Love & Judgment

Two views of one Reality: a new perspective founded on the teachings of Jesus and New Thought principles


What do you see when you take a second look? Be it Oneness or Duality, our view of reality determines our consciousness and our experience of Life and the living. If you love, you need not judge.

Affirmative Prayer

Affirming the Truth of one's Self, while accepting the facts of every facet of one's life.

Change Your Mind

The practice of affirmative prayer is predicated on a single premise: Perfection. With samples and examples, this book replaces the old idea that nobody is perfect with a new thought.

Creative Thinking

New Thoughts on consciousness, conscious thinking and being conscientious.


Our self-concepts are the seeds of thought we sow, and then reap as our experience of Life. Gather some new thoughts on an old analogy.
