Denise’s Daring Daydreams for 03/16/2017

Jesus the Master Teacher told his followers that unless they became as little children they would never inherit the kingdom of heaven.  Now I don’t know about you, but that statement at times causes me to think, “Wonder how I would respond to this situation if I were more child like? 

I call to mind three examples of children who responded to three different situations in brave ways.  Their courageous behaviors not only affected the people around then but shaped the future of our world.    

Anne Frank
Bravely wrote the account of
hiding during the Holocaust
 
Ruby Bridges
The first black child to enter
an all-white elementary school
In Louisiana in 1960

Charlie Simpson
Raised 120,000 British Pounds
for earthquake victims in Haiti
by riding his bike.

These children had not even read the book about becoming a #force4good.  It just flowed from them naturally.  Do you believe that is a part of what Jesus was saying? 

Join me on Sunday morning as we take a little deeper look into how we as adults could learn a few things from the children we choose to be around.  And joining me for special music is Carol Grace Anderson, a performer who is truly a child at heart. 

I leave you with a Wayne Dyer Quote:

“Recapture your childlike feelings of wide-eyed excitement, spontaneous appreciation, cutting loose, and being full of awe and wonder at this magnificent universe.”

Denise’s Daring Daydreams for 03/09/2017

Unity of Music City is Rediscovering Lent in a New Thought way.  The Second Sunday  of Lent focuses on Imagination which is one of Unity’s 12 Powers.  Imagination is located in the area of the third eye and when quickened by the Holy Spirit this Christ-like faculty allows us to image and form in our minds eye the desires and dreams of our hearts. 

The Imagination will carry out any idea or set of ideas that we as the lovers and dreamers set forth.  The question becomes twofold:

What am I seeing?

and

What am I seeking?

Sometimes we as humans are unaware of how our own imagination is working.  I’m going to share a statement with you to ponder a bit before Sunday:

“Worry is the darkroom where negatives develop.”

If we are willing to give up something for Lent, maybe our incessant need to worry would be a great idea.  What if we understood that the things we worry about are being fleshed out in our minds in such a way that we are imagining them right into manifestation? 

Do you think that if we understood that statement, we might choose to imagine what we wanted rather than what we worried about?

Sunday’s affirmation is “I see myself as God sees me.”  The living loving presence of God, the essence of the Christ sees each of us as powerful beyond measure.  We just don’t realize that personal power; and we have chosen to use it to the detriment of ourselves and others.  What would I love?  What if I let go of worry and knocked on heaven’s door?

P.S.:  Don’t forget to spring forth your clocks on Saturday  Night as we enter Daylight Savings Time.  

Namaste’
