Engaging Grace through Ernest Holmes, Metaphysics and the World!
It is an exciting New Year that starts with a new commitment to updating this site on a more regular basis. I continue to investigate those people whom Holmes likely studied or knew during his life. The latest discovery being added to my list of 46 so far is Rev. Dr. Joseph Murphy. His book "Living Without Strain" was sent to me by a friend. It addresses the inner meaning of the Book of Job. Dr. Murphy's books can also be found through Hay House, which publishes his book "Techniques in Prayer Therapy," a topic I've been pondering since reading Dr. William Parker's book "Prayer Can Change Your Life," which chronicles his research in prayer at Redlands University. So much to absorb and practice! Life is quite the adventure!
On your visits to this site, check What's New to find out what's happening with my library and what I'm learning, then there are updates on my Projects and Classes. It's a big leap of faith that all of the things I'm learning about Ernest Holmes, metaphysics and the world might be of interest to others.
I've been a Religious Science practitioner since 1993 and minister since 2003, ordained in 2008. For the past year my attention has been on books that Dr. Holmes probably read as well as every book he wrote. As I add new finds to my library, I'm on the lookout for quotes he used and people he mentioned to discover who and what inspired him to write.
Regarding what inspires me, I love the unfolding story of the Higgs Boson! My favorite metaphyhsical reads are books by authors like Ken Wilber, Brian Greene, Bruce Lipton, Francis Collins, David Hawkins, Gerald Schroeder, Lynne McTaggart and others. Coupled with daily readings on the spiritual side in Science of Mind Magazine and Creative Thought Magazine, favorite authors are Eckhart Tolle, Pema Chodron, Joel Goldsmith, Deepak Chopra and others. My life is full of wonder. I do believe we are on the cusp of a major shift in consciousness in the world. It's a great time to be alive.
I welcome your thoughts and comments and perhaps together we can expand our understanding of these topics. In the meantime, perhaps you might enjoy the following links:
