We will focus on learning to be open to intuition and to be willing to make wise choices as we support each other in recognizing the truth, That there is a Power for Good - greater than we are - and we can use It. This is not about any particular food, fitness, or medical plan. It's about us, our beliefs, our minds, and our choices. We will practice using Spiritual Principles to strengthen our innate ability to be healthy in mind and body as we come together to learn to live well and enjoy This Thing called Life!

Christian D. Larson (1874-1954) is credited as being the founder of the New Thought movement. One time honorary president of the International New Thought Alliance, Larson exercised considerable influence over Religious Science founder Ernest Holmes in his early career. Larson was associate editor and a frequent contributor of Science of Mind magazine beginning in 1929.
From the book first published in 1913: “To live always in the Secret Places of the Most High. To think only those thoughts that are inspired from above, To do all things in the conviction that God is with us, To give the best to all the world with no thought of reward. To leave all recompense to Him who doeth all things well. To love everybody as God loves us, and be Kind as He is Kind, To ask God for everything and in faith expect everything, To live in perpetual gratitude to Him who gives everything. To love God so much that we can inwardly feel that My Father and I are one. This is to pray without ceasing, the true worship of the soul.”
"THE PLACES THAT SCARE YOU" By Pema Chodron - DROP IN BOOK STUDY with Rev. Catherine Bonin Friday afternoons beginning March 18th 3:30 - 5:00pm . The Claypool Learning Center 390 Oak Ave #H, Carlsbad
Lifelong guidance for learning to change the way we relate to the scary and difficult moments of our lives, showing us how we can use all of our difficulties and fears as a way to soften our hearts and open us to greater kindness.
We always have a choice in how we react to the circumstances of our lives. We can let them harden us and make us increasingly resentful and afraid, or we can let them soften us and allow our inherent human kindness to shine through. Here Pema Chödrön provides essential tools for dealing with the many difficulties that life throws our way, teaching us how to awaken our basic human goodness and connect deeply with others—to accept ourselves and everything around us complete with faults and imperfections. She shows the strength that comes from staying in touch with what’s happening in our lives right now and helps us unmask the ways in which our egos cause us to resist life as it is. If we go to the places that scare us, Pema suggests, we just might find the boundless life we’ve always dreamed of.
