Hosanna!

With joy and praise, I celebrate my growing Christ awareness.

Shouts of “Hosanna!” arise as the people cover the dusty road with palm branches, greeting Jesus with great enthusiasm as he rides a donkey into Jerusalem, according to the Gospel stories.

Spiritually understood, the entry of Jesus into Jerusalem symbolizes the dawning of the awareness of the DIVINE in the heart of humankind. The crowd’s shouts of “Hosanna!” represent prayers that this dawning DIVINE awareness be protected and nurtured.

Metaphysically understood, the entry of Jesus into Jerusalem symbolizes the entry of my DIVINE awareness into my peaceful consciousness. The crowd’s shouts of “Hosanna!” are my thoughts and feelings of praise and joy. What I praise grows in my consciousness. This story informs me about how to increase my DIVINE awareness.

With joy and praise, I celebrate my growing Christ awareness.

Inner Peace

I find the Principle of Peace in the Silence.

The Hebrew scriptures tell the story of the Lord commanding the prophet Elijah to “stand on the mountain before the Lord, for the Lord is about to pass by.” As he waits, Elijah fails to find God as he endures a wind strong enough to split mountains, an earthquake, and then a fire. Then Elijah discovers God, in a sound of sheer silence.

The Silence is a state of total non-awareness. When I come out of this state, I may experience inner peace – a peace that passes understanding. I manifest this peace from the Principle of Peace.

Sometimes chaos surrounds me as I find inner peace. Other times, the chaos may be inside me. I persist in my efforts as I confront inner storms, fires, and earthquakes. Like Elijah, I remain steadfast in faith until inner peace is mine.

I find the Principle of Peace in the Silence.

 Power

I have absolute power over my thoughts, feelings, words, and deeds.

POWER is one of the TWELVE POWERS, sometimes known as DOMINION.  “GOD is POWER; man is powerful. GOD is that indescribable reservoir of stored-up energy that manifests no potency whatever until set in motion through the consciousness of man …” (Fillmore, Charles, Jesus Christ Heals, p. 26)

DOMINION is a POWER I use to be powerful. I use the POWER that God is. I embody DIVINE POWER by choosing words that affirm the TRUTH that I am SPIRITUAL BEINGNESS as I navigate the valleys and peaks of my human experience.

I have dominion over my thoughts, feelings, words and deeds. I affirm statements of Truth while releasing any negativity. I think and speak with the authority from my CHRIST NATURE.

I have absolute power over my thoughts, feelings, words, and deeds.

Pray with Others

As I pray with others, I affirm unfolding good

in their lives and in mine.

Honored by the trust of those who request my prayers, I listen with compassion and then release all thoughts of illness, lack, limitation, or inharmony.

Knowing that my responsibility is not to set the situation right but to see it rightly, I look beyond challenging conditions and attune to the essential TRUTH that the one for whom I pray is innately DIVINE and desires, like me, to express more and more of their DIVINITY.

I know that the DIVINE, the CHIRST PRINCIPLE or I AM, is present in my consciousness and the consciousness of the one for whom I pray. We use IT to restore wholeness in mind, body, emotions, and guide all decisions, inspire prospering ideas, and bring harmony and peace to all relationships.

As I pray with others, I affirm unfolding good

in their lives and in mine.

Time Enough 

I find time enough for all I desire to accomplish. 

How can I best invest my time and resources today? I begin by remembering my SPIRITUAL INHERITANCE, my DIVINE FACULTIES that provide all I need to meet any opportunity or any challenge that life presents. I also follow the example of Unity cofounder Charles Fillmore: “I spring forth with a mighty FAITH to do the things that ought to be done by me.”

I use the PRINCIPLE of ORDER to prioritize my agenda. I utilize ELIMINATION to release whatever I discern is not mine to do. I work my WISDOM and UNDERSTANDING together to guide myself toward the most effective way I can complete each task. I use STRENGTH and ZEAL to maintain my energy and enthusiasm. I employ LOVE to desire the good my efforts are accomplishing.

 I find time enough for all I desire to accomplish.

Well-Being

I am radiant GOD-LIFE.

