Ode to UCP by David Glass

Our souls need education
Just to find out who we are.

Our Lights must be uncovered
to see clearly where we are.

Our journey without distance
from head to heart and back

reveals a Wealth within us
With no limit and no lack.

A Fullness without measure
Overflows with Love and cheer,

The Mystery of History - Happy 40th Anniversary to Unity Center of Peace

40TH-Celebration-Instagram-Pos_20240528-205717_1

   Can we celebrate our Center history by acknowledging our sometimes awkward survival story and at the same time bear witness to our magnificent growth and achievements The answer 

    How could a fragmented band of “religious outcasts,” some 40 years ago, help create the transformation (or reformation) that is our current spiritual creation ?   Good question…. Creating spiritual community from scratch is no mean feat.  If we had a “soul witness” to a 40-year saga of creating the manifested spiritual community, it would record both highs and lows, punctuated by struggles and degrees of pain as well as undeniable spiritual achievement.

    Some history reads like fiction; this is one of them.  If truth-be-told (and please let’s do so), the 40 year history of the Unity Center of Peace  is a tru-story that bears a legacy to many versions of participant memory.  It’s not a seamless account of manifest destiny revealed by a band of God’s “favored people.”  The UCP story contains angst and pain and a few wounds to account-for, amid deserved gratitude for numerous forebearers whose tenacity enabled spiritual flowers to bloom.

   This is a pre and post regale of a spiritual community’s emergence.  Legions of pilgrims have sung, danced and prayed under this banner, each bringing themselves to the table for a spell, short or long.  “We are one” we chanted before closing with the refrain: “and so it is !”  What is the glue that binds this saga of a book about inner peace, service and gratitude?  How does a fledging group of souls join together to create community when their common thread is one of disparity and religious confusion

There's No Messiah! And You're It! Tikkun Olam! by David Glass

tikkun-olam-imag_20240410-174455_1
 
 
Recently Pat Webster presented a Sunday message on:  "There's No Messiah! And You're It!"  As Pat explained, this phrase is from the title of a book by Robert Levine, Senior Rabbi at the largest Jewish Temple on the Upper West Side of Manhattan.  Her "longer title' helps convey a more complete appreciation of her message overall.  That longer title is:  
 
"There's No Rabbi!  There's No Messiah!  And You're It!  Practicing Acts of Kindness to Repair the World through 'Tikkun Olam! as the Messiahs Who We All Are."  
 
The phrase, "Tikkun Olam," is from the classic Hebrew, as is the term, 'Messiah."  In the Unity Metaphysical Dictionary, Rev. Pat explained, the term "Messiah" means "one who is endowed with a special mission, goal, or purpose."  In that sense, Pat declares, we all are Messiahs, and among our special missions is to serve in harmony with Tikkun Olam and practice acts of loving kindness to repair the world.

A Warm Embrace of Open Spirituality

Gaines-1

As any human bean who can read-or-write knows only too well, our electronic world does not need more information. “Inundation” is not strong-enough a descriptor…. !

     So what, pray tell (*), is the rationale for a Unity Center of Peace =BlogIn Gaino’s not-so-humble opinion, this here is a time and place to kinda go-deeper and listen to some subconscious material that our wonderous Sunday talks & music invigorate.  Y’all know full-well what  is meant….

    At the risk of making a mild generalization, it’s safe to claim that most of us unity-pickers have done battle with organized religion and lost.  The stories seem to re-appear without end and often carry an edge of anger or latent frustration.  If one were to begin an open-ended question: “How did you come to Unity ?, the responses would, no doubt, support this generalization.  We have some religious history in-common, it seems….  We have landed in a warm embrace of open spirituality.

      During the past two years, while attending the “down the hall in the Chapel” Deeper Dive, this scribe has noted something-of-interest to the “right brain.” (Wanta guess ?).  Every single one of us New Thought types (even Ault) have a deep-seated need and desire to tell our back-story.  The truth. 

    Without as much as a whispered inquiry,  many UCP members love to share their story regarding how, when and where they “got here…”.  A decent psychologist, or shrink, would immediately identify this phenomenon as “latent spiritual identification arising from over-stimulation of the subliminal heart chakra.”                                                                                     Please continue…..

Rev. Victoria’s Thoughts on the Israeli / Hamas War

Planet-Eart_20231013-144807_1

Is your heart hurting as a result of the violent conflict in the Middle East? I know mine is. First, I understand Hamas to be a terrorist organization, which carried out a brutal terrorist attack on hundreds of innocent people. They do not represent mainstream Palestinians. And of course, there is history there. The response from Israel comes from the old consciousness of "an eye for an eye."  This is the consciousness of the whole region, and the conflict won't change until consciousness changes. And our hearts go out to all the people caught up in this - many of whom, on both sides, want peace desperately. 

