Everyday Spirituality

Everyday Spirituality

Continued Intro to Cheryl Petersen, 7

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.

Rest rather than sleep
With all due respect for a good night’s sleep, I fail to see why sleep is automatically credited as the producer of rest. It's a bit misleading. Sleep is a state of unconsciousness or oblivion. Not exactly the best ingredients for rest. I'm ...

Getting along
Every time steam starts coming out my ears when my husband annoys me, I remind myself, there is no lack of ideas, and I simmer down. It’s not that I’ve adapted to annoyance in our 32-year marriage. It’s that I’ve realized that I can ...
