Denise’s Daring Daydreams for 10/27/16

“What we reach for may be different, but what makes us reach is the same.”  Mark Nepo 

Over the last month we have been discussing beliefs, how they are formed within each of us, and how we go about shifting or changing those beliefs that are no longer serving us.  Many times as we go about the business of changing our beliefs, we anticipate a reward for the uncovering of a new truth.  For our timeless effort, we expect bells, whistles, money, or recognition.  We may even expect more love and appreciation, or at the very least, a life of no more pain, loss and suffering.   

What we eventually discover is that no amount of thinking and shifting can eliminate some of the pain of living.  No reiki attunement, reconnective healing, or chakra alignment can keep the rawness of life from running through us – but that is the deal – it comes to pass through us – not to sit in us.  Remembering that there is One Presence and One Power helps me know that I’m in the place where God shows up. There is nothing that can separate me from the Unconditional Love of God because I Believe.    

The truth is we chose to come into these lives and it seems the closer we get to the core of the truth of our being the more we look for that reward.  Soooo…..are you ready to hear some deep truth?  The reward for uncovering the truth of your being is no longer playing the victim card and stepping into the experience of with who you are – a Divine Child of God.  The reward for understanding that fact is peaceful moments in the midst of chaos.  The reward for loving is being the carrier or messenger of love.  It is really that simple. 

The river’s purpose is to carry water, and as the water deepens and widens the purpose grows more and more.  Sunday our youth will be joining us for Multigenerational Service, and sharing with us a story by Neale Donald Walsch, “Little Soul and the Sun.”  You don’t want to miss this exciting service filled with moments of laughter and moment of deep grace.  Voices of Unity will be sharing music.

Denise’s Daring Daydreams for 10/20/2016

Sit still, pay attention, quit fidgeting, stop talking, Shhhhhhh.  Did you ever hear any of those things growing up?  I heard them all over and over again. Maybe my mom was preparing me for a life of meditation and inner transformation.  It is interesting that by the time I got to Unity, it was not difficult at all for me to begin to be still.  Stillness might have been easy, but the knowing was a little bit more difficult.

It’s interesting at this age to realize all the beliefs that I have let go of over the years.  The people who were here for service on Sunday heard one of my released beliefs that “Men are evil.”  And as you begin to ask, how did I let it go? —  I began to become more and more aware of the world around me, my feelings and thoughts, my physical body and the interpretations that I added to each of those inputs. 

Are you aware of the way you interpret everything that happens to you and around you?  If you’ve ever been in a situation with an interpreter, what begins to happen is that you eventually pay more attention to the interpreter than you do to the person who is sharing with you.  And interestingly, sometimes the interpreter shares things that are not exactly what the person who is talking to you shared. 

What if that is the same way with the process of interpretation of your feelings, your thoughts, and the things you are seeing and hearing……?    Did you know that the practice of Awareness – Noticing what you are noticing without attaching judgment could be the first step to the creation of more peace in your life? 

Join us on Sunday as we begin to discuss the Steps on the Path of Peace.   Peter Heavern will be sharing music with us.  One of his songs is called Pathway to Peace.  I leave you with the chorus:

I listen, listen and breathe

I take a little bit of time just to be

With my spirit voice, feeling free

In my spirit voice, I am free to be me.

 

Peace is the Way,
Rev. D
