The spell of illusion can sometimes drive us crazy. Staying rooted in our Spiritual Principles combats our craziness. Practices such as meditation, Spiritual Mind Treatment, and Self-Awareness – especially working with a Practitioner – help us stay centered as we deal with life. Without a strong spiritual practice, we can get caught up in the latest cause for alarm and calls to extreme action. There are always news stories blaring outrage at us. When we take the time to stand in Truth – we will see past the frenzy, the illusions, the thunder and lightning, to the essence of a situation. Then we are able to create effective solutions. Then we are able to apply the Creative Process in life-enhancing ways.
