Sermon: Creative process in action--Dear God!

In this sermon by Rev. Cynthia James, www.milehichurch.org , in Denver, Colorado, you will learn new concepts, new ideas and amazing lessons for living a productive, enlightened and effective life. You may hear Rev James' humorous, insightful and compelling sermon by streaming that website. You will laugh, cry and learn. Mile Hi Church welcomes all faiths, all people and alternative lifestyles.

This week, Reverend Cynthia James presented--" Science of effective living: Dear God ",  a "new' way of thinking about your spiritual life, physical life, relationship and work life. You might name it "ancient wisdom' amalgamated into "new thought'. It stems from the teachings of Dr. Ernest Holmes and his insightful book: The Science of Mind and Spirit.  

For those of you living in Denver, Colorado--you may discover the big white dome on the corner of Garrison and Alameda Ave just off 6th Avenue. Services run at 8: 00, 10:00 and 12:00 every Sunday morning.

Mile Hi's vision statement: Oneness revealed, a world of love, peace and abundance for all.  

Our mission: To serve as a spiritual beacon for personal empowerment and global enlightenment.

Rev. Cynthia James stepped onto the stage wearing a flowing golden robe and swept back hair. She's not your "usual' minister--having been a movie and TV star on such programs as "Days of Our Lives" and "MacGyver". Today, she inspires and counsels a growing congregation of 15,000 at Mile Hi Church.  

"My message this morning," she said, "has to do with what kids say and write when they address God. Here are a few examples: "Dear God, thank you for my baby brother, but I wanted a puppy!"

"Dear God, I am an American, what are you?"

"Dear God, are you really invisible or is it a trick?"

"Dear God, I find it very hard for you to love everybody in the world. I only have four in my family and it's nearly impossible!"

Sitting up front, I watched Rev. James' demeanor cascade from smirks, to grins, to chuckling to herself. She used her hands and arms dynamically to emphasize her points to the congregation. One second--she stood tall, and the next--she looked right at me with intensity and a moment later, at the whole front section of listeners. She encouraged, enthralled and engaged.

On the large screen power point, Rev. James presented a pyramid that illustrated the four levels of her dynamic understanding of the "Kingdom of Consciousness."

"Let's talk about the four levels of the "Kingdom of Consciousness", she said. "Let's start off at the foundation with "To Me". Do you remember Jim Morrison of the Doors, Janis Joplin, Jimmy Hendrix - they died at 28, 27, 27 years of age."

They died early because they could not grasp their inherent wholeness, their emerging humanity. They became victims, suppressing their pain. Each stuffed themselves with drugs, extremes of behavior, finally overdoses. Each would be living today had they recognized their worth.

The central victimizing message of "To Me' consciousness: life is happening to me! I am in pain. I seek and find means to numb my feelings. Food, busy-ness, incompatible relationships, sex, and compulsive buying portray the addictions of numbing. The novelist Aldous Huxley wrote: The Doors of Perception in which he recapped a mescaline drug trip. He explained the emotional dilemma we all face via perceptions.
