A positive path for spiritual living

6-27-21 Talk Notes: Whose Mind Is It? (Rev. Mark Schindler)

Whose Mind Is It?

 

“Man is the power of God in action. The power to control his thinking is the highest gift given to man. There is a universal, creative force that urges man forward to the recognition of the creative power of individual thought.”
Charles Fillmore Keep A True Lent pg 153

 

“We must relieve our minds of these ideas of a personal God ruling over us in an arbitrary, manlike manner. God is mind. Mind evolves ideas. These ideas are evolved in an orderly way. The laws of mind are just as exact and undeviating as the laws of mathematics or music. To recognize this is the starting point in finding God.”
Charles Fillmore Jesus Christ Heals pg 33-34

 

“The thinking faculty in you makes you a free agent, because it is your creative center. In and through this one power you establish your consciousness--you build your world.”
Charles Fillmore Dynamics For Living pg 63-64.

 

Commerce Without Morality

  • “A way of life in which our nobler goals and aspirations are subsumed into the desire to produce and consume more and more.” 

 

Science Without Humanity

  • “Science without humanity is the result of focusing on remaking the world without the corresponding focus of remaking ourselves.”

 

“Lasting change happens when people see for themselves that a different way of life is more fulfilling than their present one.  Our image of the human being, of ourselves, influences every aspect of our lives.  The first step in creating a healthy, peaceful post-industrial era is for a few of us to start basing our lives on a higher image of who we are and a deeper understanding of what we need for a satisfying life.”
