If You Want to be Free, Come Study With Me

By Dr. Jim Turrell

The great advantage of our teaching is in its ability to set you free. Free from fear, resentment, limitation, and regret. Very few teachings have this ability because most teachings and philosophies build their view of life from an idea that somehow we are INCOMPLETE. That there is a supernatural component of life, that we must earn, learn or have a special talent for in order to succeed. It is easy to get lost in a world of false assumptions and negative energy.
Our teaching says, “To suppose that the Creative Intelligence of the Universe would create you in bondage and leave you bound, would be to dishonor the Creative Power which we call God.” Dr. Holmes, our founder, says, “Individuality must be spontaneous; it can never be automatic.”
While we are born with this knowledge, it is not always apparent. We must find it within ourselves and activate its presence through our relationship with our Creator, God. Two challenges lie before us. Find God within and learn the power of your word. This is the aim of September’s message.
The first four sections of Dr. Holmes’ book, The Science of Mind, challenges us to see life as a whole, perfect and complete idea. Holmes’ says, “We see abundance in the Universe. The earth contains untold riches, and the very air is vibrant with power. Why, then, are we weak, poor and afraid?” Like most spiritual teachers, Holmes presses us to see a Universe of potential versus a world of problems. He claims that our, “thoughts and emotions are the use we make—consciously or unconsciously—of this original creative Thing that is the Cause of everything.” The seed of our perfection is hidden within and the sooner we find it, the sooner we can begin to live the life we were created to live.
To help you find the way of this teaching, it is important to know the way we pray. Each talk in this series will be accompanied with a prayer that I call, “The Great Unfolding Prayer.” This is one of those tools that you must be present in order to apply its power. I guarantee it will create the receptivity necessary to find your why and learn your way. Why is why so important?
Because purpose is the directive nature of who you are, guiding you through the amazing opportunities you were created to live. Once you are in dominion of this power within you, you will lose your fear and find the way of love. If you watch us on Live Stream you can email me at JimTurrell@gmail.com and I will send you a copy of the unfolding prayer for the week.
Take advantage of these talks. I promise you meaningful ah has, and wonderful discoveries.
