Context for Month: This month we take the opportunity to revisit our spiritual principles using them as a launching pad for a fuller expression of the Vision. We are pulled forward by the Vision and this is an opportunity to re-Vision, refine (get clearer), and recommit to the Vision. We explore more deeply how living from kingdom 3 consciousness (aka stage 3 of spiritual development) advances us toward more lived experiences of Freedom.

(7/4) Pulled by Vision: We Hold These Truths… Unity is the song of life; it is the grand theme underlying the rich variations that exist throughout the cosmos. Whatever we see, whatever we experience, is only a manifestation of this eternal oneness. – Sherry Evans
Week’s Affirmation: I am the Spiritual and moral arc of the Universe. 
Additionally: We’ll recognize our July birthdays and share coffee and conversation and mind building synthesis games after service. 

(7/11) Is Your Commitment Greater Than Your Resistance? One of the greatest stumbling blocks in any man’s spiritual advancement is dishonesty; the refusal to honestly face an idea if that idea happens not to please him.  This comes in part from the human tendency to take the line of least resistance, whether it be in our physical endeavors or in the operation of our mind.  Confronted with an idea that repudiates one we have held for years, we go far out of our way, entirely around the idea, to keep from being compelled to analyze and possibly to absorb it. Our cry is: “I do not like to believe that!” Back of this is the fear that an idea may be forced into our consciousness which will uncover to us our own responsibility. – Ernest Holmes, It’s Up to You
Week’s Affirmation: I commit to the highest vision for my life. 

(7/18) Free Your Mind and the Rest Will Follow. The recognition of the presence of God or Good…automatically wipes out any picture of undesirable conditions, for the Spirit of God is a law of elimination and obliteration to everything unlike Itself! – SOM p. 186.4
Week’s Affirmation: I allow Spirit to fill me to overflow revealing Divine Truth. 

(7/25) Stayed! “I woke up this morning with my mind stayed on spirit!” We are in the Water of Infinite Life as the fish is in the ocean…The Spirit of Life is all around us. It flows through us. It permeates everything. – Ernest Holmes, This Thing Called Life
Week’s Affirmation: Divine Spirit is powerfully flowing as me.
