This is the fourth installment in the “Walking the Unity Talk” series exploring Unity Principles. In this week’s article, I review and summarize the first and second principles, while setting the stage for the exploration of Unity’s third principle. In the introduction to this series (which you can read here), I stated that the entire series… Read More
This week, I continue the blog series “Walking the Unity Talk” with this third installment titled “In The Image And Likeness,” which explores Unity Principle #2. As before, I will compare UCOH’s statement of this key truth principle with the one articulated by Rev. Ellen Debenport in her book, The Five Principles: A Guide To… Read More
In his book, Awakening the Buddha Within, Lama Surya Das writes about four fundamental daily reflections in Buddhism, known as the Four Mind Changers. These daily reflections are intended to train the mind, to shift away from a focus on the relative world of sense consciousness to a focus on the inner enlightenment of spiritual consciousness.
Last week, I introduced a new blog series I am calling “Walking the Unity Talk.” In this second installment of the series, I explore Unity Principle #1, which states, “There is only One Power and One Presence in the Universe and in my life. God the Good, Omnipotent.” Specifically, we will take a look at… Read More
Over the next couple of months or so, I will be exploring Unity’s five principles in a series of articles titled “Walking the Unity Talk.” This week’s article serves to introduce the series and to set the intention for the articles that follow.
In Unity, we are encouraged to read, to listen, to seek and to question. Unity teachings invite us to expand our heart’s understanding, to know for ourselves that God’s Truth is within and being revealed to us on an ongoing basis. When Charles and Myrtle Fillmore were teaching, they looked on points of disagreement merely as opportunities for everyone to be free to find Truth for themselves.
In his talk this past Sunday morning, Rev. Steve created an experience on inner peace, which included a meditation on inner peace led by Licensed Unity Teacher, Rick Busby. We received several requests to publish the transcript of Rick’s meditation, so we are presenting it in full as this week’s blog article.
The primary objective of A Course In Miracles is to teach the lessons necessary for the attainment of peace, not world peace, but rather inner peace on a personal level. Among the key concepts used to achieve this goal is identifying the “obstacles to peace” so they may be overcome.
A new year is the archetype symbol for new beginnings. It is also the perfect moment to rely on the creative power of our faith. Why? Because the power of faith is the single best creative faculty we have for embracing the inevitable changes that new beginnings bring. In The Twelve Powers, Charles Fillmore describes… Read More
Got transformation? Well, Unity Church of the Hills has it. In fact, the church’s theme for 2017 is “A Year of Transformation.”
One year ago, on the first Sunday in January, I was working upstairs in the media loft during the annual “white stone” meditation service. I was running the video camera for the morning’s third Service and really in the zone, following Rev. Steve as he moved around the platform. He was preparing the congregation for the… Read More
In The Twelve Powers, Charles Fillmore describes the generative power of life as the ultimate “mystery of mysteries” in the consciousness of humankind. If you think about it for a moment, it is easy to see his point. After all, scientific inquiry has been plumbing the depths of the processes of life in the universe… Read More
Are affirmations truly powerful? The short answer is, absolutely! However, the deeper truth is that we use affirmations every day, all day anyway. Every word we speak is an affirmation. The variable is: what reality are we affirming with our words? Licensed Unity Teacher, Bonnie Gale explores the true nature and power of affirmations.
When I woke this morning, I had no idea what I was going to be writing about in this week’s blog entry. However, I don’t tend to be too concerned when this happens. As a creative person and a student of Unity teachings, I know that divine, inspired ideas are always available. There is never… Read More
In this week’s blog, Licensed Unity Teacher, Rick Busby continues our series on “The Twelve Powers” by exploring Charles Fillmore’s presentation on the power of spiritual strength and its connection to Unity Principles.
