Live with passion

Live with passion

How long has it been since life stirred your heart? That’s too long.
If you’re not feeling intensely, you’re not living fully. Let passion carry you away, for passion will carry you to amazing places.
Substance matters, quality matters, excellence, awe and magnificence matter. Life is about so much more than just checking the boxes.
Bring to each moment the whole of your multifaceted self. Feel the confidence of all you are and all you know, the mystery of all that is beyond, unknown, unknowable.

When Things Look The Worst …. by Rev. John Scott

Ernest Holmes, who gave the world the teaching known as Science of Mind, in his textbook of the same name, tells us what to do when things in our world look the worst:

I Am A Part Of All .....by Rev. John Scott

Each of us is an intrinsic part of the intricate Web of Life. We are all connected to all lifekind everywhere. Whatever affects one part of the web affects all other parts, sometimes in ways that are not immediately obvious. For example, did my pausing to acknowledge a little child begging at the traffic lights here in Kingston, stay the hand of an abused child somewhere across the world, who was about to slash his/her wrist? I will never know.

What's on your mind?

The Discovery session on Sunday, March 27 was interesting – as usual. It certainly was , As Rev John described it, “Another session of applied learning. A shared exploration of this wonderful teaching (Science of Mind) .
The topic was a question: “What’s on your mind?” and most of the participants had stuff on their minds. Here are some of the topics:
• Have I grown spiritually? Yes, I’m now focusing more on God.
• I’ve been thinking about synchronicity and God.
• I’m realizing the happiness of Jamaicans. We have the ability to laugh --[to tek kin teet an kibba heart bun.]

Discovery on Buju

Not surprisingly, the Discovery topic for Sunday, Feb. 27, “Your take on Buju,” generated a lot of views. Solicited by the facilitator Rev John Scott, they ranged from expressions about the dancehall artist’s appearance to comments on his spirituality. Here are some:
• I couldn’t see him before, with all that hair on his face. Now that he’s cleaned up, he’s got personality.
• This earth plane is a school and we are here to learn. Buju will learn. He’s an evolved soul and his consciousness must express.
• Buju must learn the power of the spoken word.

Living love

“Living Love” was the title of the Discovery discussion after Sunday Service on February 13. Led by Pastor John Scott, the session was a lively as usual, perhaps because love was in the air. The next day was, of course, Valentine’s Day.
Rev. John said that people get socialized into “conditional love,” and too often love others if they do what we want and think as we think. One was to cure an addiction to conditional loving, he said was to upgrade the addiction to a preference. For example, we might change “You must do X,” to “I’d prefer if you would do X.”

How do you manage change?

"Managing change" was the theme of the Discovery discussion led by Rev John Scott on Sunday last. The session proved to be as enlightening as the ones before it. There was, of course, general agreement that change is inevitable, but questions did arise. Is change linear and incremental, or is there instantaneous change? Is change welcomed, or is it resisted? What is the agent of change -- the invidiaual or "the Father within?" These were only some of the questions.
Opinions were wide-raiging and interesting. Here are some.

We are having a great year

It's going to be a great year for our church. You can tell for it has started so well.

Discovery 24 October -Spirit's highest idea for our lives

There were many interesting answers to the four questions posed by Rev John in the Visioning exercise that constituted the Discovery session on October 24. The questions were: “What is Spirit’s highest idea for my life right now? What do I need to be or become to manifest that idea? What do I need to release today in ordr to actualize Spirit’s vision for me? What else do I need to know or do for Spirit’s highest idea of me to shine through?”
Answers to question 1 included: Feed my children and Service.

Are Jamaicans indisciplined?

Are Jamaicans indisciplined?
That’s the question posed at the Discovery Session after Sunday Service on 10, 10. 10 (a special day, numerologically speaking). Out of the discussion, which was led by Temple of Light co-pastor Rev John, came a variety of observations.
There was the straightforward: “Our leading athletes and musicians are very disciplined. That’s why they are on top.”
The explanatory: ”The race consciousness influences our behaviour.”
The profound: “Discipline springs from being passionate about something.”
