THE ANSWERS ARE WITHIN By Rev William Curtiss

THE ANSWERS ARE WITHIN

“God never asks a question. It is not necessary for God to ask questions because God already knows all the answers. The word for this is “omniscience.” It means that God is the source of all knowledge, wisdom, and intelligence. Since I am one with God, then I have access to all knowledge, wisdom and intelligence. I know what to do, how to do it, and when to do it. I have all the answers. There is Something within me that knows. I trust it totally. It is never wrong; it is always right.

I am filled with confidence because I know, and I know that I know. I never have to worry about the outcome because I am always divinely guided into perfect right decision and perfect right action. I never worry about the “means” because the “end” is already secure. My purpose in life is to express God. God’s purpose in life is to live fully, joyously, creatively and lovingly. I fulfill God’s purpose when I live that way, for I am a vehicle of God’s life. I am the means by which God lives. Accordingly I am endowed with everything necessary to live God’s life: all knowledge, all wisdom, all intelligence.

Knowing this, I now approach each day with excitement and great expectations. Each day is a new opportunity for me to express God, and I have within me an inexhaustible reservoir of resources to do a magnificent job living God’s Life.

I draw upon my inner reservoir of knowledge, wisdom, and intelligence to answer every question and to meet every challenge that presents itself to me today. I have an inexhaustible supply of answers, and they are all right answers. I approach this day in total confidence.”

By Rev William Curtiss – Science of Mind Magazine, December 1992 “Daily Guides to Richer Living”

The power of focusing on the truth of our existence is great. We “pray without ceasing” whether we are aware we are praying or not. Every thought is sending an energetic projection, a blueprint to the Universe about our true beliefs and understanding. Life is a culmination of what each person believes to be possible.

Dive into your beliefs, discover what you believe to be possible. Remember who and what you are and allow this knowing to pull you forward.

Excited to welcome Elizabeth Brandon back to Open Conversations at a special time this Thursday, noon – 1:00 pm Pacific time. Stream the show live on 1150kknw.com or tune in live at KKNW Alternative talk 1150 AM. Join the conversation as Elizabeth Brandon shares what has inspired her successful  30 year career as an introspective painter.

Artist Elizabeth Brandon has shown her paintings for over 30 years in galleries across the US. Her style is primarily influenced by the 17th century Dutch and Spanish painters.  Along with showing her art nationally, Elizabeth painted the cover paintings for Cooks Illustrated from 2000- 2007 and established their familiar look. In the 1970’s, she gained an in-depth knowledge of the principles of light and atmosphere in the Old Masters tradition from her years of study at the Art Students League of New York, where she also met her artist husband, Joseph Sulkowski.

Elizabeth’s work includes still life, florals, and landscapes. Recently she has embarked on a new series based upon her 20 year yoga practice. These paintings are inspired by aspects of healing with a spiritual approach to yoga asanas, breath work, and body knowledge.

Elizabeth’s introspective paintings draw from her passion for the natural world and it’s attributes of light and shadow, with an emphasis on expressing the energetic chakra systems of the body.

She has won numerous awards for her still life and is currently represented at Trailside Galleries in Jackson Hole, WY,  Marine Arts Gallery in Marblehead, MA,  Edgartown Art Gallery in Martha’s Vineyard, and her studio/ gallery  at www.elizabethbrandon.com

Joseph Sulkowski was born in 1951 and knew from the age of five that he would be an artist.

Afterwards, he continued his studies in the techniques of the Old Masters at the Art Students League of New York.

 Joseph refers to his style of painting as “poetic realism”, an interpretive form inspired by the Natural World. The animals, figures and landscapes of the Sporting Life are subjects that continually draw his attention. His trips afield have taken him from the quail hunting plantations of south Georgia and the grouse moors of the Scottish Highlands, to the fly fishing streams of Wyoming and Colorado and the polo fields of England.

Joseph’s paintings are in public and private collections worldwide.

His work is represented by Halcyon Gallery, London,England; The Edgartown Art Gallery in Martha’s Vineyard; Trailside Galleries in Jackson Hole,WY; Marine Arts Gallery in Marblehead,MASS; Dog & Horse Gallery in Charleston, S.C. and Portraits Inc. in New York City.

Prayer for World Peace by: Ernest Holmes

A Prayer for World Peace

by: Ernest Holmes

I know there is but One Mind, which is the mind of God, in which all people live and move and have their being.

I know there is a divine pattern for humanity and within this pattern there is infinite harmony and peace, cooperation, unity and mutual helpfulness.

I know that the mind of humankind, being one with the mind of God, shall discover the method, the way, and the means best fitted to permit the flow of Divine Love between individuals and nations.

Thus harmony, peace, cooperation, unity, and mutual helpfulness are experienced by all.

I know there will be a free interchange of ideas, of cultures, of spiritual concepts, of ethics, of educational systems and scientific discoveries—for all good belongs to all alike.

I know that, because Divine Mind has created us all, we are bound together in one infinite and perfect unity.

I know that all people and all nations will remain individual but unified for the common purpose of promoting peace, happiness, harmony, and prosperity.

I know that deep within each person the Divine Pattern of perfect peace is already implanted.

I now declare that in each person and in leaders of thought everywhere this Divine Pattern moves into action and form, to the end that all nations and all people will live together in peace, harmony, and prosperity forever.

Amen. And so it is.
