Thoughts from the Heart

As we enter into the season of Thanks-Giving, I have been thinking about how grateful I am for all the many ways I have been blessed in this life.  My blessings have been many, but I would like  to take some time to consider those that have been brought to me though the movement called  Unity.

I recall my first visit to Unity  Christ Church, and how I felt so grateful as I  listened to the Sunday Lesson and realized I had just found my Spiritual home. At that moment, I knew that I was truly blessed.  I even recall the first class in metaphysic I attended and the warm feelings of love I received as I listened so intently to the Ideas and information that was being imparted to me, at that time I thought, “I have surely found Heaven”.  What a marvelous feeling it was to be in a place where I felt loved and accepted unconditionally.

I am truly thankful and grateful for the inspirational writings of Charles and Myrtle Fillmore, Co-Founders of Unity.  It feels as though each time I read their words, I am lifted into another state of consciousness that I have never experienced before. It is as if they are present with me now imparting their Wisdom in a most profound way.   I find that their thoughts and words are alive with the Spirit of  the Presence  of God; and at these times I am truly grateful.

How grateful I was as I began to become aware, to know and understand that the Christ resides in the very center of my Being; and what a miracle to know that I could access this Presence Within me at anytime.  How wonderful I felt and how thankful I became as the Still Small Voice Within began to announce it Presence to me.

I am particularly grateful for all the many delightful Beings of Light I have met on my Spiritual quest; and for the awareness; understanding and knowing that they are a part of me. As I see each face reflected back to me I experience my Oneness with everyone I meet.  And for the ability to discern this connection, I give Thanks.

I am truly thankful and grated for the Presence of God Within me and the ability to feel and experience that Presence as  living in, through me and as me. I am truly thankful for my willingness to allow this to be so.

I am immensely grateful for the Grace of God that brought me to this place called Unity, because it has made all the difference in my experience of life.  And for this I give all glory to God.

So as we celebrate the season of Thanks-Giving let us take a thorough inventory of the many ways we have been blessed by Spirit and let us choose to become thankful and grateful in all things.

Let Us Daily Affirm:  I Am Thankful and Grateful in All Things.

Blessings As You Spiritually Unfold,
