In being still, we open ourselves to a higher wisdom.

In being still, we open ourselves to a higher wisdom.

Only listen to those people in your life who encourage you to be you, to take risks and understand you can be anything.

I was reminded of a saying you may know – it’s a slight variation on a more popular prayer:

God, grant me the serenity to accept the people I cannot change,
The courage to change the one person I can,
And the wisdom to know that person is ME.

I love this, because it brings a little humor to the reality of GRACE. Be still and know I AM. In the midst of the bustle of the day, a family gathering, a workplace challenge, we have the grace to know we can be still. And in being still, we open ourselves to a higher wisdom.

In How to Speak Unity, I wrote as part of the word BEING:

“In the space of stillness, we are able to relax and let go. There is tremendous power in letting go of what could be, for it is then we are able to accept what is. Somewhere between the thoughts of what could be and what is, there is usually a more perfect solution waiting to be birthed. Our greatest insights come from stillness.”

When we’re facing a challenge, question or conflict, our own GPS (God Personalized System) will guide us.  It’s wonderful to receive good advice from trusted friends, and it’s miraculous to know we have our own best friend within. When we listen, we know. When we know, we can be sure and trust ourselves to express ourselves as the unique and beautiful beings we are!

What Do You Believe About Heaven?

What Do You Believe About Heaven?

In Unity, we believe heaven is a state of consciousness which is realized by living in the present moment.We do not acknowledge heaven in the traditional sense,as a place in the sky or a piece of property with pearly gates where all “good” people will one day coexist. It does not seem fathomable to us…
