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.

In training with love
Years ago, we had horses. It was when a new revolution in horse training was occurring. Trainers were transitioning away from “breaking” horses, to training with compassion and understanding. We don’t have to follow the human pattern. “You’re hopeless, you religion scholars and Phari

Hanging out with Christ
It’s a tough call. If I found myself sitting in a boat, in rough water, and then I saw Christ Jesus walking by on the water, I don’t know if I’d risk walking on the water to be with Christ. Would I sit in the boat? The safety of the boat is already precarious, bobbing and thrashing in st

Simultaneous contrast
Have you ever looked at paint samples? Those dinky squares of colors in paint stores? You decide on teal green and take a gallon home to paint a room. Once on the wall, you want to gag. Returning to the store and paint samples, you select another color with caution. Deciding on emerald green,
