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".
06/24/2018 - Tolerance and Compassion for EVERYONE
No matter what other folks may think of us, or how much we may dislike their politics or their actions, we must not place them outside of our love and compassion. No matter how intolerant others are of us, returning intolerance or hatred for the intolerance or hatred directed at us only increases the amount of hatred and intolerance in the world. We are responsible for our contrbution to the collective consciousness of humankind. (Please note: Audio is not great on this one.)
06/17/2018 Righteousness - Right Thinking
It's Father's Day, and we're told Joseph was "a righteous man". Our focus from Myrtle this week is indeed, righteousness, which she explains as "right thinking".
06/10/2018 Unfolding the Departments of Mind, Part 2
In addition to our journey with Myrtle Fillmore, some "things that go without saying" actually needed to be said. We do live in the material world, even if it's not "Real" in the sense that Myrtle uses the word. We affect one another, we are responsible for our actions, for our words, and for taking care of each other.
06/03/2018 Unfolding the Departments of Mind
This week, we look at purpose from Myrtle Fillmore's point of view. According to her, our purpose is to express the creations of God which we are. We are to "unfold the many departments of mind", which will allow us to discern what is best for us to do. (PLEASE NOTE: Audio quality is not great this week)
05/27/2017 Introducing Myrtle
Uniy co-founder Myrtle Fillmore had the healing realization that she was a child of God, and therefore could not inherit sickness. It took her a couple of years to completely recover from the tubercular condition which had been determined to terminal, and lived many, many more years. During that second half of her life, Myrtle, along with her husband Charles, started the Unity movement, which is based on the awareness of the indwelling Christ, and the power of prayer. Today we start to get an idea of who she was, and what she believed.
05/20/2018 Knowing That You Know, and Being Truth
Petacost is the day we celebrate the "arrival" of the Holy Spirit into consciousness by Jesus' apostles. When you read the story, they were pretty clueless. Jesus knew that unless and until he went away, they wouldn't come into their own power. So he gave them instructions, they followed those instructions, and - oh my goodness! - they DID indeed come into their power. We can (and must) do the same thing.
05/13/2018 Mother's Day- Birthing Creativity
There's such a range of emotions around Mother's Day... some idolize their moms, other's find it hard to forgive their mothers' cluelessness. Wherever we are on that spectrum, it's important to remember that the "mothering" spirit is within each of us, regardless of gender, and that we have within us the ability (and the urge) to create. We are the ones who will evolve the world; let's choose to do so lovingly.
05/06/2018 - I Am Inspired
We always have the option to claim the inspiration of Divine Wisdom, because It resides within us. The only trick involved is remembering!
