Science of Mind Magazine August 2011

From the Science of Mind magazine Daily guides: Tuesday, August 16, 2011

Let’s dare to be ourselves, for we do that better than anyone else can.

- Shirley Briggs

I see that the future is bright with promise. It beckons me forward into a more complete realization of my own worth and my rightful place in the Universe. 

- The Science of Mind, page 246

My sister-in-law gave me a journal six months before I had set the date to go sky-diving for the first time. I was terrified of sky-diving, but committed to jumping as a means of overcoming fear. The title of the journal? Courage Every Day. My sister-in-law had no idea of my sky-diving plans.

The journal is full of courage-related quotes, and I’d like to share my favorites. Alfred Montapert wrote, “Welcome problems and eat them for breakfast.” Thinking we don’t have power to overcome is the victim’s stance. We are powerful beings, God in form, and God has our backs in every moment. There is no difficulty that we cannot rise above when we believe in ourselves and the One Power that is all of creation.

Richard Tate wrote, “Orville Wright didn’t have a pilot’s license.” What greater way to be a hero to yourself than to do something that has not been done before? Orville Wright didn’t know how to fly, but he figured it out. It is quite heroic to persevere through unknowns and uncertainty to do or be something new.

Mahatma Gandhi wrote, “There is a person now slumbering within us, which if awakened would do to evil what light does to darkness.” The slumbering person within us is awakened by consistent spiritual practice, elevating our own and all human consciousness above evil—it simply fades away into nothingness. Our most heroic acts are those that enable us to truly know ourselves in all our guts and glory.

Knowing that God always has my back, I leap into the adventure that is my life. I am a hero in my own eyes.

* I understand that some people may have a problem with the word ‘God’. The context here is It is the Quantum Energy and Intelligence that physicists tell us that we exist within. Some people refer to It as that Love Field of Energy around us and inside us. Or Source Energy, Universal Intelligence, Higher Power… Man has given it many names and each name comes from man’s own awareness of who he considers himself to be in the cosmology of life.
