Practical Spirituality for a Modern Life

 

Portrait of Rev. William Livingston, Minister Unity of Melbourne
Welcome to Unity of Melbourne!

 

Greetings Fellow Traveler’s on the Path,

 

 

We have been following The Twelve Powers and this month (July) the Power is:   Understanding

   

The Power for the Month of July is UNDERSTANDING. This is represented by the disciple THOMAS.

The colour is GOLD and the position in the body is the FRONT BRAIN.

 

Charles Fillmore in his reference to the Power of Understanding states that the dictionary shows the words Wisdom, Understanding, Knowledge and Intelligence are so “closely related that their definitions overlap in a most confusing way.”

One definition of understanding in the dictionary (used as a verb) is given as “perceive the intended meaning of (words, a language, or a speaker) as in “She understood what he was saying.”

 

There are two ways to understand understanding. I can go within and listen for the wisdom of Spirit, or I can go my own way and learn by trial and error, as I have very often done in the past.

It is a joy to know that “within me there is a knowing capacity transcending intellectual knowledge”

(The Revealing Word).

 

This month we are studying Chapter Eight from LESSONS IN TRUTH by H.Emilie Cady.

The Chapter is called SPIRITUAL UNDERSTANDING and we invite you to study this with us and answer the questions at the end of the chapter.

I recommend that you also read “The Twelve Powers of Man” by Charles Fillmore. There are also questions in the back of this book all pertaining to the Power of the Month ... UNDERSTANDING

 

I finish with three quotes from The book of Proverbs.

 

“With all thy getting, get understanding.”   (Proverbs 4 : 7)

“A man of understanding has wisdom.”     (Proverbs 10 : 23)

“Understanding is a wellspring of Life.”     (Proverbs 16 : 22)

                 

 

 

 

  Blessings

Rev. William Livingston
