As the two of us excitedly prepare to embark on our trip to Unity Village for the annual Unity Peoples’ Convention, we are anticipating an inspiring and energizing visit. Nothing like returning to the Mother Ship and connecting with colleagues to remind us of why we are involved in the powerful, transformative work of our New Thought movement.
The Unity Principles we teach can truly transform our lives if we embody them. The first foundation principle – There is only One Presence and One Power active in my life and in the universe, God the Good – is a revolutionary statement that, when truly lived has the potential to completely change our lives. Why?
Because when everything we hear on the nightly news is screaming the opposite message, it is tempting to believe that our life can be against us. To stay rooted in the Truth that nothing and no one can be in opposition to who we really are, while in the face of seemingly contradictory evidence, is exactly how we go about being the change we are seeking in the world.
The ability to walk the spiritual path and be a healing presence no matter what may be showing up in our path, comes from being connected to the deeper intelligence of the heart. It is through the heart that we discover the richness of the One Life and experience a greater sense of well-being and worth. Spirit’s gifts are accessible to us as we sustain elevated emotions such as appreciation, empathy, compassion and kindness.
The author Neale Donald Walsh writes, “Consider this possibility: You have come to the room to heal the room. You have come to the space to heal the space. There is no other reason for you to be here.” Regardless of how things look and feel, you are in your right and perfect place to bring healing to whatever room, space or situation you are presently in.
Our planet needs all hands on deck! The call is out for every one of us to walk the talk of Oneness and be agents for positive change in order to bring into manifestation a more compassionate world. Could there be any better reason to be here?
