Spiritual Communion

Spiritual Communion

Prayer generally implies having spiritual communion with
God or an object of worship, through supplication, thanksgiving,
adoration, or confession. Often the undertone of
prayer is pleading, bargaining and making amends with
God. In Unity and New Thought, prayer is an affirmative
declaration of things, events and circumstances which we
are accepting as truth. In other words, we state in prayer
that which we desire to see. Our prayers, when heard by
others, have heartfelt responses because they are positive,
inspirational,and affirmed as if the desire is so.
Prayer does not change God, prayer changes us. Our
change is within our own minds and hearts in order to
receive those things, events and circumstances we desire. In
prayer, we only state the conditions we want.We do not
put into the prayer the conditions we do not want. If
someone is not well, the prayer is “thank you God for my
health,” rather than “heal my illness.” We
believe God is omniscient, therefore we must also
believe God already knows what we desire. Our prayers
invite what we desire into being.

Living in the Absolute and the Relative

Siddhartha did not wake up being shielded to real, authentic life as a human being. He saw what was real to others and was guided to understand the way of suffering and of peace because he could sit in both realities. Every day we hear stories that are beyond shocking and within many of us…

“Which One Are You?”

“Which One Are You?”

By Poet Ella Wheeler Wilcox There are just two kinds of people on earth today, Just two kinds of people, no more, I say. Not the rich and the poor, for to count a man’s wealth You must first know the state of his conscience and health. Not the humble and proud, for, in life’s…
