Living in the Love Vibration

Mon, 02/17/2020 - 8:00am
Well into midlife, I've finally discovered that the law of attraction means living in the love vibration. Not only is this the law of attraction, it is the law of life. If we want good to manifest for us, we must commit ourselves to feeling good, being good, doing good. Good is God expressing through us. When we live in the love vibration, our energy resonates at a high frequency and we express...

Five Smooth Stones

Sun, 02/16/2020 - 8:10pm
Unity gives us five smooth stones to use in our overcomings. These are the five basic Unity teachings. Smooth Stone One: The One Presence and Power David, you’ll remember, brought down Goliath with his first stone. So, too, can we overcome any fear when we have developed sufficient skill in using our first stone: There is only One Presence and One Power in the universe: God, the omnipotent...

Curiosity

Wed, 02/12/2020 - 4:07pm
Building Curiosity Into Your Spiritual Practice “Curiosity killed the cat, but satisfaction brought it back!!”—Anonymous As this early 20th-century saying implies, an enlivening satisfaction can be had by satisfying curiosity. The abbreviated warning “Curiosity killed the cat” probably never stifled curiosity, because the truth is that curiosity motivated the cat just as curiosity motivates...

How the Kindness Journal Came to Be

Tue, 01/28/2020 - 11:00am
For more than 100 years, Unity employees have enjoyed a “culture of kindness” at work. New employees regularly comment on it. “Everyone is so nice here.” “You can feel how much everyone really cares about us.” “It’s not like other places I’ve worked.” It’s Unity World Headquarters’ culture of kindness. Recently, Unity employees had the opportunity to spread that kindness to the world. In...

The Importance of Prayer and Meditation

Mon, 01/27/2020 - 11:00am
The most important way to discipline the mind, and thus connect with Truth, is to spend regular time in prayer and meditation. Charles and Myrtle Fillmore knew firsthand what a tremendous difference prayer can make in life. If we all applied ourselves to prayer, we could free ourselves of the ills of humanity. “Prayer is man's steady effort to know God,” said Charles. “There is an intimate...

A Spiritual Practice for Lent

Sun, 01/26/2020 - 12:00pm
During Lent, we fast from unwanted beliefs. We feast on Truth. What are the ways we choose to recognize and “celebrate” Lent? Lent is a season of preparation for Easter, coinciding with spring, the season of new growth in nature. Beginning with Ash Wednesday, we count 40 days plus six Sundays until Easter. Easter always occurs on the first Sunday after the paschal full moon, or the first full...

The Prayer of Faith

Fri, 01/24/2020 - 1:00pm
God is my help in every need; God does my every hunger feed; God walks beside me, guides my way Through every moment of this day. I now am wise, I now am true, Patient and kind, and loving, too; All things I am, can do, and be, Through Christ the Truth, that is in me. God is my health, I can't be sick; God is my strength, unfailing, quick; God is my all, I...

Appreciation

Thu, 01/23/2020 - 6:20pm
What you appreciate appreciates The word appreciate means to increase in value. Some people have a knack for knowing the true worth of things long before their value is revealed. I have always admired my brother’s impeccable taste in cars. In 1978, he purchased a brand-new Buick Park Avenue, which he has maintained in mint condition inside and out for more than four decades. It has 74,000...

Service Was Always Part of the Journey

Wed, 01/15/2020 - 10:52am
Myrtle Fillmore, Healing, and the Unity Fifth Principle Myrtle Fillmore is the cofounder of Unity, a movement founded on prayer. As the story is told, she was diagnosed with a group of chronic symptoms, often called tuberculosis in her day, and given a poor prognosis. However, in 1886, she attended a lecture that introduced her to the idea of the capacity of the mind to heal. Not just “heal...

God Is Healing You Now

Mon, 12/23/2019 - 3:00pm
God is healing you now! It is occurring at this very moment whether you know it or not. You need not have some mystical experience. You need not feel any unusual physical sensation. You need not even be aware of how it is happening—you need only to relax, to let go, and to be assured that it is being done. If you are facing a healing challenge of any kind, you can be sure God's healing power...

I find myself wondering what will emerge and how will this spiritual journey of being and becoming unfold. Here’s a to-do list for each one of us for the new year. It focuses on cocreating a world that works...

12 Powers for the 12 Days of Christmas

Thu, 12/19/2019 - 10:32am
A practice to develop your spiritual powers and inspire the year ahead At Christmas, we celebrate the birth of our divine identity. Our newborn awareness must be nurtured and nourished, our spark kindled, so that we may be the blazing light of the world that is our spiritual birthright. Our spiritual powers are inherent. They are as natural to us as our human capacities. Each of the Twelve...

Jesus gave you the basis for working miracles in your life Today is the day to keep on having faith in God. In everything, have faith in God's love and wisdom at work in your life. In everything that has already occurred, choose to have faith and know that God's presence and power were active.

The Spirit of Happiness

Unity legend May Rowland on the wellspring of joy "Bless the Lord, O my soul; And all that is within me, bless his holy name!"—Psalm 103:1 Have you ever been so filled with joy that this Scripture sprang from your heart to your lips, and you thrilled with the ecstasy of living? If you have not yet touched the wellspring of joy within you, then sing this paean of praise to yourself until the...

The Law of Mind Action

Wed, 11/27/2019 - 10:28am
How do our thoughts shape our experiences? There is a wonderful story that I wish I could give credit to from whomever I heard it. A minister is preaching about the Law of Mind Action. With great passion, he preached that the very thoughts we hold in our minds become our reality. All during the sermon the pastor could not help but notice that a teenage boy was squirming in his seat while he...

Compassion

Tue, 11/05/2019 - 3:35pm
Make connections. Do acts of love. Make life worth living. I learned a powerful lesson as a teenager working as a cashier at a very busy neighborhood supermarket. There were always incredibly long lines at checkout. I would concentrate on moving the line along as quickly as I could. I was the model of speed and efficiency as I rang up items and bagged them all. I was focused. I was driven. I...
