Using Nature to Heal the Spiritual Self

Tue, 04/16/2019 - 2:39pm
The Earth Has Everything It Needs: So Do We Many of us have a tendency to accumulate stuff. We hold on to it. We hoard it. We worry about not having enough of it. We often get caught up in wanting to have, do, or be more. However, when we look outside ourselves to the world around us, we remember that we already have everything we need. Reconnecting to nature is an opportunity to slow down,...

Listening to Poetry: Resonance of Truth, Healing, and Mystical Tradition

Wed, 04/10/2019 - 8:57am
Writer Annie Finch said poetry distinguishes itself from other forms of art not on its basis of language or thought.

Finding Comfort

Tue, 04/02/2019 - 10:36am
Affirmation: The Christ presence is my guide, my strength, and my comfort. Comfort might feel like a warm blanket on a cold winter day, a place to relax and feel safe. Sometimes it appears in a stranger’s smile, a cup of tea, a hug, or a kind word of reassurance from a loved one. Our souls long for this reassurance, to know they are safe, loved, and part of something greater. Ultimately, the...

Six Benefits of Spiritual Travel

Tue, 03/19/2019 - 10:42am
When Tourism Goes Beyond Seeing the Sights, It Can Transform You and the World Travel changes you. It isn’t something people can see, but inside you know you’re different. Having a spiritual experience is much the same. It’s an invisible mark on your consciousness. There was a time I thought going to other places around the world was an ego-based desire—a quest to become worldly and well-...

How I “Wrote It on My Heart”: My Acts of Kindness Journey

Mon, 02/18/2019 - 1:45pm

I was drawn in by the beautiful artwork throughout the book but kept reading because it made me feel so good. As a Unity employee, I was intrigued by the thought that these ideas for kind actions were submitted by my coworkers. The book, as the title...

On Being Present: Achieving the Freedom of Now The terms “being present” and “living in the now” have become clichés on the New Thought spiritual path and in the nondual tradition in general.

Got Kindness?  Studies show a compassionate lifestyle does more for you than bring a smile to your face. You get what you give. This basic truth echoes throughout time and space, nowhere more poignantly than in the Golden Rule itself: Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. But how does that impact our daily lives? It’s one thing to read the words or even to hold them as a...
