THE GREATEST DISCOVERY OF ALL TIME

An essential belief of Unity is that one does not wait for just one time of year to celebrate the birth of the Christ Presence.  The medieval mystic Meister Eckhart wrote, “What good is it to me if the son of Mary was born 1,300 years ago and is not born today and in my time and in my culture,” adding that, “the only begotten is forever being begotten.”  His point was that the Christ is a principle, a way of being, not captured in one person but accessible to all persons.

 

For unto us a Child is born within our consciousness. A Child is given and indeed, the government shall be upon Its shoulders.  And Its name shall be Wonderful, Mighty Counselor, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.  This is the Christ Presence within us.

 

Charles Fillmore wrote, “The consciousness of this new life is first formed in the mind, but it has a visible expression.  Jesus was the visible expression of the Christ.  Jesus represents what is going on in every one of us who receives Truth and applies it.  Let us embrace and celebrate the Greatest Discovery of All Time, Christ in you, the hope of Glory.

PROSPERING THROUGH FORGIVENESS

“NOW ABIDETH FAITH, HOPE, LOVE, THESE THREE:  AND THE GREATEST OF THESE IS LOVE.”  The Master Teacher came teaching, living the consciousness of love.  We live in a very complex world crying out in its pain for peace.  Daily, we come in contact with individuals who are filled with anger, resentment, jealousy, and fear.  Always meditation and prayer are the tools we use to cope.  This is not an easy assignment.  One of our Unity teachers gave us a prayer for the healing of ourselves and others.  Everlyn Whitell spent years counseling disturbed individuals using this affirmation, LOVINGLY IN THE HANDS OF THE FATHER: “I PLACE MYSELF AND ALL MY AFFAIRS, LOVINGLY IN THE HANDS OF THE FATHER, WITH A CHILDLIKE TRUST.  THAT WHICH IS FOR MY HIGHEST GOOD SHALL COME TO ME.”  Only too often we cling to the past, our grief, our pain and disappointments to excuse behavior.  We must learn to let go and trust this higher power to free, bless, heal, and prosper our life and world.  Remember, there is an infinite power within us that protects, sustains, and prospers our lives.

HOW DEEP IS YOUR LOVE?

From Paul’s letter to the Corinthians we hear, “These things God has revealed to us through the Spirit; for the Spirit searches everything, even the depths of God.”  We learn from this that the most profound quest for God that we can make is to go within. 

 

This can be so difficult to understand since the world teaches us to search elsewhere.  We tend to look at the surface of things, often drawing conclusions without even delving a bit deeper.  We do this in so many areas, even the very basic ones such as with relationships and the food we eat.  We regard time as one of our greatest commodities.  In this fast and furious world it is important to be dismissive perhaps even more than selective.

 

Paul reminds us that the essence of anything is at its core.  That essence of all things is Divine Essence.  For sure there is plenty evidence of God even at the surface, but the purest knowing can only come to be from the deepest knowing of self.  Deep within is the only place where no question goes unanswered.
