Denise’s Daring Daydreams for 12/15/16

A Physician once said, “The best medicine for humans is love.”  Someone asked, “What if it doesn’t work?  He smiled and said….. Increase the dose.”

We came into these bodies as love with a natural tendency to be love.  So what happened? 

We were taught to focus outside ourselves. We were taught to look at the world and beginto see the differences instead of the“Connecting link of Oneness.” 

Looking at the definition of the word “medicine,” two images rise to the surface. 

  1. The science or practice of diagnosis, treatment and prevention of disease, or
  2. A compound or preparation used for treatment of prevention of disease. 

Louise Hay, author of You Can Heal Your Life, talks about the word disease as “Dis – Ease” (Not experiencing ease and grace in your life).  This same definition is used by new thought practitioners and healers who are continuously aligning with wellness and choosing not to empower health issues by focusing on a particular ailment or diagnosis (knowing that dis – ease is not only physical but more of a Dis – Connection to Vibration of Love and Oneness)

During Advent, the world focuses on Love.  Do we really know the power that is love?  Unity’s founding father, Charles Fillmore states:

Love is the connecting link that binds together the whole human family. 

 

Unity of Music City has an old vision statement that I believe is still a big part of who we are and what people feel when they are with us:

“Remembering our oneness with all creationwe awaken the world to infinite possibilities.”

Join us on Sunday as we answer three important questions: 

  • What is love?
  • How do I create more love within myself?
  • How can I share that love with others?

Want to see, hear, feel, and experience more love in your life and in the world?

 Increase the dose!

Wednesday Night in our Peace Circle we focused on World Peace.  We have begun each of our circles with a sacred reading. Last night we began by listening to ‘We Are the World’, co-written by Michael Jackson and Lionel Richie and produced by Quincy Jones.  The song was recorded as a charity single – United Support of Artists for Africa in 1985. 

This one song raised over 63 million for humanitarian aid in Africa and the US.  The way it was put together and recorded was a show of cooperation and peace among some of the most famous artists in the music industry at the time.  Richie and Jackson created a vocal guide that was shipped to all the artists who would be involved.  Enclosed in the package was a letter that started:  “My fellow artists”:

“The cassettes are numbered and I can’t expresshow important it is not to let this material getout of your hands.  Please do not make copies.Please return this cassette the night of the 28th
In the years to come when your children ask, ‘What did you do for the war against world famine’?
You can proudly say, this was my contribution.”

The story goes that parts were assigned, the entire recording event was choreographed in detail, and each person received along with their cassette their specific role, where they would stand and by whom, what specific part they would sing.  Upon entering the recording studio, the musicians were greeted by a sign pinned to the door which read, “Please check your egos at the door.”  They were also greeted by Stevie Wonder, who proclaimed that if the recording was not completed in one take, he and Ray Charles would personally drive each person home.

This Sunday our focus will be, “I Am Peace.”  One of my favorite peace quotes is the following:

Peace.
It does not mean to be in a place wherethere is no noise, trouble or hard work.It means to be in the midst of those things and still becalm in your heart. 

How do I bring peace into this world?  We must be peace.  “We can’t go on pretending day by day that someone somewhere will soon make a change.”   If that many famous artists can come together in one place for one goal – to be of service and bring some peace to people who are hurting – would we do any less? 

“I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I as a stranger and you invited me in.”  Matthew 25:35

Consider in the years to come when the children of the world ask, “What did you do to help”?

Namaste’,
Rev. D
