Denise’s Daring Daydreams for 04/14/2016

In the beginning of 2016 Unity of Music City began affirming, We Choose Peace.  In fact, we affirm the words in song every Sunday morning at the end of our Sacred Walk of Abundance.  That fact leads me to the real question.  Am I willing to release old ways of being, making room for the vibration of peace in every area of my life?

I know that some days I get caught up in continuing the drama that unfolds in front of me and seem to forget for the moment my ability to make a different choice.  In thinking about why I forget or possibly would not be willing, the answer is usually I would have to make an effort to change my mind.  I do not want to go through the process of changing the familiar way of being that seems fixed in my personality.  Saying things like, “That’s just the way that I am,” or “That’s just the way we do things here,” keeps me stuck.

The Disciple Matthew represents Will.  When Jesus the Master Teacher met him, Matthew was a dishonest Tax Collector taking advantage of people to gain power and money.  Quiet interestingly, Jesus and the other disciples were willing to “set Matthew free” from their personal opinions and judgments.  Matthew had used his knowledge and power in many situations to hurt or harm innocent people.

Many of us would say that decision doesn’t make logical sense.  The facts from the past proved that Matthew could not be trusted to be a disciple of Jesus, a provider of love, joy, and peace to others.  Who in their right mind would give him the role of trusted friend and confidant? And in the midst of all this information, the Christ within Jesus the man called him out.

Even though the decision might appear strange, the Christ within each of us recognizes and begins to harmonize with the vibration of peace.  Peace calls us up to a higher place.  That process begins to happen for each of us when we are willing to set others free from our personal opinions, remembering it is in every one of us to be wise.   When we choose Peace, through the Reset Breath and Quiet Touch our vibration shifts within Body, Mind and Spirit.  It is then that we begin the process of healing.  That vibration of Peace brings healing from separation and judgment.

Jesus the Master Teacher knew that calling Matthew up to his divine appointment would allow not only Matthew a place to shine, but also a deep learning experience for everyone in the group of followers who were most likely stating loudly, “Master, you know you can’t trust Matthew.”  I wonder if they had “camel lot discussions” when Jesus wasn’t around?

Join us on Sunday morning as we discuss Peaceful Willingness.  Am I willing to allow the vibration of Peace to heal my Body Mind and Spirit from those people, places, and situations that I have held the most judgment against?  In John chapter 12 verse 32 Jesus states “If I be lifted up from the Earth, I will draw all humankind up with me.”  This was spoken by Jesus the Master Teacher as he was preparing his disciples for his departure.  This verse is not speaking of death.  Being lifted up is speaking of eternal life in the Kingdom of Heaven, whether that be here on the earthly plane or in the next dimension.

Being “Lifted Up” refers to being in the world but not of it.  So in our lives, as we travel down roads that sometimes are dark and possibly a bit weary may the living loving spirit of God in which we live, move, and have our being Grant us Peace and Give Us Courage to remain Willing.  May we be willing to rise above the vibration of the things that keep us from peace.

Peace is the Way,
Rev. D

Unity of Music City’s Wednesday evening class resumed last evening with a discussion on Words and Prayers.  We are studying the book Christian Healing written by Charles Fillmore and published in 1909.  It always amazes me how every time I read something by papa Charlie, there is quantum physics written on those pages that had not been spoken of in the early 1900’s.

Our conversations last evening surrounded the creative process that happens with the spoken word and how our prayers can either assist in that process or be “spoken amiss” as Charles quoted the scriptures.  Where the rubber meets the road is personal beliefs and faith.  As Truth Students on the path we can become more mindful of our thoughts and our words and our vibrational energy so as to become the vibration of that which we intend to create.  This also includes not focusing thoughts, words, or emotional energy on the conditions in the present moment.  As Mary Morrissey states:  “You can’t get to your dream, you must come from it.”

One of the persons who have been most influential in teaching me to trust and hold the sacred space over the last 7 years is Brenda Williams.  Brenda blessed me and our spiritual community by being a part of #nashvillechoosespeace and signing the peace pole. She has held along with many of us the anchoring of Peace on our land.

This Sunday,  I will be sharing a process that some of us learned from her known as RBQT: Reset Breath Quiet Touch.  The truth behind this process is:

  • One Breathe to connect your higher intelligence
  • One touch to activate your body’s intelligence
  • One moment to sustain Resonance within the Greater Field of Possibilities

Knowing the importance of our intentions and continuing the resonance anchored on our land on Saturday, Brenda has given our planning team use of some power point slides and her teachings to assist us in continuing to not only hold the resonance but to allow it to become stronger as we invite others into that vibration of peace.

I hope you can join us on Sunday as we discuss The Faith Factor.  Dr. Judy is introducing a new special music guest from Glencliff High School. Her name is Alison Brazzel, an amazing performer who is sometimes seen teaching Spanish to high school students.  Alison will blow you away with her soulful presence and reggae sound.

Remembering our oneness with all creation, we awaken the world to infinite possibilities.
Peace is the way.
Rev. D
