We look forward to your presence here with us!
You Are Welcome here
This week's quote:
"Prosperity? A vitally alive physical body to provide a comfortable worldly home for the spiritual beings we are. Work we love so much it is not work, its play. And all the money we can spend." -Edwene Gaines
This Week's Affirmation
All things are positive and are working in my favor. I take pleasure in the blessed perfection of the ever present, eternal living moment.

Reverend Maryum's Weekly Prayer
I Awaken to Truth
In this now moment I awaken to the Truth of a Divine Universal Principle that is the source of everything seen and unseen. This all-knowing, all powerful, all present Intelligence lovingly fills every cell of my physical form. My mind taps into the One Mind.
In this awareness, I thrive and prosper through all the activities in which I am involved. I claim my success. I radiate loving-kindness wherever I go and to whomever is with me. I have an open heart and make myself available for friends and family, celebrating our spiritual magnificence. My efforts prosper my life. I am always receiving everything that allows me to live a prosperous, healthy, creative, and loving existence. I know this Truth is a gift of the Divine.
With a profound sense of gratitude, I release my knowing t the Law. It is done. And so it is. Amen
Rev. Maryum Morse

The Good Thought
Quotes About
"When you stop expecting people to be perfect, you can like them for who they are."
Donald Miller
"Ring the bells that still can ring 
Forget your perfect offering 
There is a crack in everything 
That's how the light gets in."
Leonard Cohen
"I am careful not to confuse excellence with perfection. Excellence, I can reach for; perfection is God's business."
Michael J. Fox


Intuitive Card Reading just for You!
I am pulling a card from 
"Archangel Power Tarot Cards"
by Doreen & Radleigh!

Queen of Gabriel
Passionate, Charming, Brilliant, Independent
"You can do anything right now! Go after what you want. The ability to attract helpful people.
Situations: You can do anything right now! You may not fully grasp how wonderful you are, but those around you definitely see it! It's time to believe in yourself. Your kind eagerness to help others in their lives will attract people willing to do the same for you.
People: A very charming person whom everyone likes. Someone who is able to balance all aspects of his or her life with ease and grace.
Additional meaning: Following through on advice you receive. Going after what you want. Experiencing excellent health."
What stands out for me with this card is: "It's time to believe in yourself"
I asked Spirit "what do we need to know as a community today" and this most excellent card came up.
Personally, I woke up feeling pretty good health wise - which made it already 100% better than the day before when I was suffering from a back spasm.
I moved about without pain and felt so rested and full of vitality, that I got up and headed into the the Center to work at a desk to help maintain my good back health.

My good fortune almost felt bewildering but I have learned never to question the freshness and indomitable will of a brand new day, where a thousand wonderful possibilities can unfold - It is my sincerest wish that everyone in our congregation is having as fantastic a day as mine.
Well this card says "Hell Yeah " that is what is happening.
Let's talk about the symbols:
This card the Queen of Gabriel breaks down to this
  • Queens stand for Divine Feminine energies that herald creative powers flying up from the depths of you to help you stand up for yourself, help you get into direct contact with your Inner Go-Getter so that you may do what needs to be done.
For instance, if we want the word to get out about how awesome we are - it's time to light those fires and kick them tires!  Now the heavens conspire for your grand and glorious good.  Anything you touch today is golden!
Wisdom will appear in our lives as sound advice and this card states that we are urged to follow. We can trust it.   The creative impulse that the Queen of Gabriel speaks to is this one theme "Together we can reach for the stars when we remember that we can do more as a team."
So ditch your Lone Wolf McQuade ways, turn on your heart and flow from that wellspring of sunlight and possibilities that reside there.  
This Queen of Gabriel says "You are beautiful, charming, and what you so effortless offer through your talented presence, is so what is needed for the world right now!"
Queens are about mastery, wisdom and productivity under the Gabriel banner (which in Rider-Waite translates as WANDS).
We can handle anything if we are confident in our natural talent and abilities. Now's not the time to be shy and retiring. Devise a sound plan and go out there and get busy. Mother Nature is cooperating - filling you full of chutzpah and and helping you to unleash your natural grace so that you can tackle anything you like.
Want more love, become the essence of love.
Want more chip-chop change (folding money - wink) delve into your creativity vaults and figure out how to make that hobby of yours pay!
It's time to take that fire in the belly and take your wildest dreams on.
  Sister, Brother Mama, Papa, Girlfriend - whatever juicy and delicious persona your creativity takes form as - now is the time to access that deep Goddess energy within you and allow your magical touch to make every single area in your life flourish !
You are lucky. Your are blessed. Allow your spiritual destiny to manifest!.
Here's a quote about believing in yourself:
"You may be the only person left who believes in you, but it's enough. It takes just one star to pierce a universe of darkness. Never give up."
Richelle E. Goodrich
Here's an affirmation to use and let the peace from within flow:
"I am an open channel for divine guidance, love and light. It is my duty to shine this bright!"
  And so it is.
And So It Is.

What Brother Ernie said:
On Perfection

I represent the principle of perfection
In each human being, the Whole is represented, and the entire knowledge of wisdom, of health, and the perfection of every act, manifests-is represented--and it is through this Inner Divine Voice, the Divine Nature within us, that we are able to perceive and trust, and come into conscious contact with, this Divine Principle. In the sight of this Within, we are perfect. We must try to see ourselves as God sees us, free and filled with vitality and sufficiency for every occasion.
It is not enough to confess that God is the only Power there is. It is only when this consciousness of power is hooked to the dynamo of the mind that there is generated, through the imagination, an embodiment of that which is able to loose it in any direction it sees fit. It is not enough merely to say that there is One Mind and that Mind is God. To this we must add: "That Mind is my mind now." That completes the thought, makes possible a loosing of the Divine Intelligence through our own imagination.
Let us not forget that, in treatment, we must sense the embodiment of that which we wish to experience. The statements which are made in the treatment are for the purpose of delivering to the imagination, in a certain form, THAT WHICH WAS TRUE BEFORE WE MADE THE STATEMENTS. The whole problem is not one of creation, but one of direction, and there is no direction unless there is first an embodiment. Let us try this in our mediation. We know that we reflect the Divine Perfection and that there is an intuition within us which guides us. We know that all the power there is and all the presence there is, is this perfect Spirit, this Divine Reality, which is around us and through us and in us. Now, each turning directly to his own thought, says:
"The Spirit within me, which is God, the Living Spirit Almighty, is Perfection. It is Wholeness; It is Peace. It is Divine Guidance, perfect peace, Complete Wholeness, Absolute Perfection, and right now, this moment, this Spirit governs every act of my life. It surrounds me with Light, in which there is no darkness, no gloom, no heaviness and no fear. In this Light, I live and move and have my being. And this Light dispels all darkness and casts out all fear.
"This Divine Wisdom within me guides every act, directs everything in my life, toward happiness, toward peace, toward power; and being the Spirit of Love, It surrounds me with beauty, with friendship and with joy. Being the giver of Life, every day I receive that which is perfect, abundant, happy, joyful and free. Being that Divine Thing which individualizes in me, It is entirely individual, personal and unique. I am the expression of my own complete self, and there is no barrier or bar to that self-expression. Being the Spirit of Substance, that Spirit within me is the Father of Supply, and it brings to me everything necessary to my unfoldment, and keeps me in the wisdom through which It governs me, now and forever."
