Our Foundation Spiritual Principles:


  • G-d (Intelligence, Power, Spirit) is Absolute Good, everywhere present.
  • Every human being is an expression of the divine; the Christ Spirit, by whatever name, indwells all people. Their very essence is of G-d, and therefore they are also inherently good.

  • Human beings create their experience by the activity of their thinking. Everything in the manifest realm has its beginning in thought.

  • Prayer is creative thinking that heightens the connection with G-d-mind and therefore brings forth wisdom, healing, prosperity and everything good.

  • Knowing and understanding the laws of life, also called Truth, are not enough. A person must also live the Truth that he or she knows.

Weekly Message for July 25, 2021


            Let's think about these words from Ernest Holmes: "Naturally our first thought is that we would like to manifest health of the body, peace of mind, prosperity in our affairs or business, neutralize a circumstance which is causing unhappiness, or attract something good to ourselves that we have not been enjoying. Such desire is natural and normal in every way, and the possibility of such manifestation already exists within the mind of every living soul. Each one of us has within our being the power to consciously cooperate with the spiritual side of our existence in such a way that it will create for us a healthy body and a new environment and greater happiness. But the greatest good that this philosophy of life gives us is a sense of certainty, a sense of the reality of our own soul, of continuity of our own individualized being, and of the relation of this being (myself) to the great All, the great I AM."

            It has been fascinating to read all the criticisms of Jeff Bezos after his Space Flight this past week. The line of criticism was mostly like, "he could be using his money to help those in need, or pay his workers more." This is typical of worldly thinking that the wealthy can benefit others by giving them money, or more money. When in reality, everyone has it in them to create greater abundance for themselves. Those who think the wealthy are responsible for the welfare of others, are in truth, saying that the others lack the ability to help themselves.

          This space flight was Jeff Bezos' dream, he said. Don't we all want to see our dreams realized? Resenting or criticizing someone else realizing their dream is a sure way to obstruct our own dreams from becoming our reality. We can't resent the wealth of others and expect to demonstrate wealth of our own.

         By the grace of that which created us, we all have self-choice through the activity of our thoughts, words, and feelings. We can choose a good life, a joyful life and a wonderful life. This is everyone's truth, but not everyone is mentally willing to accept it because they have allowed the "worldly belief" in duality to obstruct the development of their consciousness. There is no "withholding god" or a "god's will for us" and there is not god testing or challenging us with struggle or pain. That is a god of superstition and of primitive people. When we open our minds to the Power of "I AM" within us, within our own mind and soul, we will be open to receive our good; to see our dreams come true, to realize the desires of our heart. "I AM" is the inherent Power of choice that automatically draws to us the corresponding action to what we affirm for ourselves. Even when everyone around us may see it as silly or impossible. "To whom much is given, much is required" we can read in the ancient wisdom. That which is required is an absolute belief that this Power of "I AM" cannot be obstructed. I AM realizing right now, in this moment, that whatever it is that you desire, dream about, or plan, to have, to do, or to be, is yours for the taking, if you believe in this Power and believe in yourself, absolutely!


Keep the Faith!
