The Master Architect

An architect is “a person who designs and guides a plan or undertaking.” An architect doesn’t build anything. He designs it.

Everything is Mind

Some of us might not want to admit it, but how we think means everything to our lives. In our philosophy called the Science of Mind, we do not teach people what to think, but how to think. But, how does one teach someone how to think. This is a good question. We learn how […]

“I Set My Own Tone”

This blog is based on a message I gave at CSL Kaua`i on 10/30/22. As soon as we found out we were forced to move from our home after 4.5 years, we began to look for a new home to rent. There is a consciousness on Kaua`i that it is difficult to find a home […]

Embracing the More

My father stood with a cup of coffee in his hand. He liked the kind with the cup and the saucer. I think it made him feel more affluent drinking from a cup like that. I know, for myself, when I want to feel a little closer to my dad and also feel a feeling […]
