After reading the continuing posts from L M about how Science of Mind is heresey and that Im doomed for living by its principals I now feel the need to share with my readers what SOM says about itself. And as far as LM repaeting that I think I am a God he is just twisting my words into something that is only a partial truth as to what I did say.Myself and SOM followers do believe that ALL living forms are an incarnation of God's Spirit and that we ALL use the ONE MIND of God in out expression as human beings on earth. LM tries tomake it sound like I am an ego driven person who is trying to deceive others inot believing I am God and that anything I say is TRUTH. I will say that anything I believe true is MT TRUTH and mine only. That doesnt mean I feell you or anyone else should have to follow my truth to find salvation and peace of mind. LM seems intent on arguing anything I print so as to justify his beliefs in his own mind. I know I could easily just delete his comments but I choose to let him speak his words and I encourge him to continue to live by his faitha nd truth as long as it brings him peace of mind and satisfaction.DO I agree with LM's beliefs? NO NO NO I dont. I studied the religious dogmas along with many other writings since I am not one sighted enough to beleiive that the Bible is the Only book written that has merit to it. While LM in his own words said anything written by anyone who does not believe the way he does is not worth the paper it is printed on. Dont take my word for that just look at one of his comments under my entry THE LARGER LOVES. Ifyou have a moment take a look at he poem and see what you think about it. Does it have any merit? I truly believe it does but according to LM it doesnt because it came from a SOM reader and contribitor.How anybody can say this poem doesnt have merit is way beyond me. I just dont get it. Also Id like to say that LM just keeps on saying I believe I or we can do ANYTHING we want, well thats taking my words out of context.Of course we can do what we want to do. But that doesnt mean I do things that hurt other people, atleast not on purpose.By living to my own personal standards that I have developed over the years by reading SOM, the BIble, and many many other teachings I strive to accept everybody as they are without condemnation(DO I judge others as LM is quick to point out? Yes I do but I dont condemn them for their beliefs and I never tell them they are WRONG in their beliefs and as long as they are not hurting anyone else I have no problem with the way they are living their life.Another thing Id like to clear up is that even tho I do ascribe to SOM this blog is not intended to bring anyone to accept this teaching.Maybe I have described my blog in the wrong words I dunno.My only reason is that I want to share my philosophy with Anyone who is looking for ways to enhance their spiritua growth.Im not trying to convert anybody to anything!! Just sharing because in the past I have heard from people who have told me they were able to use some of my writings to help them find inner peace and contentment. And for me that is reason enough to continue. As Ralph Waldo Emerson once said and I paraphrase--"To know that even one life has breathed easier because you wer here is to have succeeded." In one of LM's comments he mentioned that I had almost caused a friend of his to go down the wrong path. I think I know who he is talking about and all I did was offer to answer any questions she had as to my philosophy. She emailed me a couple of tiems and I answered with sincerity and truth but after the 2nd email she never wrote again. So therefore I just removed her name from my address book and never wrote her again. But if she ever does change her mind and gets past the "help" LM has given her and wants to know more about me all she has to do is write.Now if I was trying to convert people do you think I would have just dropped it that quick?But one reason I feel for this lady is that I knkow the "religion" she is a part of does make her feel guilty because she told me as much.And personally I feel any religion or any truth that teaches any kind of fear or wrath or condemnation isnt worth the paper it is written on to borrow a phrase from my friend LM. Any way with all that having been said I would say to anyone who feels the desire to see what Science fo Mind is all about is to just go to their web page and check it out for yourself.Again I dont see how anyone can find fault with a way f life that teaches love is in all and is all.Now I am posting SOM's What We Believe so maybe it can clear up exactly what it is.
