November 15, 2009 – Cinderella (part 3): Steps to Happily Ever After

Rev. David McArthur

“…The divine essence within me, is my guide to spiritual living… Whether in an established time of prayer or a moment’s sigh of release, I am lifted into the light of divine potential where I receive guidance and inspiration. I consciously connect with the Christ and prepare to meet my good, to succeed and to prosper in my endeavors… ‘God chose to make known how great… are the riches of the glory of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.’–Colossians 1:27” Daily Word- October 15, 2009

Thank you Rev. David for the “how to”:

Begin with being grateful for the people, animal friends, or events in your life which take you right to that place within that feels closest to God. Then acknowledge the power and love that flows through your heart. Now feel your conscious union of mind and heart with God.

You empower your knowledge with your feeling. You “enliven” it. Now you can live it.  God bless.

November 8, 2009 – Cinderella (part 2): Mystical Union

Rev. David McArthur

As we ponder the now moment, we might think of ourselves slicing time into ever thinner slices like a biologist slicing a specimen for a microscope slide. A video freeze frame is another good analogy in which a moment is frozen. That is the now. An instant in which motion and progression are not apparent– there is only the stop-action of the moment. Imagine how our solar system would look “in the now”– like a photo or drawing showing all the planets suspended in their orbits. As we ponder, we get the feeling the planets are bursting to move, they have to. The measure of potential energy ready to act is beyond our reckoning. If the planets don’t move, we feel they will explode, the potential energy is so great.

Isn’t this the potential Charles Fillmore directed us to appropriate with our intention? Remembering who we are with our minds and feeling or experiencing that knowledge with our hearts, we can, in the now moment, direct our potential to make it real. It can become reality. In the now moment when things appear to be suspended, we can nudge things into the right direction. We can “intend” them to be what fulfills our heart’s desire.  We can manifest the life we came here to live. Just as Cinderella slipped her foot into the glass slipper and claimed her right place in the kingdom, we too can slip into the now moment whenever possible in our busy day, if only for a second. In the now moment, we can direct our potential by envisioning our lives lived to their fullest, our potential becoming manifest. We can claim our rightful place in the Kingdom, and “live happily ever after”.

November 1, 2009 – Cinderella (part 1): Story of Transformation

Rev. David McArthur

Like the flower in the field reaching up to the sun, we strive to transform ourselves into what we came here to be. While positive thinking readies us, to rise to the next level we need to enfold ourselves in the love of God.

“My heart receives the comforting balm of God’s love. . .The love of God is a soothing balm, and it is also a great restorative power. . God’s love can never be diminished; good continuously pours into our lives in new and wonderful ways.” Daily Word  June 21, 1988

This is how we empower ourselves, and open ourselves to receive that good that is poured upon us without measure. As the vibrant colors of the flowers radiate their glory, let us radiate God’s love from our hearts. Let us transform ourselves into the beings we came here to be.
