Going for Joy

One of the more involved activities I have undertaken this year is to realize, for myself, a new consciousness. A new realization of my relationship with God. I’ve already taken over a dozen Unity courses, I read dozens of books, I’ve watched hours and hours of...

Letting Go

One of the most popular phrases I hear is "when we get back to normal." I rarely jump in and disrupt whomever is speaking, but the truth is that NOW is what is normal. Normal never has been what is behind us, nor is it what is ahead. The reason so many long for a...

Spiritual Mission

At some point in our lives, we make a conscious decision to feed our spiritual appetite. For some, it begins quite early. I know people who have always attended church and maintain a pretty religious regimen of prayer and Bible study. Others, like me, come to feed...

New Wineskins

I suppose, if I’m honest, one of the things I like most about Jesus is that he was a rebel. Throughout the Gospels, we learn that Jesus did not always follow the rules. He didn’t fast according to traditional Hebrew law, nor did he cow-tow to those in charge just...

Christ Consciousness

Today, I want to share with you what I feel is perhaps the most powerful aspect of our existence. This is the third of four parts of what I am working through as a way of understanding my relationship with God. If you recall, two weeks ago we talked about both the...

The Divine Idea

One very important, very essential part of anyone’s path to spiritual fulfillment is that of contemplation. Our ability to know God begins with our ability to understand our Divine relationship with God. I remember when I was 13 or 14 years old. We lived on a...
