Practical Spirituality for a Modern Life
Greetings Fellow Traveler’s on the Path,
Welcome from all at Unity of Melbourne where this year we are studying The Twelve Powers.
The month of October leads us on in our studies of the twelve powers to ZEAL.
One dictionary definition of ZEAL is…Enthusiastic, devotion, ardor, especially for a cause.
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 “Go Forward.”
“The zeal of thy house has eaten me up.” Psalm 69 : 9.
At times we can become obsessed ( over Zealous) with a project or cause and do not give fair or equal coverage to 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 we use ZEAL along with WISDOM, and in this way great things can be achieved.
The following quote was sent to me recently. It is simple yet profound in its message:
“A man should hear a little music, read a little poetry, and see a fine picture every day of his life, in order that worldly cares may not obliterate the sense of the beautiful which God has implanted in the human soul.” - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe.
Written by Charles Fillmore at the age of 94…”I fairly sizzle with Zeal and Enthusiasm
and I spring forth with a mighty faith to do the things that ought to be done by me.”
Join in with this month as we present the POWER OF ZEAL..look up our events page on Facebook to find out who is speaking and on which aspect of Zeal they are presenting.
