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.
AUGUST is the time we are learning about the Power of Will.
Last month the power was UNDERSTANDING. WILL and UNDERSTANDING go hand in hand.
Charles Fillmore writes, “We do not need less WILL, we need more UNDERSTANDING.”
As we use the God Power in us (not the old man up in the sky) understanding reveals to us that we are the ones deciding what shows up in our lives. We do this through our thoughts ~ words ~ Feelings and actions. Whether we know it or not we are creating our own experiences.
From what perspective are we using this willpower?
In our Unity Basics Class we have been using the book The Five Principles by Ellen Debenport We learn we are :
BODY…Our space suit.
EGO…which gives us faces & confidence to function in the physical world.
SOUL…an eternal, individualized creation that grows, learns and seeks ever closer union with God.
SPIRIT…Present in everything, everyone everywhere, the essence of who we are.
Unity Principle Three states:
“Human beings create their experiences by the activity of their thinking.
Everything in the manifest realm has its beginning in thought.”
It takes an effort of Will for us to put our thoughts into action.
We have the power of WILL.
We use it at (and as) our will.
We are body ego soul spirit
Will is needed on all levels of our being.
There are Universal Laws, which keep us, and the Universe in ORDER (the power for September)
Creation would be chaos without Order.
Does our personal will reflect the Universal Law of Harmony?
We are s soul in evolution ~ not perfected ~ but perfect in our unfoldment.
We are evolving and learning how to put the Twelve Powers into action ~ and as we evolve we WILL to get understanding and full meaning of what Way showers have been saying forever ~
“Not my will but thy will be done.” (Luke 22 : 42 )
