Tweens and Teens Show Their Originality

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.

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.
