October 2009 - The Spirit of Oz
Loved by children of all ages, the classic movie The Wizard of Oz offers some profound spiritual teachings, completely aligned with those of Science of Mind/New Thought. Join us this month as we travel down the Yellow Brick Road to discover the Spirit of Oz.
Talk 1 - Over the Rainbow!
The greatest gift with which we are endowed (after Life itself) is the gift of choice. And with our choices come natural results or consequences. We’ll begin our journey with Dorothy as we explore the consequences of her -- and our -- choices.
Talk 2 - If I Only Had a Brain
The Scarecrow sought a brain; the Tin Man a heart. Yet despite their perceived lack, the Scarecrow had all the great ideas, and the Tin Man loved unconditionally. Could it be that we are all spiritually supplied with everything we need from the beginning whether we know it or not?
Talk 3 - Hold Tight to Those Ruby Slippers
We are born with a Divine Spark, which no one can take away. Dorothy’s ruby slippers are a radiant symbol of the inner spark of infinite potential for goodness and greatness that is within us all.
Talk 4 - There Really Is No Place Like Home
T.S. Eliot once wrote: “We shall not cease from exploration and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and to know the place for the first time.” Dorothy learned this profound spiritual Truth. As we conclude The Spirit of Oz, so will we.
