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 that we would reconnect with many
people whom we did not have a great relationship with in
the first place.A magical new place will not bring us closer
to relationships anymore than a vacation can heal the
“family.” Heaven is our gift when we learn to have a true relationship
with ourselves and God. Heaven is given to each
of us when we decide to allow our hearts and minds to be
open and immerse ourselves in the good which is evident
all around us. Instead of believing Heaven is No-Where,
we affirm Heaven is Now-Here!

What Does Your Mirror Reflect?

What Does Your Mirror Reflect?

I have been doing christening ceremonies for the past twenty-three years, and each time I invite everyone from the immediate “village,” who are there to support the child to come into a circle. I always ask, “What do you wish and pray for with this child?” The answers come quickly: to live his dreams, to…
