Flashback Can Move Us Forward

posted by Cheryl Petersen

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.”

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

I don't want to be afraid of God
