Flashback Can Move Us Forward

The expression mind over matter was popularized during the 1960’s and 70’s, but then so was the phrase peace and love, however their references were myopic. Peace and love meant no war and sex. Mind over matter is used to indicate the human mind over physical matter. But these phrases were not practical, we now know, sex is not love and the human mind is categorically blinkered.

As with anything “popular” we need to assess calmly the bigger picture. We then find a realistic answer of  spiritual love and spiritual consciousness which are supported by divine Mind. As human foibles surrender to the divine Mind, our behavior becomes practical and safe. Following divine Mind, we find peace, love and power over matter.

From Science and Health, “Humanity begins to understand the power of mind over matter and the importance of better thinking. Be aware: some thought influences can pretend to be good or in our best interest, but are just as dangerous as harmful drugs. This is mental malpractice and is criminal, working against common humanity, honesty, and justice. Divine Mind-practice requires human mind to yield to the divine consciousness, to unite with the spiritual thought moving heavenward.”

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 ...

The qualifications for Communion
Questions are posed today to people who profess to love Jesus: If that Godlike and glorified man were physically on earth today, would you reject him? Would you deny him the rights of humanity if he entertained any other lifestyle or religion ...

Bones and crayons
I was listening to some people argue over whether or not stories in the Bible are true. I tilted my head and grinned, thinking of something better to do like wash the windows. Archeologists have found some evidence to validate historical ...
