MAY MINISTER'S MESSAGE: Spiritual Guidance & Personal Responsibility
One time, when I was quite new to the Science of Mind, I had an experience that taught me a very valuable lesson about personal responsibility as applied to receiving spiritual guidance. I was looking fora place to rent at that time; and as a college student with a dog and a cat, it wasn't proving to be an easy task. One night I had a dream and saw myself and my furry companions in a house. I didn't remember anything else about the dream. The next day I was scheduled to look at another rental, and as I was being shown the house, lo and behold, it was the house in my dream! The house was in a very bad part of Tucson, which made me feel uneasy, but I just knew that the dream was telling me to rent this place - so I did! Several months went by and one night, coming home from a Science of Mind class, I came home to a completely emptied-out house! I had been robbed even of my clothing, my pots & pans - everything! At that moment, like a scroll rolling out, I saw the dream, my own unease with the neighborhood, my assumption about what the dream was telling me, and I understood that it was a dream of foretelling a possible outcome, not necessarily instruction on what to do!
This month's topic centers on receiving spiritual guidance, taking personal responsibility for what we do with it and the liminal space between receiving and understanding what our higher knowing is offering to us. Fun stuff!
By the way, there was a happy ending to my story. When my spiritual community in Tucson found out what had happened, they rallied around and I was showered with money, clothing, pots & pans and so much love.
Side note - don't miss the opportunity to see the Tibetan monks who will be visiting our Center on May 15-17 and offering a variety of programs.
