A new LIGHT is coming into the world. Spiritual consciousness, the Knowledge of the indwelling Christ Presence is moving within individual consciousness releasing the mortal mind from illusion to REALITY.
The time has come to know what it means when Paul said, “When I was a child, I thought as a child, but when I became an adult, I put away childish things.” I Corinthians 13:11 & 12
As we mature spiritually we are no longer reluctant to release the old wine of limitation inherent in the past. We are ready to put truth in new bottles and come to life. We radiate and let the TRUE LIGHT within us shine fully and freely.
The higher subtle vibrations of LIGHT are quickening those who have ears to hear and eyes to see the higher purpose of physical life and to look with spiritual eyes to the fields that are white unto harvest.
Now is the time for rejoicing. Now is the time for a greater vision for our world to be born. The Psalmist writes, “People without a vision soon perish.” Spirit, the authentic power, is revealing a vision that inspires us and calls us to be willing to be guided by Infinite wisdom. The vision requires us to be willing to work in love, cooperation, and harmony with those around us and with our human family.
This vision, written in our souls, inspires us to be bold as “we the people” keep the “High Watch” of what could be. We are ready to experience the “Prince of Peace” within our own individual beings. The depth of true humility is understood. We no longer confuse the personal sense with the I AM.
Our finite or personal self is a God-given instrument to do God’s work in the world. Not by might nor by power is our work fulfilled. We are here to be witness to our true purpose – to be a LIGHT BEARER to our world. “Ye are the light of the world” – that God-light which is manifesting itself to all humankind. May our Light continue to shine brightly.
Lowell Fillmore tells us, “The problem of human welfare is not lack of supply, but how to make use of the abundant supply already provided.” Somehow in the recesses of mind we realize there must be an ever-widening vision. As a result more blessings become tangible in our life’s experience. It is essential we all develop an unshakable faith in the ever-present good that is ours now.
When life presents disturbing challenges, take time, wait for a few moments before exploding. In quiet realization our emotions are stilled, and we can think clearly. Life is all about appreciation, and living is its own answer to attitudes and behavior. Unity does not teach using God-Power to control or manipulate situations. Remember, God-Power is always working through love. When love is not present we experience lack in many forms. We must not allow ourselves to become overly zealous regarding the Unity teachings. Respect for personal beliefs is vital to the Unity way of life. We cannot prosper if we are looking at the shortcomings in others. We need to look at our own understanding.
Students of Truth are working with principles of Truth often beyond their current understanding. They may have an intellectual perception, but haven’t caught the spiritual intent. “According to your faith be it done unto you.” To what extent are we using our faith to make the demonstration of the POWER OF TRUTH.
We are to use our intellect in constructive projects, overcoming the tendency to doubt or worry. Remember, “There is a spirit in us; and the inspiration of the Almighty giveth us understanding.” There are better methods of doing things than the intellect alone can conceive. Give DIVINE WISDOM an opportunity to help on this journey of faith.
The affirmation for the month is: “MY INTELLECT IS OBEDIENT TO DIVINE WISDOM, AND I ALWAYS LISTEN FOR THE SPIRIT OF TRUTH TO REVEAL THE RIGHT ACTION.”
