REFLECTIONS with Rev Bill.

“We being many are one body in Christ, and every one member’s one of another.”

(Romans 12: 5)

There comes a time in our awareness that we realize that everything that has happened to us in the past, joy, sorrow, pleasure and pain are all part of our spiritual growth in this mystery school of life. Wherever we find ourselves at the moment is where we are meant to be. What we are experiencing right now is exactly what we need for our soul’s journey.

In an earlier part of my life, I read about a mysterious secret abbey in the Andes, and hidden ashrams in the Himalayas. Maybe this was where I could gain “spiritual awakening”?

My life at that time was the out picturing of earlier dreams, a lesson in itself as proof of the power of my thoughts, only then I did not realize the significance of this.

At that time, I never made it to these “outer” ashrams and abbey, but was lead to a book that included the statement “The only way out is in”. After some contemplation, I understood that this was referring to the mystery school within myself. It is here through meditation and contemplation; I perceived that I AM GOD IN ACTION. What a responsibility. I AM RESPONSIBLE FOR WHAT I AM RIGHT NOW.

We can read many books and meditate alone, but it is in dealing with our fellow travelers in the ups and downs of living that we gain the practical experience of living and working out the truth we have uncovered within ourselves. Unconditional Love in particular!

I feel we can call where we are at the moment a mystery school, not only inside us, but also in the hustle and bustle of the market place of life, interacting work wise and socially with people of differing beliefs and cultures. Here we become practical mystics living the eternal life now.

                         

                        Here we can put into action The Fifth Unity Principle.

           

Knowing and understanding the laws of life, also called Truth, are not enough.

                           A person must also live the Truth that they know.

Unity: A Quest For Truth.

I was led to read this around 4 years ago. I found it a short and simple read. It was like a breath of fresh air. And gave me renewed hope.  No wonder Eric Butterworth is one of my favourite authors!

He communicates simple basic Truths; ones I find I can relate to, understand and embrace.

It came to me at a perfect time during my separation and questioning of Unity of Melbourne.

He helped me clear confusions around why I was attracted to Unity and what I was doing at, and why I was attending Unity of Melbourne. He clarified that Unity is not a Church. It is a group of fellow travellers on a scientific self-discovery and self-improvement awakening to Spirit, meeting in a trusted environment to deepen our understanding, and to support each other.  Through the metaphysical interpretations, meanings and understanding I was able to start building a real foundation on which to reenergise my thinking and regain my faith in creating my dream life.

He explained the need for a practiced spirituality. And that by thinking about some simple processes in a new way, and committing to regular practice, I would change my thinking, habits and actions. I would become aware of whether the thoughts I was feeding and giving my time and energy to, were taking me in my chosen direction. And if not, what to do about them. He educated me in the spiritual law and order that has stood the test of time and how to use this to release my own imprisoned splendour!! That the working of this lies in mans undiscovered faculty of Faith.

I was ready as I had tried many things and now had nowhere else to go but within to find an open ended stream of helpful concepts that fill this need. What is being revealed to me is ongoing and continually amazing. To begin to find the same healing power as demonstrated by Jesus, let the same mind be in me that was also in my Creator, all through self-management of my mind!!!!

Of course there have been challenges- to work through and be open to a new science of prayer which works through a new technique of spiritual healing, a new definition of prosperity, and a new definition of our Creators abundance is creating a new feeling of peace within me that “passeth all understanding!!!”

I have re-read this book at least 4 times now and am looking forward to taking my understanding and being this to a new level in this weekend’s intensive workshop on this book with Graeme Johnson at Unity of Melbourne in Burwood..  I am beginning to see and have firsthand experiences of having the courage of standing face to face with my Creator, asking the specific questions about issues I want help with, to be open to hearing His communication, feel his presence in my soul and have the Truth to my questions revealed to me.  This is now my foundation upon which I live in and I wish all those who are looking for self-empowerment and self-responsibility to experience and embrace the positives that are possible for you. After all, our Purpose for being here is to create the life and world of our dreams, isn’t it?

John Warnock.
