Everyday Spirituality


Continued Intro to Cheryl Petersen, 7

posted by Cheryl Petersen

Because of hindsight, my human history has been oversimplified and underestimated, not taking into consideration the uncertainties I faced at the time. Basically, hindsight is biased and unable to be objective.

My brief history relates to where I am today. However, human lives are multifaceted and quite vulnerable to twists and turns and a variety of outcomes. I actually tried a few times, to force myself in a different direction, especially when my goal seemed so misunderstood. Therefore, if I was now a stunt woman, I would telling about the times I climbed steep cliffs, went sky diving, or bungee jumping. Or, if today, I was a heavy machine operator, the elements of my history would center around the equipment I operated on the farm. But, bottom line is: I strive to reflect the interconnectedness of spiritual teachings as a working reality every day, and happen to do so through the study of divine Science through which I find spiritual truths are applicable to everyday situations and offer a spiritual power unequalled to worldly powers.

A broader picture of my  human history includes working as a newspaper correspondent, cleaning houses, operating a D6 caterpillar, doing accounting, managing a large Farmer’s Market, cooking, baking, serving at a Plant Nursery, and selling jewelry. I’ve traveled, volunteered, and have been self-employed as a Christian Science Practitioner, with a public office, offering spiritual treatment  to people of all faiths, for 13 years. I put puzzles together and read voraciously.  I exercise by shoveling snow or mowing lawn or going for a hike. I do yoga stretches. I drink tea and eat salt & vinegar potato chips for snacks. I can take or leave these human activities, however, I hold onto with all my might, heart, and soul, the sharing of universal truth and love.

Are we thinking?
The activity of thinking comes in many disguises. Thinking can be quiet, loud, scary, peaceful, progressive, or a completely thoughtless exercise. Some thinking isn’t thinking at all. Examples of thoughtless thinking: A mental rehearsal of the day’s activities. A repetition of the

What I learned in third grade
When I first started reporting for the newspaper, the learning curve was steep. An enormous effort was needed on my part to interview productively then write an article that made sense. Did I mention the enormous effort? I would literally sweat when writing. Writing is more effortless today

Human minds aren't judging us as much as we think
It’s important to feel good about our self. When we don’t feel good about our self, our level of self-consciousness is so weighty it takes all the fun out of life. The enormous scope of what it takes for a person to feel good about themselves is mind-boggling. I’ve met people who feel go
