Denise’s Daring Daydreams for 03/07/2019

If you are reading this, I am returning to Nashville from a Spiritual Experience in Eagle Butte, South Dakota (population around 1500). I will be staying on a Reservation and experiencing what real Native American life, conversations and experiences look like.  I know that when I return to Unity of Music City, I will be changed, maybe not showing on the outside, but feeling very different on the inside. 

Last Sunday, our youth took us on a journey through Oz to discover what we say we believe in Unity – “The Answers are right inside of each of us.”  There is a song that we sometimes sing, “It’s in everyone of us to be wise, find your heart open up both your eyes.”  Have you ever wondered how the world could be different if each of us really knew that all our answers were right inside?  What if we knew we didn’t have to march to the beat of anyone else’s drum?    

I affirm that the youth wet your appetite for more.  During March we will be focusing on the Divine Order of the Universe and how Justice is a big part of that “order.”  Have you ever taken the time to define what Justice is?  In our 3D world today, Justice can be defined as fairness or a lack of bias.  And how many of us know of situations where it seems that concept does not play out because of . . . you fill in the blank. 

One of the minor prophets in the Old Testament, (They are called minor prophets because their books are smaller – who knew!?)  became very upset with the powers/government of the day because he saw how people were treated.  He felt that the treatment was inhumane and he spoke out about it.  One of the scriptures that is well known from his book is Micah 6:8 begins with the words, “What does the Lord require of you?”  Of course in metaphysical terms Lord = Law.  

So begin to look at the following through the lenses of Universal Law – “What I do to another I do to myself.”  (We are all one.) 
 

DO  Justice

LOVE  Mercy

WALK  Humbly
 

If you look closely at the left of the equation the words DO LOVE WALK should jump out.   What if – and that’s a big “if” – every time you placed your feet on the ground, love was walking? 

  Stepping Humbly Towards Justice Through Loving Acts of Mercy

 

It’s in everyone of us . . . . .

Denise’s Daring Daydreams for 02/21/19

Valentine’s Day has come and gone and the question is, “Are you choosing love?”  Am I choosing love, or do I save it for some special occasion and then go back to being . . . you fill in the blank with afraid, mad, sad, etc.

Many of us have lived in the darkness for so long we don’t even realize that there is light if we just open the blinds.  And those blinds I am speaking of are the blinds of our heart and mind.  I speak of opening our hearts and minds every Sunday as I pray over our tithes and offerings, and as most things said on a regular basis, those words begin to lose their meaning. 

What does it mean to open our hearts and minds?  It means to surrender to the Holy Spirit for guidance.  Oh, no!  What if I can’t surrender?  What if letting go is too scary of a proposition for me?  What if Holy Spirit chooses to heal it in a way that I don’t like? 

Well,  I suggest you join us on Sunday morning for Love Erases Fear.  When begin to surrender to the Holy Spirit, it takes all the pressure off of me to “fix it or make it ok.”

Yes, I knew some of you needed a reset breath.  Now – that’s better.  The amazing Vic Sorrell will be sharing music with us.  I know you will not want to miss this final lesson about Universal Principle #2: Love is the Underlying Force of Evolution.
