IN TUNE WITH THE INFINITE

Unity is a way of life based on prayer in the highest scientific sense of the word.  We follow the instructions found in the scriptures . . . “In quiet and in confidence is our strength and our soul satisfaction.”  To be quiet is to be undisturbed.  To be confident is to have full trust, present assurance, and certain acknowledgement of near and distant future circumstances.  Quiet and confidence is the basis of strength, firmness, and courage.  It is the foundation of wisdom that replaces false ideas with accurate higher understanding which is the fulfillment of the sincere desire or yearning of the heart.

 

When the forces of change manifest like a mighty wind rather than reacting in a variety of ways we can take time for an interlude of reflective prayer and meditation and there, in the deep silence, become anchored in that which is ever unmoved by surface happenings.  Once grounded and centered in soul-peace and God-awareness, we can again turn our attention to the outer circumstances and effectively relate to them.  Greater is that which is within us (and which we really are) than anything that is outside of us.

 

“In quiet and confidence is our strength and our soul satisfaction.”  This is the path to building a greater PRAYER CONSCIOUSNESS and remaining centered and poised in the ONE PRESENCE AND POWER."

Rev. Helice Greene

 

GOD'S LAW OF ADJUSTMENT

You and I must with understanding declare the law of God as a present activity in our growth and unfoldment.  The purpose of Divine Law is to govern our thoughts, harmonize and adjust our thinking with affirmative energy.

 

One of our great powers is understanding, and it is our need to develop the consciousness of being ONE WITH THE SOURCE.  We know God’s Law of Adjustment is based on the LAW OF LOVE.

 

Obedience to this law teaches us how to take possession of our faculties under discipline and move forward in faith.  God’s Law of Adjustment does not allow us to continue in our mistake, but shows us the way to walk in TRUTH. 

 

Scripture tells us, “The battle is not yours, but God’s . . . Set yourself, stand ye still, and see the salvation of the Lord.”  We are responsible to relinquish old ways of acting and let wisdom furnish us with enlightenment.

 

 

Let us use this affirmation:  “I BREATHE IN THE PEACE OF GOD AND LET PEACE FLOW THROUGH ME.”

CALL FORWARDING

From the prophet, Jeremiah, “Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.”  I hear these words and I am reminded that I have work to do. 

 

Whether one holds a traditional view of God somewhere separate and apart or embraces his or her own spiritual nature, there is work to do.  God always assumes the greatest burden on our behalf, always eager to respond and to attend to our highest and greatest good.  However, there remains that which is incumbent upon us.  The quote from Jeremiah reminds us exactly of that responsibility that we hold.  It is ours to call, to evoke God and our shared relationship.  Today we have catch phrases such as, “Let go and let God.”  This is a powerful prayer but particularly so if it comes from a proactive state of mind rather than a mindset of passivity.  Positive results are channeled through working through Principle.

 

The rest of the quote is no less profound, “and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.”   In other words, show serious interest in exercising Spirit in your life, and you will realize much more than you had ever imagined.  It is that small requirement of the call that results in Spirit unfolding and affirms our I AM, our reality of Oneness.  It is the equivalent to, “Let there be light,” the onset of the creative process in the Universe and in our lives.
