Spiritual Uplift 8/29/07

August 29, 2007
A Practice of the Heart! August 29, 2007
“To all treatments, no matter how intellectually or analytically correct they may be, there must be added this deep feeling and conviction that enable one to commune with the Invisible. “

–Dr. Ernest Holmes–

RURTR–these are the first letters of the names for the steps of Spiritual Mind Treatment or scientific prayer: Recognition, Unification, Realization, Thanksgiving, and Release. These are the steps that the Practitioner/scientist uses to align his or her thoughts with the one Mind of the Universe. However, as Holmes implies in the above quote, there is a deeper, broader understanding that Practitioners have of the divine process of manifestation. Just like an artist, Practitioners turn their awareness to the inner divine Muse and allow themselves to become a willing vessel for the artistry of Spirit to fill with its beauty and magnificence.

So many times we feel as though our prayers are unanswered; however, often the actual circumstance is that we are not prepared to receive our good. This is where the other connotation of RURTR comes in: Are You Ready to Receive? Here the Practitioner/artist becomes available as a open, purified channel for the bounty of Spirit to move through, thereby completing the preparations for divine manifestation to take place.

The Practitioners of the Community for Spiritual Living, whether newly licensed or in service for five years or more, are committed to using their gifts and talents on behalf of our radiant spiritual community, uplifting and inspiring all who come into their presence.
AND SO IT IS!

“This is what an artist feels. In a sense he weds himself to the essence of beauty and draws it into his own being until beauty becomes diffused through his technique and makes an imprint that the intellect cannot analyze.”

–Dr. Ernest Holmes–.

Chandogya Upanishad 8.1 2-3

If someone says to you,
“in the fortified city of the imperishable,
our body, there is a lotus
and in this lotus a tiny space:
what does it contain that one
should desire to know it?”

You must reply:
“As vast as this space without
is the tiny space within your heart:
heaven and earth are found in it,
fire and air, sun and moon,
lightening and the constellations,
whatever belongs to you here below
and all that doesn’t,
all this is gathered in that tiny space
within your heart.”

For the next few weeks we will be presenting (on topic) passages from The Science of the Mind – Original 1926 Text by Ernest Homes. It is our hope that this will provide a unique perspective on Dr. Homes own words. The text is now available at the CSL bookstore.

The great mystics have been illumined, that is , they have, at times, seen through the veil of matter and perceived the Spiritual Universe. They have taught that the Kingdom of God is NOW PRESENT AND NEEDS BUT TO BE REALIZED; and they have, apparently, sensed that this Kingdom is within….the Spirit within them has borne witness to the Truth.
