Center for Spiritual Living™ Denver is a face, a place and a space for love, located in the heart of Denver. Here you will learn spiritual tools to transform your personal life and help make the world a better place.
We are an inclusive, affirmative spiritual center, teaching spiritual principles compatible with most core aspects of the world religions. We respect other spiritual paths and are anchored in the teachings of Science of Mind and Spirit.
Science of Mind and Spirit is a way of life that honors all paths to God and helps people to discover a personal relationship with God. When God is the focus of our spirituality, then other areas of our lives fall into place—we are happier, we can do more for others, be better stewards of the Earth, and bring peace and harmony to the world.
What We Believe
Greetings to you in the newness of 2015. In the rhythm of our lives, at this time of year, we are urged to consider reviewing our life and beginning anew. Some of us will take new action, corrective action, or repeat action towards that which we desire or know is good for us. This is a great idea.
How wonderful this is, the process of assessing, letting go and beginning anew. You may know what’s coming next from me here.... And yes, the process of assessing, letting go and beginning anew is available to us all the time, every moment of every day, every day of the year, throughout all time.
Illumined teacher Eckhart Tolle says this, “Nothing ever happened in the past; it happened in the Now. Nothing will ever happen in the future; it will happen in the Now" and the founder of Science of Mind and Spirit, Ernest Holmes, states, “the Universe exists in the Eternal Now, each
moment complete and perfect within itself.” How do we experience this Eternal Now? We enter the silence. And then we enter the silence again... And then again. We invite the present moment to connect with us and anticipate the unifying of our mind, body and spirit. And the benefits of cultivating our connection with the present moment are experienced in our everyday walk in the world.
What are you thinking about for 2015? What do you want to let go of? What are you willing to step into further toward your heart’s desire? I trust that you give yourself a gracious action plan and that in that action plan, you include the inaction of courting the Presence, the present moment, the Eternal Now. All that you seek is prepared for you already.
Many blessings, Rev. Mary Jo
Another year has gone by but the spiritual journey continues. In the past year I have come to the conclusion that the deepest desire one has is to really, really, really feel and know my oneness with the Source, God, Universe, whatever I call it. When that deep realization occurs that is when I can truly co-create. So, here is the intention I have set for the new year:
This I Pray
Father/Mother God this I pray
Show me now Your Infinite Way
Grant my mind the quiet Peace
All turmoil now to cease.
Grant my heart to fill with love,
My feet to move with measured step,
My hands to provide all the help,
My words to comfort a grieving self.
Beloved Lord that creates All
Bring my soul to Thy hallowed hall
The Light that is Thine
Within me now, let it shine.
When worldly cares bind me still
Let me know Thy divine Will.
Guide my journey with Wisdom true
That I may walk this earth
Trusting the Spirit that is You.
Father/Mother God let my eyes see
My ears to hear and heart to feel
That in my Self, I am One with Thee.
