THANK YOU!!
5-STEPS FOR LIFE POWERED BY BELIEF
By Rev. Dr. Arthur Chang
 
The Science of Mind teaches the five steps of a spiritual mind treatment or effective prayer, symbolized by the five steps that lead from Founder’s main auditorium to the top of the stage.
 
The five steps presented here for a life empowered by belief are not replacements for the classic five steps of treatment. They are supplements for helping you pray more effectively by focusing your right state of consciousness.
 
1.     Make a clear intention.
 
Clarity means an absence of conflicts. Be certain your goal is guided by your values. There are times when we desire something that is contrary to our values. Before we go into prayer for this desire, we should examine ourselves to see it fits in with our highest value. Clarity in mind will come with effectiveness of consciousness.
 
2.     Write down your intention and read it several times every day.
 
There are endless daily distractions for letting us lose focus on what is important. A composer does not forget he is a composer, nor does a good businessperson forget his mission. Successful people’s lives are empowered by belief and driven toward positive demonstration. They have an inner acceptance of their realized intention.
 
3.     Make up a short affirmation you can use like a mantra for your intention.
 
A short affirmation repeated several times per day is a good way to achieve acceptance—a habit of mind. Repetition is important, not to God but to our minds. This will turn your mere thought into belief. A belief is far more powerful than a thought. Belief is a thought embodied and creatively activated. Solomon’s summary for this is, “As a man thinks in his heart, so is he.”
 
4.     Act intelligently on your intention every day.
 
Act with intelligence. This means making adjustments as you act on your belief. Belief is thought that inspires positive action. You and God are a tag team. God takes care of the inspiration by placing options before you. Do not worry about being perfect. Learn and make adjustments.
 
5.     Demonstrations comes through life’s process.
 
The Law of Mind in always in action. Once you have the belief about your desire, engage the process. Co-creating with Divine Mind is not magic—it is the miracle of process also known as change. To be grateful for this creative process is to enjoy the journey, not just the destination.
 
That is what talented people do. They love to engage the process of their work and it strengthens their belief and increases their power to do. Get fired up by belief. It is your powerful creative engine which, when activated, makes life more fun.

October 20th

 Wednesday Night Service on ZOOM!!

Dr. Arthur's Topic: Give As You Wish to Get

The business of living fully may sometime appear to be connected to how much we can accumulate. Research has shown that after we have sufficient to take care of our basic needs, our sense of happiness and fulfillment is far more related to what we give. Is it really more blessed to give than to receive? Let us explore where we fit into that principle of better living.

The mind must conceive before the Creative Energy can produce; we must supply the avenue through which It can work. It is ready and willing. It is Its nature to spring into being through our thought and action.

Ask for help

Sometimes it’s just not feasible to navigate the tricky anxiety, depression, isolation and trauma by yourself.

But there are a number of free, confidential resources to turn to for help. Here are a few:
