Denise’s Daring Daydreams for 11/30/2017

The holidays will become holy if we make them so.  Can you believe that it is December already?  It seems only yesterday that we began our trip of becoming a #force4good.  Take a look at Unity of Music City now.  We have reached out into our community and beyond in a big way and for that I am truly grateful.  Don’t forget our Holiday Luncheon this Sunday which is a day of thanksgiving and a reminder of who and what we are. 

December is time to remember what Unity and New Thought are all about – expanding consciousness on the planet by allowing love to flow in and through us every day in every situation. This particular season assists us in focusing on the rebirth of that love.  Angelus Silesius, a German Priest in the late 1600’s stated, “Though Christ a thousand times in Bethlehem be born, if he’s not born in thee, thy soul is all forlorn.”  These words remind us that the Christmas Story is our story.  It stirs believers and unbelievers alike not only to celebrate the birth of Christ but also to become the expression of Love, Peace and Joy in the world. 

The Christ is not about just one man.  The Christ represents our higher self.  The story of the birth of Jesus is an invitation to a mystical journey within ourselves – a place where we can find not only our divinity but also our full humanity – the inner Christ – our higher self.  As we move through the Christmas story, we are illuminating the path traveled by so many before us.  We are gradually led to a place in which our consciousness becomes alive with possibilities.    

Join us this Sunday as we begin the New Thought Journey of Advent – the birth of Hope, Peace, Love and Joy on this planet and in our lives.  We will be assisted in raising our vibration through the music of Pat UpChurch, Deb Moore and again the wonderful Unity in Harmony (Our Very Own Praise and Worship Team). 

Affirmation for December 3rd:  I am the bridge between heaven and earth.  The Hope of all Creation flows through me now.

Denise’s Daring Daydreams for 11/22/2017

We have spent November creating Gratitude Graffiti.  Through the process we have become more and more aware of how the practice of being thankful shifts not only our attitudes but our entire world.  So how do we move from trying to change the exterior to being willing for our higher power to change us?  The truth is, our fundamental happiness stems not from anything that happens in the material world.  Our happiness stems from a place of love.  Wherever there is love, there is God. 

Sometimes love seems like a tall order until we realize that love is what we are.  So where is the disconnect?  If I am love and love is God, why is there such chaos in our world?  The Course of Miracles states that it does not teach the meaning of love because that is beyond what really can be taught.  The course does teach the process of removing blocks to our awareness of love.  Love is all around us, but we are in the habit of deflecting it because love can hurt or love can get messy . . . you fill in the blank. 

With every attitude of attack or defense, we send love away.  With every finger we point in accusation, with every label we use to separate, we tell love to leave.  With every thought of limited possibilities we tell the miracle to move along and bless someone else.  The transformation of the heart will take more than an intellectual decision.  To have the experience of love, we must open our hearts to receive it. 

Join us on Sunday morning as we complete our lessons on being a #force4good.  Our very own “Unity in Harmony” will be sharing their time, talent and treasures with us.  It’s more than just the words we say, it’s more than just the prays we pray, it’s acts of kindness I do each day, I share peace and joy and love. 

Blessings for an amazing Thanksgiving.
