December Idea of the Month

I've asked for comments and thoughts on this month's Idea of the Month, as well as the feature article in the monthly Conscious Kernels eNewsletter.
(if you would like to sign up for the free monthly newsetter, click here.)

The subject: Materialism in this season of holiday gift giving. Also giving and receiving. I personally have never seen so many ads for sales etc. as I have seen this year. At least they waited until Thanksgiving for the onslaught. There is nothing worse than seeing Christmas stuff before Halloween.

So if you have read my Idea of the Month or the featured article, you will know that I put forth the argument that there is no such thing as what we call "Materialism" and its negative connotations.

If you look at things from a spiritual perspective, there is only the One. The one includes everything, including what we call material possessions. Material things are only the physical manifestation of spiritual ideas, thoughts, consciousness.

So if we stay in that mindset of spiritual vs. material, we are not understanding the very nature of God, Spirit, the Universe or how it works.

To say that these two concepts are opposed to each other is to not know the nature of Spirit. Spirit must express as physical things.

But enough from me. You know where Ernest Holmes and I stand.

What do you think? Respond to this post.
