march-manifestationGreetings Friends,

Charles Fillmore, co-founder of Unity, wrote, “All is finished first in consciousness and mind then rests, in faith, from further mental activity. This ‘rest’ precedes manifestation.” This means we ask in faith and then rest from worry about the “hows” and “whens.” We simply pray and move our feet as guided by Spirit. And that’s just what we’ve been doing here at Unity.

Raising the Roof!

In August, 2015, we obtained estimates to replace the three flat portions of our roof. As soon as the “sticker shock” wore off, we began a capital campaign to raise the funds. My friends, we are now close enough to our goal that the Board of Trustees is calling for a vote to move forward. Whenever we plan to spend more than $25,000, our Bylaws require a vote of the membership during an official membership meeting. That meeting is tomorrow, March 4th, at 12:30. I invite you to attend the meeting and be a part of this Spirit-led process.

There’s another big project that the Board has been building in consciousness as well. We haven’t spoken about it before, but it’s very exciting and I’ll explain it in detail during the Annual meeting. All are welcome and encouraged to attend, though only active members can vote on ballot issues.

Conscious Manifestation

The process of conscious creation begins with knowing who you are and your relationship with God, our Source. We are creative creations co-creating. Made in the image and likeness of Infinite Spirit, we are spiritual beings having a human experience! It is our greatest joy to express our love and creative power for good. We, as a spiritual community, have been building a consciousness of sacred community, spiritual purpose, and selfless generosity. We’ve prayed and acted in faith. And now, we’re blessed to be sacred witnesses to the unfolding of Spirit at work in our spiritual home.

This is the Year

In the six years that I’ve been honored to serve as Senior Minister here, I’ve seen so much positive change. I want to give special thanks to those who’ve served on the Board with me during the past two years. Our meetings begin with meditation and prayer. We are Spirit-led in our discussions and decisions. We live the Unity Principles in sacred service. As we’ve rested from any fear-based mental activity, our roots have grown stronger and deeper. There’s a rising feeling that this is the year for seeing even greater manifestation of outward and upward growth at Unity of Dayton. Let us give thanks and be joyful!  

In Light and Love,

Rev. Cindy

Dancing with the Universe – Mar. 4, 2018

In The Surrender Experiment, Michael Singer tells his remarkable story of his willingness to surrender his personal preference and go with the flow of life. He was in awe as, almost magically, whoever or whatever was needed came to him. He writes, “It felt like I was dancing with the perfection of the universe.” When the universe invites you, are you willing to dance?

“After almost thirty years, I’d seen enough perfection unfold around me that nothing in me wanted to interfere with the flow ever again.” ~ Michael Singer

Affirmation: Everything is always working out for me.

When Silence Leads to Service – Feb. 18, 2018

Life has a way of taking us to our highest good, as long as we’re willing to go! In his book, The Surrender Experiment, Michael Singer learns that the path he expected to take isn’t taking him where he expected to go. Is it possible that life knew what it was doing and his own mind knew nothing? In the quest for spiritual awakening, sometimes silence leads to service.

“Sharing my place of solitude certainly wasn’t what I thought I wanted, but that’s just because I didn’t understand that serving others is much higher than serving yourself.” ~ Michael Singer

Affirmation: I am opening to life’s highest possibilities.
