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.

Once experts realized genes aren’t stable and can mutate, the human mind took off in multiple directions, some not so good. Genetically modified organisms (GMO’s) have become popular, although not exactly admired. Many of the plants and trees we grow have been forced selected. For example,

Inspiring person, Rosamond Carr
Not what I’d classify as a religious person, but spiritual, Rosamond Halsey Carr tells her story in her book, Land of a Thousand Hills: My Life in Rwanda. Published in 2001 and read by me last month, I recommend this book as a picture of woman’s self-realized independence, inner splendor, and ou

A star gymnast
Film, The Gabby Douglas Story (2014), captured many of the emotions that surely were experienced before medals were earned at the 2008 Olympics. Gabby’s family, already at a level of impoverishment, sacrificed for Gabby Douglas to continue training. And, although tempted, Gabby didn’t give up.
