The Right to Be You

The Right To Be You

Dear Friends,

Like Thomas, the little engine that could, we all need to move beyond “I think I can” to “I know I can make a difference in this world.” At its core, the message of this book is very simple: Love thy neighbor as thyself. But like all simple truths, it’s complicated, and it took me a long time to taste that truth. I was raised a Southern Baptist and came of age at a time when Civil Rights and Women’s Rights were in full force and Gay Rights, Animal Rights and Religious Rights were being hotly debated. We seemed to be screaming at each other: “love only those neighbors who look like us and believe the same things.”

I wanted to bring all those different rights under one umbrella: Life Rights which covers everyone. And that means you have the right to be you. Excerpt taken from article in Natural Awakenings Magazine written by Rebecca Johnson who interviewed Temple Hayes. It’s really true – the more you fall in love with your life, the more your life falls in love with you.

In New Thought we would call this working with the law of cause and effect. Our ancestors would call it common sense. I would say that life constantly mirrors to us our spiritual journey – the one we are awake to and the space which is awakening before us. One Sunday, I mentioned the statement by Mark Twain, “There are two important days in a person’s life, one is the day you were born and the other is when you find out why.”

Loving life, Temple Hayes

The villagers reached these “prayer rooms” by using their own private footpaths through the brush. When grass began to grow…

A Full Life

A Full Life

We have sacrificed the true message of Jesus that says know your connection to your true Father/Creator and you can have a life full of miracles. We have been taught a very misguided and misleading message that has caused us to live a miracle of being dead while we are alive. We have sacrificed a…

What is Sacred

What is Sacred

We have gone amiss by losing the sacred art of ancient rituals and symbols in our culture. It is evident that we want these rituals and symbols, however, because of the popularity of books by J. K. Rowling and Dan Brown and films such as Raiders of the Lost Ark and Indiana Jones. We long…

What is atonement?

What is atonement?

In traditional Christianity,atonement is the reconciliation of sinful men and women to God through the death of Jesus. In Unity, we do not recognize a need to be reconciled with God because we are all created in God’s image and likeness.As human beings we are the microcosm of the macrocosm, created to express our unique…
