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 September 19, 2021


           In the simplest of terms, both karma and cause and effect can be phrased as “what goes around comes around.”  The Law of G-d is always present with us, just like the air that we breathe and gravity. Our relationship to this Law, unlike our relationship with oxygen and gravity, is mental, not physical. It is continually working not only through our words and our thoughts, but our feelings as well. In fact, I would suggest that our feelings are more important to cause and effect than anything else. We may say the nicest things to someone whom we truly dislike, our words may deceive the other person, but not the law of cause and effect.

         Saint Augustine: “G-d loves each of us as if there were only one of us.”

         I have been thinking about the Law of Attraction and wondering why it hasn’t gained more interest in the world than it has. But then, the Apostle’s cautionary words in the ancient scriptures, “as you sow, so shall you reap,” are contained in few if any Christian sermons. Most of those who are familiar with the words have never delved into their profound meaning. What we do know is that words describing cause and effect have been pronounced throughout the centuries, and soon forgotten.

          In the 19th Century we started seeing the words “G-d is no respecter of persons” and this is certainly in line with St. Augustine’s words. This is a hard truth for those who believe that their prayers to a “God out there somewhere” is listening to them, and to those that think they have a personal relationship with Jesus. Prayers are mental disclosures that reveal to us what we truly believe. Not what we say we believe, or what we think we should believe, but what we truly believe. If we are waiting for a god or gods to save us from our illnesses or financial issues, or relationship issues, we shall have a long wait. G-d, Jesus, Buddha, Krishna and others cannot “think for us” and they definitely cannot “feel for us” and it is only from taking dominion over our thoughts and feelings that we can change any situation we may be faced with.

         Let us always remember and never forget, the Law of G-d, is G-d, within us, surrounding us, pressing against us, always present. It is the Power, the Intelligence, and the Spirit of us in action.

Keep the Faith!
