Everything Is Holy Now

We live in an interconnected universe. Physicists have shown that the observer and the observed interact and that energy and matter interchange. Albert Einstein believed that we live in a friendly, supportive, interactive universe. Everything changes, but nothing ever really dies. Jesus presented a very clear image of this loving and responsive universe for us to consider. There was a time when we thought only certain things or specific people were holy. Our Unity understanding reveals that everything is holy now.…

Lessons From Mother Goose

It is good to remember that the Earth is our home, and we were meant to be caretakers of this awesome planet together. Rev. Karen Patrick shares her experience of Mother Goose’s teachings through the lens of the creation story found in Genesis 1:26.

Learning To Fly

In Egypt, an ancient visual concept of the cosmos was envisioned as these enormous wings attached to the disk of the Sun. The wings represent Love and truth, the balance of the opposites. Charles Fillmore was attracted to the symbol of the Egyptian wings, and he adapted them to the Unity movement.  This life will never be without occasional storms. You want to build a shelter within yourself so that when a storm comes, you are safe. All birds know how to find shelter during a…

Easter

Have you heard, the end is near?  For thousands of years prophets and seers have been predicting the end of the world.  In truth there have been many endings and lots of new beginnings too.  The concept of the world is made up of a system of beliefs, thoughts and attitudes and it is constantly changing.  The prophets of old have also predicted a time on earth that all of nature and all of humanity will come together in peace…

Dealing With Strange Times

We are living in strange times for sure. People are not acting like they are supposed to. People are working harder and complaining more. There is something called the crisis point. It comes to all of us at one time or another. What is its purpose? What does it mean when we seemingly go from one challenge to another? Is there something wrong with me?   Strange times, in this case, means that something wants to change. Life is wanting us to transform in some new way. The old ways…

Will, Integrity And Conviction

Why do some resolutions fail? Why does change feel so hard sometimes? How can I strengthen my force of will? We all have areas in our lives that we want to change. It is a common need to desire a happy and fulfilling life. We all have specific needs as human beings that are natural to us all. The Creator has already provided everything in abundance, the things needed for a good life. Our task is to appropriate them! “Having…

The Trickster Spirit

The Trickster has many names and is talked about in every culture in some way, shape, or form.  You may wonder why we are talking about this.  The truth is, we all have a bit of the Trickster operating inside of our minds.  It is an aspect of the mind that keeps you tripping over your feet and then laughs at you for falling. What is the trickster?  The shadow side stays hidden and then shows up in our lives…

Quantum Manifestation

When we can stay centered in a state of grace and receptivity, life will bring us everything we need; and yet there are times when we are called upon to ask for what we want. We will grow and become more confident by demonstrating our belief and positive trust.  In this lesson, we share some steps to the manifestation process and the potential blocks that can keep us from our good. As our connection point, we use a purple-colored box…

Imagination: Romancing The Spirit, Part 2

Using imagination, we can contemplate and consider what it would be like to feel totally loved. Imagine yourself taking a shower or bath in love’s awareness. These images connect us with feelings that lead to the reality and experience of love. To really be loved you have to be able to imagine the possibility of it, which is what opens the door to it. We often imagine ourselves without love and create feelings of loneliness and separation that generate that same experience in the…

Law Of Mind Action

What is the law of mind action?  It is an idea that is also called the law of attraction.  The concept behind this principle is that what we resonate with, we create for our lives.  How we think and feel about life and our world affects how we experience it.  This is a universal law that works exactly the same for every person. It reflects back to us what we keep putting out on a regular basis.   This law is…
