March's Value - Education and Continuous Improvement


March 19

It follows, then, that the range of our possibilities at the present time does not extend far beyond the range of our present concepts. As we bring ourselves to a greater vision, we induce a greater concept and thereby demonstrate more in our experience. In this way there is a continuous growth and unfoldment taking place.

Ernest Holmes

March's Value - Education and Continuous Imrovement

March 12

This Spirit animates everything that I do, say or think. Ideas come to me daily and these ideas are divine ideas. They direct me and sustain me without effort. I am continuously directed. I am compelled to do the right thing at the right time, to say the right word at the right time, to follow the right course at all times.
Ernest Holmes


How do you experience being guided by Spirit?

March's Value - Spritual Living through Education and Continuous Improvement

We walk a path of awakening, growth, and spiritual deepening through classes, workshops, seminars, and spiritual practices that allow us to embrace education as a lifelong endeavor. We consistently welcome more and more of the Divine Nature to be realized within us and revealed through our relationships, our decisions, and our contributions to the world.

The purpose of spiritual education is to continuously expand our mental horizons and broaden our understanding of this Life and how to live it more powerfully. Reading, studying, meditating, and discussing spiritual ideas helps us avoid becoming dogmatic or stuck in a rut of our own thinking.

As you read the weekly quotes from Ernest Holmes this month, try to think of ideas for your own continued self-education and how you can stay open to the richness of spiritual knowledge available to you at the Center and beyond.

You will read every [person's] philosophy, reserving for yourself the prerogative of choice, knowing that any philosophy based on a Unitary Wholeness has the elements of truth. No philosophy is perfect, your own is not. Everything is evolving, growing, expanding.
Ernest Holmes



In what ways are you evolving, growing, and expanding?

February's Value: Diversity and Inclusivity - A Year of Values-Based, Spiritual Living

February 26

Each state of consciousness taps the same source, but has a different receptivity. Each receives what [they] asks for, according to [their] ability to embody. The Universal is Infinite; the possibility of differentiating is limitless.

Ernest Holmes


When you think of the phrase “the Universal is Infinite,” what comes to mind?

February's Value: Diversity and Inclusivity - A Year of Values-Based, Spiritual Living

February 19

We are individual entities in a Universe which furnishes the background and the foreground for each of us, but each is unique, different yet fundamentally alike.

Ernest Holmes


What, in your opinion, is the nature of the spiritual background for all of life?

February's Value: Diversity and Inclusivity - a Year of Values-Based, Spiritual Living

February 12

The great lesson that Life is trying to teach us is that we are all rooted in God, but each is an individualized center in the Divine Being. We have what Emerson called unity at the center and variety at the circumference.

Ernest Holmes


How do variety and unity coexist in your life?

February's Value: Diversity and Inclusivity - A year of Values-Based, Spiritual Living

Value: Spiritual Living as Diversity and Inclusivity
We value, embrace and celebrate the individual uniqueness and contribution of all people as they express through differences of gender, ethnicity, culture, history, experience, talents and sexual orientation. We include representatives from all our organizational constituencies in leadership, sacred service and decision-making.


How else can we embrace Oneness if not with acceptance, respect, and the understanding that each individual is a unique expression of one creative power? Individual differences include race, sexual orientation, gender, beliefs, politics and much more. And celebrating diversity means allowing and welcoming it with an affirmative attitude.


This month’s quotes from Ernest Holmes guide us to the source of diversity, and invite us to contemplate the Oneness at the root of everything.

February 5

Since everything is an individualization of the Universal, every spark is alike in that it is divine. It is made of the same Cosmic stuff, but no two sparks are identical. The process in Nature is the multiplication of an infinite variation of unified identities, no one of which is identical with the other, even though each and all are in the same field.

Ernest Holmes

What role does inclusivity play in your life?

January's Value: Spiritual Living - A Year of Values-Based, Spiritual Living

January 29, 2017

We must learn to live by inspiration. That means that we should let the spiritual depths of our being flow through our conversation and into our acts. Living by inspiration does not mean living chaotically. Our whole purpose is to make the intellect an instrument for the Spirit. This is exactly what an artist does. We must all become artists in living. To live by inspiration means to sense the divine touch in everything; to enter into the spirit of things; to enter into the joy of living.

Ernest Holmes

January's Value: Spiritual Living - A Year of Values-Based, Spiritual Living

January 22, 2017

In an intelligent study of the teachings of the Science of Mind, we come to understand that all is Love and yet all is Law. Love rules through Law. Love is the Divine Givingness; Love is the Way. Love is spontaneous; Law is impersonal. We should study the nature of Reality with this in mind, and in this way we shall avoid two grave mistakes: either viewing life as made up only of mechanical laws, or viewing it as made up only of spontaneous actions, irrespective of law and order.

Ernest Holmes

What, in your opinion, are spiritual laws, and how do they operate in your life?
