Creative Process - Sabbath
We've worked through the steps represented by the first six days of the creation process, and now it's time to rest from "efforting". This is the time for trust, continuing our focus on creating our good. We live our lives in alignment with the choices we're making, and we allow ourselves to be still and know. And, by the way, the quote referenced in the beginning is NOT from Mark Twain...
Creative Process - Love and Wisdom
With faith, with clarity, with understanding and will, we align our thinking and feeling natures. We make our eye "single", and remember to focus on Wholeness.
Creative Process - Understanding and Will
As we move through the creative process, it's vital that we understand and gain clarity around precisely what it is we're working toward. Once we have fuller understanding, we exercise our will to do what we must do. We must remain aligned in consciousness with our highest intentions.
Creative Process - Imagine Good
We cannot know, really, "how" something comes out of the seeming "nothing", but it does. We practice with the little things, and we work to become one who knows how to demonstrate. We engage head and heart, remember our power of Power, and bring forth that which we claim. Imagine...
Creative Process - Your Center of Faith
We must believe it is possible... whatever "it" is! We recognize that the Source of Everything is creative, and since we are expressions of that, we must also be creative. What do we believe we can create? We can only beginwhere we are, and we can only demonstrate or create what we believe we can create. Are you creating lack? Limitation? Inclusion? Peace? the only limitation is our belief.
In the Beginning...
We are an integral part of the Creative Process. If we are "made in the image and the likeness" of the Life-Force of the Universe (and we are), then we must be inherently creative. In fact we are always creating. Our work is to learn how to cooperate intelligently with that process.
We have a tendency to think we have to earn our freedom, or somehow prove our worthiness. The Truth is, we are already free. We already have all we need. Our human mind want to keep looking here, there, everywhere, but that only keeps us looking. It is time to begin living the freedom which is already ours.
I Believe ... Help My Unbelief!
Faith can be tricky! We believe, and we're very firm in our belief... until we're not. We can beat ourselves up about our lack of faith, or we can recognize when we need a bridge to help us take the necessary leap to our next level of trust. NOTE: Audio quality isn't great on this one...
Father's Day - Doing the Best We Can
As with Mother's Day, there's a huge range of emotions people experience around Father's Day. We acknowledge that some of us had the world's greatest dads, and others... well, not so much. Looking to the principle behind fathers, we remember that fathers represent that which can tell Truth from error, and that as we understand better, we can do better. And... everyone, fathers, mothers, families, friends, politicians, EVERYONE is always doing the best they can.
Prescription for Peace: Relax, Release, Praise, Repeat
Sometimes we get too wrapped up in the day-to-day troubles, and start making things way more complicated than they need to be. Today we revisit very basic Unity tools: relaxation, denials - release, praise - affirmations, and through the continued repetition of these things, we craft our spiritual practice.
