03/01/2020 Lent 1: I AM
We begin our Lenten Practice by grounding ourselves in the Truth of What We Are, which is Divine. We are the Infinite expressing at the point we are. You are the Infinite at the point you are, and I AM the Infinite at the point I Am. We each share this sacred identity, and it is only by claiming this Truth that we will fully express our potential.

At some point, we must make the commitment to actually practice the tools which will help us to change our lives. Learning about these things is good, but as our fifth Unity principle states: It is not enough to know Truth, we must actually live the Truth we know. It's not a race or a competition, and we'll each learn to work with these things in the ways that work best for us. But we MUST practice. We MUST commit. We MUST be willing to do the work.
01/26/2002 Basics 4: Words Have Power
Have you ever really listened to yourself? Do you believe that your words are powerful? We've all been on the receiving end of hurtful words, and we've all been built up by loving words. Words are the way we communicate with others and with ourselves, through our thoughts. Words are important!
01/19/2020 Basics 3: Working With Thoughts and Intention
This is where we start actually working with our thoughts. Denials and affirmations are frequently the very first tool that we use to edit and become more mindful of our thoughts. Desire, intention, and belief are all coming into play when we begin practicing the use of denials and affirmations.
01/12/2020 Basics 2: Thoughts Are Things
We are not victims of our thoughts! We have the ability to work with our thoughts. And since life is always lived from the perspective of our thoughts and beliefs, this ability to transform our thoughts can actually allow us to tranform our lives through changing those thoughts.

There is a Truth within the story, and in New Thought, our interpretation of the Christmas Story is focused on the birth of the awareness of the DIvine Presence within each one of us.
