09/02/2018 Myrtle Fillmore on Prayer- Don't Send Them Out!

08/26/2018 Square Pegs and Round Holes
We each have work to do in the world; some of that work looks like work, and some of it is simply doing whatever it is that makes your soul sing. Myrtle Fillmore's suggestion was that if we feel like square pegs in round holes, we need to do whatever we need to do to find our proper place- it's not good to "rattle around". Many of us have put off doing those things we feel especially drawn to... if not now, when?
08/19/2018 Be Still... and Forgive
This week, our focus from Unity co-founder Myrtle Fillmore revolves around forgiveness. It's not optional. We all know we need to forgive, but the how-to can be difficult. One thing we can each do is simply bring willingness to stillness.We may need to do it over, and over, and over again, but it really is necessary, and ultimately our practice of stillness and willingness will bear fruit.
08/12/2018 Helping Others
As we continue looking at our spiritual path with wisdom shared by Unity co-founder Myrtle Fillmore, we are reminded that the best way we can help others is to know their Divinity. If we consider them to be "evil" or "undesireable", we only increase our own misery, and keep them in their state of error. If we know the very best about them, we call that innate Good forth.
08/05/2018 Cooperation and Commitment
Just as parents need to teach their children how to rely on their own abilities and move confidently into adulthood, we must learn to go within, cultivate our Divine abilities, and move confidently in the world with the awareness of Wholeness. This confidence doesn't come from just thinking about Spirit, or simply reading books and learning "about" our Divine identity. we are required to practice, to devote ourselves to our spiritual path, and cooperate with the Infinite Wisdom within.

07/22/2018 - Spirit Is In This Place
While it's fairly easy to feel the Omnipresence of Spirit when we're in our center, surrounded by the friends and music and other things which support our spiritual growth, sometimes we can lose that feeling as we go about our day-to-day lives. Our newest Licensed Unity Teacher, Susan Smith, shares some of the tools and practices which can help us maintain that awareness, no matter what.

07/08/2017 - Freedom From Fear
With the 4gh of July falling mid-week, we find ourselves with two weeks of focusing on freedom! Last week we looked at the choice to release ourselves from the non-productive thinking which has been holding us in bondage. This week, our work is to overcome fear. This is possible only through remembering that there is only One Power in the Universe. The how-to is contained in a series of practices.
07/01/2018 - A New Year- Anytime You Choose
As we continue to look at the wisdom of Unity co-founder Myrtle Fillmore, we are reminded by her that we may choose at any moment to move into a fuller expression of the Christ within each of us. At any moment, we could choose to let go of the things which hold us back. As the apostle, Paul, said we can transform our lives in the twinkling of an eye, "through the renewing of our minds".
