Practical Spirituality: the Creative Connection

By Rev. Marla Sanderson

The Science of Mind teaches us that we create our reality with our thoughts and that there is an Infinite Creative Intelligence within us that knows all. We can tap into that intelligence and be guided by its wisdom. When there are decisions and choices to make, this same Power is full of ideas and solutions. We only need to tune in to it.

So it’s no wonder when I learned to apply the Science of Mind techniques and meditate regularly, I became eager to get out of my boring job and on to a more exciting life.

It wasn’t long before an opportunity came to join an unusual business endeavor, so I quit my job and never looked back. Things weren’t always easy, and finances were unstable, but the whole situation was so rewarding and exciting that none of that mattered. Stark terror was a small price to pay for such freedom and happiness.

Fortunately, the workshops we were teaching gave us tools to deal with fears as they came up, and that meant becoming experts in what we taught. As they say, you teach best what you most need to learn.

Love and fun were a big part of the teaching, so we’d often take a Frisbee break on the office building lawn across the street. We sympathized with the employees who watched from their windows as we played in the sunshine. There, but for a choice, sits me.
Business is a great way to discover new abilities, and if your budget is tight you quickly learn to write copy, design brochures and fliers, provide customer service, and market your product. You also get to take responsibility for whatever happens and make adjustments.
Once you learn to access that Creative Intelligence, you have a world of options. You become master of your life, and you get to make your own choices. You can set your own priorities, pursue your dreams, and enjoy the trip. You can stretch and grow all the way to the bank, and if one thing doesn’t work, you can do it better or differently. Whether life gives you opportunities or challenges, you can approach them with courage, confidence and a creative mind-set.

You are never alone when you exercise your Creative Connection. You are, in fact, tapping into the ONENESS that is everything.
