10 Core Concepts We Teach

1. Oneness

There is only one source for all that exists. We call that source God, Love, Spirit, Universal Mind, and many other synonyms. All that exists is a part of this Universal Oneness; everything is made of the "substance" of God. There is no separation, only Oneness.

2. Triune Nature of Being

This Universal Oneness, God, Love (whatever you choose to call it) has three aspects: Spirit, Soul, and Body. These are aspects of the Oneness, and should not be taken as divisions of the Oneness. These aspects are true of the Universal as well as the Individualized expressions of the Universal. God and the human are expressed in the same way with these aspects of being.

3. Creative Nature

The creative nature of being is thought. Whatever is in the Universal mind as thought comes into expression in form. Again, as there is no separation between God and human, what we think as individualizations of the Infinite comes into expression as the specific form of our lives.

4. Prayer

The activation of the flow of Good into the lives of the human is done through affirmative prayer, also known as spiritual mind treatment. The purpose of spiritual mind treatment is to make clear the path of creation in mind and therefore allow the physical expression to come into form.

5. Wholeness

Everything that exists is part of the infinite wholeness (even those things which seem diametrically in opposition). As human expressions of this Wholeness, we have free will through choice, or volition, to create our experiences of life. The creative principle that allows the experience of freedom, prosperity, and joy, is the same creative principle that can lead us to experience bondage, lack, and misery. The defining factor regarding what we experience is consciousness.

6. Abundance

The nature of the universe is infinite wholeness, therefore there we can never be without. All we need or desire already exists, and exists for everyone. Every person has access to this abundant nature and experiences prosperity at the level of understanding. This is not merit based.

7. A Reciprocal Universe

Everything in form that exists has an invisible counterpart in Mind. That means that all form, all we can conceive of and all we receive is directly correspondent to what we can imagine and believe. This is the use of mind to create the conditions of our lives. Called the Law of Mental Equivalents it is also reflected in the Golden Rule: what do unto others will also be done unto us.

8. Forgiveness

The act of forgiveness frees us to live in the eternal now where there is no place for anger or punishment. In the eternal now there is only Love. True spiritual growth begins when we forgive, this is an essential step to allow us to flourish. A goal in Science of Mind is the complete emancipation from discord of every nature, a goal that can (and will) be attained by all. This begins when forgiveness is rooted in our heart.

9. Immortality

God is life. God is eternal and infinite. Life, then, is eternal and infinite. This is who we are. We are OF God, therefore our lives are eternal and infinite. What we experience as death is simply the transition from this plane of action to the next. Our eternal life continues on the next plane of action when the body on this plane of action has outlived its usefulness.

10. The Christ

Christ is not a person. It is a consciousness and a principle. It is the Universal Divine aspect of all that exists. Each of us is a part of the universal consciousness and principle, and we each have access to partake in its nature to the degree that we recognize this truth of ourselves and lives from that perspective.Oneness

There is only one source for all that exists. We call that source God, Love, Spirit, Universal Mind, and many other synonyms. All that exists is a part of this Universal Oneness; everything is made of the "substance" of God. There is no separation, only Oneness.
