Practical Spirituality for a Modern Life
Greetings Fellow Traveler’s on the Path,
OCTOBER leads us on to the Unity Power of the Month
ZEAL - ENTHUSIASM.
The other theme for the month from Unity Village is “FINDING COMFORT.” This will be interesting as last month theme was Embracing Change.
Rarely does change occur while we are in our comfort zone.
The Power of Zeal - Enthusiasm is represented by the disciple Simon (the Cananaean). The colour is Orange and the position in the body is in the Medulla - brain stem. The qualities of Zeal are - to start, motivate, be passionate, be enthusiastic. This inner fire can become a” two edged sword” if not used wisely.
At times we can become obsessed (over zealous) with a project or cause and not give fair or equal time to the other basic aspects of our life.
We are Body, Mind and Spirit and if our enthusiasm for a cause creates unbalance in any one of these areas we suffer, usually in health or mental upset of some kind. To live consciously in balance we use ZEAL along with WISDOM, and in this way great things can be achieved
Charles Fillmore in the Revealing Word writes
“Zeal is the mighty force that incites the winds, the tides, the storms; it is the urge behind all things: Zeal is the affirmative impulse of existence, Its command is to “Go Forward.”
at the age of 94 he wrote:
“I fairly sizzle with zeal and enthusiasm and spring forth with a mighty faith to do the things that ought to be done by me.”
Join us on Sundays 9.30 am for Silent Sanctuary Meditation and at 10.30 am to hear more on” Zeal “and “Finding Comfort.”
