It was great to meet with people, share insights, experiences, and ideas for progress and betterment.
The latter half of my visit was for my annual spiritual Association meting. Each year I gather with a group of people to listen to and learn new spiritual ideas and metaphysical insights. These are lessons on Life, Love, Spirit, Soul, Mind. Everyone who goes through a class in Christian Science becomes part of an annual Association. It’s like a post-graduate course in metaphysics (in learning more about a spiritual sense of God).
I am very grateful for these annual Association meetings where I get to learn and expand my spiritual growth. I attended a spiritual talk on Saturday and participated in workshops throughout the weekend.
One of the “Life Lessons” I learned about this weekend was:
- Be true to your spiritual selfhood—your unique individuality.
Mankind has such diversity. And I appreciate each one’s uniqueness. We don’t have to try to be like someone else. And, in fact, we can’t — we each have our own niche to fulfill.
“Each individual must fulfill his own niche in time and eternity.” (Retrospection and Introspection by Mary Baker Eddy)
Have you ever considered that you have an eternal purpose? That you will always have a purpose? And that those who have gone before you have a purpose and are expressing it now?
Life is another name for God. And we all have the same life! Those who have passed on are aware and conscious of their eternal experience. I think this is a beautiful concept to meditate on: those who have gone before us are still fully expressing their life purpose, embodying eternal Life, and living in divine Love, never separated from Good.
If we listen to our spiritual intuition, we will hear these insights; we will see the wholeness and completeness of Life; Life is really like a sphere (and not a straight line with a start and finish).
I hope these ideas will give you some peace and inspire you to live the vitality Life and Love in your day today.
