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.
07/29/2018 - Permanent Prosperity
Rev. Nita returns from vacation, and continues our summertime focus on the wisdom of Unity co-founder, Myrtle Fillmore. Her book, Healing Letters, has a great chapter entitled "Permanent Prosperity". Her first words of wisdom? We already have everything we need within. The primary practice is to continually return our focus to Source. The outer things are continually changing. Only Source is constant.
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.
07/15/2018 - Choosing Faith and Spiritual Understanding
Do you remember the first time you walked into a Unity or other New Thought center? Licensed Unity Teacher Susan Smith shares how these principles have transformed her life, and suggests ways you might also work with them.
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)
