Message from the Minister August 2017
You Have The Power
Absolute good, everywhere present, that is how we define God in Unity. Whatever term you use to define God; the universe, divine Mind, our source, oneness of being or universal consciousness, this one thought can change your whole experience of life and your attitude about everything. This is the foundation of positive, practical Christianity. The more we can see the good in all things, the closer we are to the true nature of the universe, God and ourselves.
Recently I posted a statement on Facebook. It reads, “The Universe is not punishing you or blessing you. It is responding to the vibrational attitude that you are emitting.” In other words, it is giving us another example of the third principle of Unity, “We create our experiences by the activity of our thinking. Everything in the manifest realm has its beginning in thought.”
The problem we have with this teaching is that we don’t want that much power. We would rather remain small and separate from the universe. It seems much safer to go through life that way. It seems much safer to give that power to something outside of our own consciousness. The problem with that kind of thinking is that it keeps us limited to a very small perception of everything, especially ourselves.
I have a challenge for each and everyone of us here at Unity on Cape Cod. Let’s make August the month of reclaiming our spiritual power. For this month, I would like to hold one thought in mind each day… “I have been given all power in Heaven and earth.” and I will be asking myself a question…“What will I do with this power to bless myself the world today?” Each day I will remind myself of my ultimate reality and allow my reality to be manifest in form according to divine ideas.
I am one with the unfailing universal power of truth, love, wisdom and peace. I bring this peace with me wherever I go, and the power of this light in me shines through every appearance of lack or limitation in my life and in the lives of those around me. I am the change agent in every situation that calls for positive change. I am the healing power in every situation which calls for healing. I am the demonstration of love wherever there is a thought of hate. I will represent oneness in the face of separation, and I step forward in the totality of universal love, from which I was created.
Yours in Power and in Truth
