Imagine a world in which all people are awakened to their spiritual magnificence! Not their acquired religion-defined dogmatic ideas, but their own authentic, personal relationship to the Divine One. What would such a world be like—each of us aware of, connected to, and uniquely expressing Divine Reality? This inspirational idea is contained in the Global Vision of the Centers for Spiritual Living, an international association of spiritual centers and churches providing the teachings of the Science of Mind and Spirit.
A world in which we are each awakened to our spiritual magnificence is the logical outcome and social application of a principle articulated by founder Ernest Holmes in 1927, who said that there is a “unity of all life” which means that “the highest God and the innermost God are one God.” In other words, not only is all of visible creation united as one, but also the seen and unseen sides of Life are one. The Divine One expresses itself in the entirety of all that is, including as you and me.
As we explore these ideas at the Center for Spiritual Living, Santa Rosa this month, we are guided by wisdom from John Stephenson’s book Fullness of Joy: A Spiritual Guide to the Paradise Within.
Spiritual magnificence. Unity of the Divine with Its creation. Joy. How do these all fit together?
