    Affirming and Welcoming All People

    The Daily Meditation 3.23.2014
    “Affirming and Welcoming All People”
    Rev Martha Quintana, Senior Minister

    There is One Life and that Life is Perfect. This Perfect Life is what I call God. It is the Source of all Being. It is all there is. In its countenance, it is pure Love, Goodness, Abundance, Grace.

    And I am one with it. The moment it enters my mind, I am aligned with it, and all else, unlike It, falls away. I am left standing in Its radiance and Its glory for I am that radiance and glory. I am here by divine appointment and I came to this appointment with everything I need to be successful. As I know this for me, I know this for every single person on this planet. Every person is here by divine appointment and, as such, comes here ready and equipped to have his or her life’s experiences.

    I simply affirm and declare that the doors are wide open in consciousness to welcome and affirm all people who seek the Rio Grande Center for Spiritual Living today. We are a beacon of light for all who wish to know the Truth and who wish to celebrate their own light and their own beings. Healing, community, and a better world happen as a result of this truth and this light. We intuitively know how and have infrastructure to welcome all people to our teaching. The time is now.

    And so I simply give thanks, and know that this gratitude is the wings on which my word flies. It is done.

    And So It Is. Amen.

    Rev Martha Quintana is Senior Minister at the Rio Grande Center For Spiritual Living, Albuquerque, New Mexico.
