Creating Space for Gratitude

Recently, I set out to make room in the garage for a recent purchase.  Clearing the garage seemed easy enough until I opened the door and turned on the lights.  The space was filled with pieces of furniture that we were no longer using, items that I cannot identify what they used to be or connect to, unopened boxes from our recent consolidation of two lives and households.  I realized that this was not your run of the mill “Honey-do” task; this was an opportunity to demonstrate the Law of Circulation in my life rather than play a life-sized game of Tetris.  In November, we will begin to explore what it means to create and become a space for gratitude in an unfinished world. If you think there may be room in your heart, mind, body, and soul for even a little bit of gratitude, you won’t want to miss a single moment of the journey.


Sunday, November 1 ~ Boundless Generosity 

Gratitude brings down the walls of isolation and allows us to experience a deeper, more prosperous life.  It takes scraps, remnants, pieces, and parts of this, creating a bounty of abundance. It turns the unseen into the unforgettable, the invisible into the embraceable, the confined into the free indeed, the lost into the beloved. It quietly reimagines crumbs and leftovers as a feast, stirs the saddened into the ecstatic, and shakes the soundly sleeping into the wide awake.  Gratitude makes sense of our longings, connects the dots enough to remind us of the strength in possibility, brings us peace with each breath, and creates a vision for all our tomorrows. Gratitude turns absolutely nothing into our everything!

Belonging and Connection


"Every one of us has within ourself

the power to consciously cooperate

with the spiritual side of our existence

in such a way that it will create for us

a new body and a new environment and

a greater happiness."

Ernest Holmes. Opening Our Minds to God 




Racism in the United States

Centers for Spiritual Living calls for it to end!

We are grieving lives that ought not to have been lost.  George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery, are the most recent in a list of countless unarmed African-American and Black people who have been murdered for the color of their skin over the past 400 years in the US. Too many generations have suffered and it has never been, and is not now, acceptable. 

We denounce racism in all its forms: the starkness of unapologetic, intentional racism; the racism of silence in the face of injustice; the systemic racism inherent in our education, justice, income and opportunity inequity; and the racism that lies hidden in our individual hearts and minds. 

We envision a world where personal responsibility joins with social conscience in every area of the political, corporate, academic, and social sectors. We value a community-wide climate of safety that arises from compassion, justice, mutual respect, and kindness. Therefore, we join our founder, Dr. Ernest Holmes, who, echoing the words of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., said “You and I should form the habit of taking definite time each day to contemplate and affirm peace with justice—for there is no peace possible without justice. But faith without works is dead. We should not only pray, we should act, each contributing the best [they have] to the common purpose, each willing to make any sacrifice necessary…[for] there can be no individual self-preservation without the preservation of all . . .”*

We call upon ourselves and the faith communities in the US to take action that shows we have heard the cry of suffering, and we own our responsibility for it. Whether that action is prayer, donations to organizations that promote racial justice, rigorous self-education, or active engagement, let not this moment in history pass unattended. May the actions we take be steeped in peace and respect for the sacredness of each life, knowing that whatever we do, individually and collectively, must be Divinely directed from a higher consciousness. When we apply our proven spiritual principles through rigorous practices and compassionate action, the desired results cannot fail to demonstrate.
