December, a Transitional Month, Occupied with Stories, Metaphor, & Tradition

By Dr. Jim Turrell on Nov 29, 2017 at 12:44 AM

The willingness to become ourselves, and the obstacles we encounter, speaks to why our teaching informs and inspires a way out of the confusion created by this transitional month.


The Four Aims of Life: Alignment, Initiative, Meaning, and Self-Realization

By Dr. Jim Turrell on Oct 31, 2017 at 04:57 AM

The aim of life is not always known. There are times when the mark we seek to make in this world is not available for our aim. In other words, life finds a way to conceal our human ambition and rob us of our driven nature. The world, however, is not where we come from and it is not where we are going too. The Divine Nature of life would step in and remind us that our first obligation to life is to connect with the Divine and pull our attention to the miracle of the moment—the now.


Discover the Freedom of Spiritual Economics

By Dr. Jim Turrell on Oct 02, 2017 at 06:54 PM

When we talk about prosperity in our Science, we mean how the Principle of Prosperity functions as a Spiritual Law. There is a lot of confusion around the subject of prosperity because the majority of people who study prosperity do not study it as a law. Those who study prosperity, study it as a skill set that once mastered will lead to the accumulation of wealth. For example, if you learn how to buy low and sell high in real estate or the stock market, you can accumulate wealth. If you can develop the skill of investing, you can accumulate wealth.
I am not in disagreement with any of these skills. However, they have nothing to do with the Law of Prosperity.


If You Want to be Free, Come Study With Me

By Dr. Jim Turrell on Aug 30, 2017 at 11:58 PM

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.


Finding the Rhythm and Soul of Creation

By Dr. Jim Turrell on Aug 01, 2017 at 05:49 PM

Starting Sunday, August 6, I will be giving a series of talks on the application of our Spiritual Cause and Effect approach to centering your life rhythmically and using your Soul artistically to create and live a life that is inspired, original, and authentic.


The Principles of Successful Living

By Dr. Jim Turrell on Jun 27, 2017 at 09:52 PM

Although I do not focus on success, I realize it is an important part of what most feel is an important goal. No one wants to be a failure, but success is not about achievement. Success is not a goal, it is a conscious attitude that propels my momentum and keeps me focused on my growth and unfoldment. The Science of Mind is a consciousness that says, “…we are surrounded by a Universal Mind, into which we think.” This Mind, which is also the Law of Creation automatically, creates whatever we think into it. This creation, however, is not something we take. It is something we BECOME.


If Life is a Game, Do You Know How to Play It?

By Dr. Jim Turrell on May 12, 2017 at 08:53 PM

Life is a constant discovery of how love functions and creates our good. In tribute to this idea, I will be giving a series of six talks, starting today on May 14th, based on a classic book in our lexicon of favorites by Florence Scovel Shinn, The Game of Life and How to Play It. Bob Groux, who has been reading this book asked if I was familiar with it. It’s been a long time since I read it, but I was so glad Bob reminded me of how brilliant Ms. Shinn was in sharing her wisdom.


How to be 25% Richer by the End of 2017

By Dr. Jim Turrell on Apr 25, 2017 at 12:07 AM

I am starting a new series of talks on The Basics of a Cause and Effect Life, applying it to prosperity, relationships, and health. Each Sunday I will build the Cause and Effect Model so you can see exactly where life might be breaking down or distracting you; with unnecessary conditions and circumstances. The key is in knowing where you have the power and how to use it to change the way you think, feel, live and act.


Seven Thousand Ways to Listen

By Dr. Jim Turrell on Feb 25, 2017 at 05:57 PM

I am excited to share new ideas from a book on listening by Mark Nepo. Mark’s simple yet poetic style helps to bypass the egocentric efforts employed through our intellects that struggle to find a way through our conditions and circumstances. Instead, Mark’s book opens doors to that mysterious connection to the sacred that releases the pressure of humanized thought and helps to close the sense of separation responsible for our fear and doubt.


How to Explain the Universe

By Dr. Jim Turrell on Jan 31, 2017 at 06:25 PM

How do you explain the Universe, God, and your relationship to the Eternal? Deepak Chopra has written another book and this time he has ventured into the world of science; and has come under attack by scientists who have accused him of mixing spirituality with science.
