Recently, when I attended the *Inner Heart Center in Peoria, Arizona, Rev. Cathy Corbin-Mannino, the co-minister, gave a very inspiring talk. In it she gave us a word that was coined by the late Rev. Jack Boland, who was the minister of The Today Church in Warren, Michigan. The word is: APOCATASTASIS. It means: Something wonderful is happening!
This is a great word for the New Year, or anytime. With all the challenges of the past year or two, I believe it is time to upgrade our thinking, rather than things are seemingly falling apart, to know that something wonderful is happening.
In your personal life, if things have not been as great as you would like, if your plans have seemed to go awry, or you haven’t made as much progress as you had hoped for, now is the time to declare: APOCATASTASIS!
Paul said, “Whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is gracious . . . think on these things.” We might add to that, “Whatever is positive and uplifting.” In other words to refuse to entertain anything except that which adds significantly to our quality of life. A positive, optimistic attitude that springs from a consciousness of God really knows: APOCATASTASIS – Something wonderful is happening!
Print this word in large letters and place where you will see it often. Let it remind you that regardless of appearances, something wonderful really is happening. It is happening in you. Believe it and you will see it – Lovingly, Rev. John
*Inner Heart Center is a New Thought/Unity Spiritual Community. Rev. Cynthia Ragsdale and Rev. Cathy Corbin-Mannino are the ministers. I attend there regularly. Learn more about Inner Heart Center at: www.InnerHeartCenter.org.

Bytes of Wisdom. . .
We generate our own environment. We get exactly what we deserve. How can we resent a life we’ve created ourselves? Who’s to blame, who’s to credit but us? Who can change it, anytime we wish, but us? – Richard Bach
I have become my own version of an optimist. If I can’t make it through one door, I’ll go through another door–or I’ll make a door. Something terrific will come no matter how dark the present. – Joan Rivers
Be as upbeat as you can be. The basic success orientation is having an optimistic attitude. – John DePasquale
A pessimist sees only the dark side of the clouds, and mopes; a philosopher sees both sides and shrugs; an optimist doesn’t see the clouds at all–he’s walking on them. – D. O. Glynn
A Little Humor. . .
Whack! Right on the head with a rolled-up magazine! “What was that for?” the husband shouts.
“That,” his wife says, “was for the piece of paper I found – with the name Laurie Sue on it.”
“But, dear,” he says, “that was just the name of a horse I bet on when I went to the track.”
“Okay,” she says. “I’ll let it go . . . this time.”
Two weeks later – Whack!
“Now what?” he wails.
“Your horse just called. – Jody L. Rohlena
