Tweens and Teens Show Their Originality

posted by Cheryl Petersen

For those of you who don’t know, I am diligently working on the 4th edition of the revision and update of 21st Century Science and Health. As I work, I continue to be happily astonished at the dynamic spiritual truths that can be experienced every day.

Just this morning I was sincerely contemplating a progressive idea and worded it as such, “Humanity must learn that the influences of propaganda or crowd thinking are powerless. Crowd thinking is oppressive, but only a phase of nothingness. Christian Science devastates the vacuum of independent thinking and preeminently promotes good-will and virtue in families and therefore in the community.”

There is no cruise control for mind. And, fortunately, our minds can be influenced by spiritual intelligence, instead of being manipulated by the downward spiral mortal thinking.

And, one hour later, the phone rang and the caller asked, “Cheryl, can you come to Hoyt Park right now and write up an article for the newspaper about the tweens activity we have going on right now?”

“Well, sure,” I responded, laughing at the fact I had just made some hot tea to sip.

I dressed warm and hopped on the motorcycle to drive to Hoyt Park to cover the story. Volunteer adults had brought art supplies to Hoyt Park for kids to make paper mâché projects and to paint blocks, rocks, or canvas. The volunteers have formed under the Community Action Network Program with the goal to provide extracurricular activity that continues to let children develop in a healthy creative environment.

The group of kids and volunteers was vibrant and it was an honor to see how the law of Love and Truth devastates idle or confused thinking. Good-will, originality, attentiveness, wholesome socializing, and delight were prevalent and alive in the family of humanity and the community.

From 21st Century Science and Health: On our spiritual journey, if we sympathize with mortality, we will be at the beck and call of error and follow a zig-zag course getting nowhere. If we travel with the worldly minded, we get sucked into a nasty cycle. A good example of this is randomly walking

Gender fluidity and spirituality
In our sex obsessed world, the propaganda of twirling human gender and identity can’t help but alter language, views, laws, and religious creeds. The terms “non-binary” or “gender fluidity” have recently been added to the more newly established titles of: gender neutral, gay, lesbian, a

Control is more than controlling someone or something
In the Bible, the book of Job portrays a man, Job, who gets robbed of everything by the Devil. Everything human beings consider to be good and deserving gets taken away by the Devil. As Job lay in bed suffering, his friends visit. The older friends start psychobabbling as to why Job is in his pre

A deep breath of color
From 21st Century Science and Health, "The nature of spirituality is peaceful and blessed." You will go out in joy     and be led forth in peace; the mountains and hills     will burst into song before you, and all the trees of the field     will clap their hands.   Isa. 55:12,

One chip is enough
Marketing experts adapt people to the habit of eating not just one chip, but the whole bag. The problem with this doctrine is we get fat and confused. Many year ago, by sheer circumstance I was recuperating from an accident and found I just couldn’t eat very much at a time. One chip, or rather
