June Theme: Protect the Vulnerable – Empowerment
SOM Point of View
Social engagement when centered from the heart is a mobilization of individual energies into communal power providing a way to support a world that works for all – from the individual to the collective.
Power – The Power that holds a grain of sand in place is the same Power that holds the planets in their places. There is nothing big or little or hard or easy as far as the Power is concerned. It is the same Power working in and upon everything. This is the Power we use. (SOM, March 2002, p. 36)
Heart-Centered – The marvelous teaching of Jesus is not quite so soft as it sounds. His words are statements of the great laws of cause and effect; laws that produce justice without judgment — the inevitable result of laws that work with mathematical certainty. You cannot love and hate at the same time, nor can anyone else. Therefore, this man of wisdom said that light overcomes darkness. He did not say that darkness overcomes light. (This Thing Called You, 1948, p. 21.3)
Active Love – When we let the love that is within us go out to the God who is in all people and the Divine Presence that is in all things, then we are loving God with all our heart and with all our soul and mind, because we are recognizing that the Spirit within us is the same Spirit that we meet in others. This is loving our neighbors as ourselves. (365 Science of Mind (2001), p. 34.1)
Call to Action
When Susan B. Anthony, an American social reformer and women’s rights activist was asked if she ever prayer she said, “I pray every single second of my life; not on my knees, but with my work. My prayer is to lift women to equality with men. Work and worship are one with me. I cannot imagine a God of the universe made happy by my getting down on my knees and calling him ‘great.’ The Nineteenth Amendment, which granted women the right to vote, was ratified a Century after the birth of Susan B. Anthony. I am certain that the results of this social change came from the intersection of the spiritual inner work being done across our Country and the practical outer work inspired by our ownership of oneness and love.
What at the ways that we can ground in our teaching, heart connect with others in the world, and collectively bring, reveal, manifest, a better world for us all?
“I see the conditions in our world that are a call for prayer and action! Together in Oneness we join hands, hearts, and minds to co-create a more, kind, loving, and abundant life for all!”
Join us each Sunday as we discuss the benefits of applying spiritual principles in our lives.
