Discovering the Divine Essence: Nurturing Compassion in the Spirit of New Thought

"Actions echo in the divine. What is done unto others reverberates with cosmic significance. Serving others isn't just kindness; it's a sacred reflection, revealing that in serving, we honor God." Michael Corthell In the tapestry of New Thought philosophy, we find a thread that weaves through the very fabric of our human interactions — the belief that the divine essence resides within each individual.
