NEW THOUGHT TEACHES US :
• HOW TO HEAL the ills caused by belief in separation
• HOW TO EVOLVE from fear based religion
• HOW TO ENRICH RELATIONSHIPS
• HOW TO USE MIND to create ones' choice of experiences
• HOW TO UNDERSTAND the world and its appearances
• HOW TO EXPRESS the qualities of God
NEW THOUGHT - THE PREMISE
• GOD IS REAL: THE ONE and only power in the Universe, the original cause and present expressing AS every individual human . God's presence is everywhere all the time. We experienced God as Love, Energy, Wisdom, Substance and Mind.
• MIND IS CREATIVE: Our thought and belief directs the Power to create the qualities in our lives. Our (false) belief in separation has caused us to experience a world lacking in the elements for our happiness and unfoldment. With careful thinking and looking inward (to Spirit) for direction and strength, and consenting to let God flow through us, we can handle any situation, reach any goal.
THE HEART of the NEW THOUGHT teaching:
• Remembering God, as the Reality within us, and making It a constant in all our activity, is the heart of our spiritual practice and the key to enriching our lives. The world around us gives out ‘separating’ experiences and messages that, if not managed with spiritual understanding, make life seem hard, even hopeless at times.
• A sound spiritual consciousness and a healthy core belief about God are created and nurtured through classes and study groups and regularly experiencing the Sunday Celebrations at the Life Enrichment Centre. It is through our lives that the presence of God is healing and empowering, building healthy relationships and co-creating a peaceful world.
