The Principles of Successful Living revisited

By Dr. Jim Turrell on Mar 30, 2018

The month of April will be a spiritual adventure created to align your mind with God’s Mind. We start with the premise that perfect God moves and has Its being in the perfection the Divine creates—that is you! This establishes our course and keeps our minds centered on God’s presence within our own presence. This also grounds us in what Ernest Holmes called, “The Principles of Successful Living.” Our first rule? Bring Heaven on Earth! This is the theme for Easter 2018, and it is all about going deeper into the sacred idea of trusting the life God creates for us to live and learning how to raise, praise, and gather unto us a consciousness of Love.


Spirit, Soul, and Body: How Science of Mind is Different from other Religions

By Dr. Jim Turrell on Jan 30, 2018

These three labels define how we think about God and our place in the eternal nature of the Universe. While we speak about these terms, we do not always define how they differ from other religions. This can be confusing because people think they have a Spirit and a Soul that is unique to them. They can also believe that their Spirit and Soul may not be a good or powerful than other Spirits or Souls. This is not possible because there is only one Spirit and Soul and each person occupies and uses that amount of Spirit and Soul that they contain. This means that you have as much Spirit as you have the consciousness to contain and utilize.


Learning How to Brave the Wilderness, based on Brene Brown's New Book

By Dr. Jim Turrell on Jan 05, 2018

January is the month of new beginnings. It is a spiritual excuse to re-frame and reshape our sense of life, prosperity, and peace. Every one of us live in a Universe that is Whole, Perfect and Complete. No need to reinvent your life. Simply live it where you found it and walk into the new view of life and goodness.


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

By Dr. Jim Turrell on Nov 29, 2017

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

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 momentthe now.


Discover the Freedom of Spiritual Economics

By Dr. Jim Turrell on Oct 02, 2017

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

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

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

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

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. Its 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.
