Prosperity's 7th Commandment - Do Not Adulterate Your Good
10-29-17 One of our Rev. Nita's favorite names for God is "Good Without Opposite". To cultivate an abundant life, we need to remain focused on that- when we start "seeing" things we consider to be the opposite of Good, we dilute our Good.
Prosperity's Sixth Commandment - Keep Your Good in Circulation
10-22-17: If we wish to live abundantly, we must remain in the flow of circulation which is Life. The breath, the blood system, rivers, lakes, oceans, leaves... everyhing which is alive must have a way of circulating Life.
Prosperity's Fifth Commandment - Honor All Channels of Good
10/15/2017 We do not live this life alone, and we must learn to live ethically and demonstrate integrity. We must honor those who help us in life: such as our parents who gave us life, and be willing to recognize and honor all of the obligations in life.
Prosperity's Fourth Commandment
10/08/2017 In the week following yet another instance of terrible violence, this time the shootings in Las Vegas, Rev. Nita explores how we are to respond, remembering to love and to show compassion. The spiritual path is not an easy one, and this was not an easy week.
Prosperity's Third Commandment
In this third lesson, we look at "Speak No Word of Limitation", and how important it is to honor our sacred name, I AM. We are frequently quite lazy in the words we speak, and tend to not really pay attention to ourselves. Refraining from "taking the name of the Lord in vain is probably more far-reaching than you think.
Prosperity's Second Commandment
Continuing our series based on Georganna Tree West's Unity Class, Prosperity's Ten Commandments, we look at "You Shall Make No False Images". In the Bible, the wording reminds us not to worship "graven images" or "false idols"... and we take this as a reminder not to hold thoughts and images of lack or limitation in consciousness.
Prosperity's First Commandment
We are not meant to live in a constricted, fearful manner. We are meant to live abundantly! Open arms, open minds, open hearts, welcoming and accepting of the infinite Good which is God.
A Foundation of Prayer
Those of us in Unity claim the aspiration that everything we do has its foundation in prayer. Beginning with co-founder Myrtle Fillmore's physical healing, we have held ourselves, each other, and the world at large in prayer for over 125 years. We align with the highest Truth we know, and move "in the Godward direction" to find the still, quiet wisdom within each of us.
A Healing Prayer Service
Human life is hard sometimes. Between hate-based violence, divisive politics, and weather-related catasrophes, the loving work of prayer has never been more important. Unity (and most all of New Thought) was founded in the healing power of prayer. It's time to get back to our roots.
Label Jars Not People
Susan Smith, LUT Cand., reminds us of the ways labels can limit and harm us. We need to recognize our own use of labels, regarding others and ourselves, and remember that "love" is a verb, not an emotion.
