Practical Spirituality for a Modern Life
Greetings Fellow Traveler’s on the Path,
Welcome already to the month of March 2018.
Greetings from Unity of Melbourne.
The Power for the month of March Is WISDOM- JUDGMENT.
It is represented by JAMES the son of Zebedee.
The colour is YELLOW, and it’s location is the SOLAR PLEXUS.
Judgment is my ability to discern, evaluate, and make decisions.
Judgment allows Divine Wisdom to flow through me.
DENIAL : “I release any pressure of decision making.”
AFFIRMATION : “God as Divine Wisdom is bringing to light my perfect direction.”
Many people round the world (especially in the mainstream Christian Churches) are in the middle of celebrating what is called the Lenten Season. This lasts over forty days leading up to Palm Sunday which( this year 2018) is on the 25th March. This is not mentioned in the Bible as such but was introduced by the early Christian Church as being symbolic of the time Jesus spent in the desert preparing for his mission as “The Christ.”
The number 40 represents a time of completeness…and the desert metaphysically represents a state of seeming lack…”a dark night of the soul.”
During Christmas we can symbolically give birth to the “Christ Child” within. Between Christmas and Lent we can allow this new idea of self to take hold. We nurture it, giving expression to it, by aiming to give up that which does not support our inner journey of expanded consciousness. Often we start off well intentioned, but somehow along the way we tend to become like a spider caught up in its own web. We can now during Lent take time to unravel ourselves from the results of our own thinking that has kept us from experiencing the “fruits of the spirit” which are “Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness and Self Control.”
We may not be able to pray and physically fast for 40 days and nights as Moses, Elijah, Jesus and other Way Showers have, but we can use the spiritual tools of Denials and Affirmations constantly, over Lent ( or at any other time) to control our thinking in line with Spirit. (Universal Spiritual Law.)
This month we reflect on chapter three in “Lessons in Truth” by H.Emilie Cady. This chapter is appropriately called “Thinking.” What a power we have. It matters not what beliefs our thoughts accept, if we constantly entertain them, we will bring them into our experience.
As we often sing in our Sunday Gathering
“I am the thinker who thinks the thoughts - That changes the things that shape my life -
I am the thinker who thinks the thoughts - I have the power to change my life.