IF I have an illness or pain from an injury, I may temporarily forget that wholeness is my natural state of well-being. If I focus on symptoms, the thoughts and feelings of illness or injury grow stronger.

It is always best to remember GOD-LIFE, WHOLENESS and HEALTH are my fundamental TRUTH; I AM DIVINE.  In prayer, I align my thoughts and feelings with the POWER OF LIFE and the PRINCIPLES OF HEALTH and WHOLENESS.

As I claim these TRUTHS in prayer, I release any and all thoughts of illness or injury. With my FAITH-inspired vision, I see the energy of LIFE circulating everywhere in my body brining renewed vitality. Every cell in my body glows with well-being as I realize LIFE, WHOLENESS and HEALTH.
 

I am radiant GOD-LIFE

FORGIVE

As I forgive, I know I am DIVINE LOVE.

The PRINCIPLE of LOVE is totally everywhere. There is no spot where LOVE is not. It is one aspect of my DIVINITY. As I forgive, I use DIVINE LOVE, BENEVOLENCE and GENEROSITY. Unity cofounder Myrtle Fillmore wrote, “Forgiveness is the art of putting something else in place of the thing forgiven.” That something else is “the positive realization of the TRUTH of BEINGNESS.”

When I discover resentful thoughts arising about myself, another or incident, I need not condone what was done or left undone.  Regardless of what I perceive may have been done or failed to do, I need only release the temporary and passing thoughts and focus on the timeless TRUTH of each person’s DIVINITY. Even if my new feelings are slow to respond, my act of forgiveness is complete.

As I forgive, I know I am DIVINE LOVE.

GRACE

By virtue of my DIVINITY, I offer grace.

When a burden begins to feel lighter or when the way through a frustrating challenge suddenly becomes clear, I know I am experiencing grace. Not grace from God but grace based on my Divinity.

Traditionally, grace is thought of as unmerited divine assistance. Help from God when we seem to lease deserve it. In a Unity context, since God is PRINCIPLE, grace is something we offer to ourselves or others based on the PRINCIPLES of BENEVOLENCE and GENEROSITY..

Grace is a gift we offer each other. Since it is based on Principle, it is constantly available to everyone by choice. At the moment my urge is to punish or condemn, I pause and center into the awareness of my innate DIVINITY. I access and consciously use BENEVOLENCE and GENEROSITY. I joyfully offer grace.

By virtue of my DIVINITY, I offer grace.

 Joy

I am DIVINE JOY!

At 1 Thessalonians 2:20, the apostle Paul declared, “Yes, you are our glory and joy!”

I pause to remember relationships to which I respond with JOY! I bless everyone who has shared in those relationships. I treasure the good feeling that arises when people let me know how I have facilitated joy in their lives. Sharing joy is an important part of the human experience; it helps people come together in spiritual community.

JOY is a DIVINE PRINCIPLE.  I use it to be joyful; it is a sure sign I am aware of my innate DIVINITY.

As I grow in spiritual awareness of JOY through prayer, meditation and reflection, joy permeates my consciousness infusing every area of my life. I am dedicated to expressing joy, I am a clear expression of the perfect IDEA OF JOY.

I am DIVINE JOY!

Leash ego, unleash DIVINITY

I unleash my DIVINE NATURE.

 In reply to a letter, Myrtle Fillmore said: “The more you think about the CHRIST within, the stronger will grow your consciousness of the DIVINE PRESENCE and your oneness with GOD, until you can ‘be still, and know that I AM GOD.’” (adapted, Myrtle Fillmore’s Healing Letters, pg. 30)  Reflecting on Myrtle’s words, I remember that whatever I’m doing, I need never feel frustrated by the limits of human wisdom and understanding.

Leashing my ego and unleashing my DIVINITY reminds me that the DIVINE PRESENCE is truly me throughout every experience of my life. DIVINE LOVE, LIFE, WISDOM, UNDERSTANDING and STRENGTH are mine. My inner POWER of ELIMINATION works Whenever I call upon it. My highest aspects of my human self, together with my CHRIST NATURE, brings good into my life.

 I unleash my Divine Nature.
