Denise’s Daring Daydreams – 09/26/2013

Do you consider yourself strong?  I guess that is determined by what you think of when I say the word strong.  Physical strength is bodily or muscular power. Are you only thinking about physical strength?  Have you ever heard the statement “the Joy of The Lord is your strength? ….  And what exactly does that mean?  You may have heard the scripture, but may be unsure as to what it is referring to.

Sunday at Unity of Music City, we will be discussing The Healing Power of Joy and how Joy relates to strength in our own lives.  I will give you a few hints.  Lord can also be translated Law.  Now read the statement again and see what resonates with you.  What universal principal or law brings you such joy that you feel strong enough to transcend any obstacle?

On Wednesday evening as we completed our journey Through the Heart of Emerson, we discussed what it means to transcend the chaos and swirl of the world?  When I am able to stand in the Vibration of the Christ, in the midst of anything that might be causing me to feel limited in body, mind or spirit, then I am truly strong.  Join us on Sunday morning when we are joined by the youth for our first ever, Multigenerational service.  I know you will be blessed by the energy and the overwhelming joy the youth will bring into our service.        Namaste’.

Denise’s Daring Daydreams – 09/19/2013

In the Gospel of John, a ruler (a great leader) by the name of Nicodemus came to visit Jesus in the darkness.  Quite interestingly most of us come to the Christ in times of darkness in our lives.  That doesn’t mean that we are speaking to Jesus or the Christ within at nighttime in the light of the moon, What that means to me is that I don’t usually go to my own Christ nature until my ego has tried and failed and I find myself in the middle of unmanageable darkness and chaos.

Isn’t it interesting that many times we don’t pray or meditate until things get….soo bad that we can’t find a way out if the darkness.  I remember when that was the reality of my life.  I remember being in such darkness that I had a feeling that I would die.  I also remember a friend reaching out to me in love and leading me to Unity….a place where I was offered a new kind of prayer that assisted me in reaching the Christ spirit within me.

When the ruler asked Jesus, how can I inherit the kingdom of heaven…..that place of love joy and peace that Jesus had talked about over and over in many if his talks…..the answer was one that Nicodemus did not understand.  Quite frankly, I’m not sure on a good day most of us really “get” what Jesus was talking about.  YE MUST BE BORN AGAIN!  What exactly does that mean!

I’m sure Nicodemus, being the intellectual leader that he was, thought that Jesus would give him a list of do’s and don’t s or some rules and procedures that would shift him right into heaven.  When Jesus gave the answer he did, all bets were off.  Now what?   What exactly did he mean?

Join us on Sunday morning as we continue the ABC’s of Practical Christianity and flow from the darkness into the light.  We also have the amazing Doug Beale sharing special music with us this Sunday.  It is going to be great Celebration Service!    Namaste’. Denise