Some are wondering if the affirmation we say together at the beginning of our service is still appropriate. The affirmation is: There is only one Presence and one Power active in the universe and in my life, God the good omnipotence.  It might be hard to see God's omnipresent good at work in this situation, if not impossible. And on the human level it isn't true.  But are we just human beings?  No! We, in spiritual community, know we are Divine beings having a human experience, right? Unfortunately, too few others know this to be true. 

Humanity, historically asleep to the truth of their being – and that of others – “create their own evils”, as Emerson would say. Most people live in fear of the "other" and judge others, judge other religions as wrong, other ways of living is wrong. From a human-only consciousness of separation, humanity can do some pretty horrible things, and has for eons. And that won't change until we realize who we really are. We are all emanations of the One Divine Light...every single one of us. 

So, the affirmation...like all spiritual affirmations...is affirming the Spiritual Truth. Would we want to affirm the human truth? No, there's enough of that. We are affirming the Truth that God is all, we are that One expressing, and so is everyone else.  There is omnipresent good, if we would but see it, and call it forth.  And it is our work to do this! We don’t want to succumb to the collective consciousness of separation. We must align ourselves with Divine Light, and seek to live from a place of love...to share that with others.  Let us together pray that energy of love is being felt by those we are praying for - people caught up in the conflict, and for political leaders. We pray hearts open, consciousness is evolving, and the Divine presence is allowed to manifest in all of us. We pray from a place of peace, for peaceful hearts, and peaceful actions.

I hope you will join Rev. Ana Quintana for her workshop Peace is a Daily Practice, this Sunday at 1:00 in the Sanctuary, to learn how to stay centered in the energy of love and peace.

Gifts of Surrender

Surrender-2

At the end of every year, Unity Center of Peace hosts a burning bowl ceremony. It’s a time to reflect on our life and to see what thoughts and beliefs are getting in the way of living a life of our choosing. For me, it’s usually some limiting belief I have about myself that I want to release. This past year as Rev. Victoria was guiding us through a meditation, I realized how I was seeing myself as this small self, lacking the ability to live and contribute in ways so important and meaningful to me. What? Me, small? I knew self-doubt could wash over me, but I never thought of myself as small. And yet, this is what was revealed through deeper reflection. I also realized in these moments that this view of myself was robbing me of the joy and freedom that I so desperately wanted as guideposts for my life.

Why Our Anger Can Mean We're Growing

anger-and-growt_20220223-185644_1

 As an active member of Unity Center of Peace and a person who’s been spiritually curious for years, I’m used to paying attention to my emotions. I’ve learned to see them as signals of something going on within me that needs understanding and compassion. 

Lately, however, I’ve been experiencing harsh emotions that have surprised me. Like when a neighbor walking their dog turns around when they see me and my AmStaff (aka pit bull) pup approaching, I get angry. A whole narrative forms in my mind about their assumptions and judgment. And when I feel like my opinion isn’t getting the attention it deserves, I feel slighted and my tone can get aggressive.

Practice and Discipline by Teddy Diggs

balance-image

On the journey to deepen our relationship with God, one of the most powerful ways for us to commune with Spirit is through a disciplined spiritual practice. These practices are many and can vary from the simple (but powerful) gift of gratitude to affirmations, deep meditation, contemplation and many more. In any pursuit, a spiritual practice reveals the key that unlocks the gates of heaven and allows us the opportunity to recognize God’s innate qualities on Earth. When we consistently engage in our practice, we demonstrate a deep commitment to our spiritual growth. Commitment to spiritual growth is not an easy path, and  it takes more than irregular  practice or a Sunday service to see lasting and impactful vibrational changes. Spirit is a way of life; and a powerful way to live that is filled with self-love, self-respect and constant surrender that results in personal freedom and liberation. Disciplined practice allows us to be available to Spirit and supports our alignment with the divine flow of the Universe.

Cosmically Supported

shivaShortly after we played the Lullaby by Billy Joel music video, Facebook knocked many of you off the livestream. They eventually took the feed down.  We are so sorry about that.  Lesson learned for us.  Because my talk was a two-parter, I wanted to post the talk here so you don’t miss anything. 

On June 20-21 we had a unique combination of significant celestial events including the Summer Solstice, a solar eclipse and a new moon, among other things. So, it was a very auspicious day to have offered our first Sacred Gathering service outdoors. And a very energetically powerful place to offer it – our Spiral Labyrinth

Sacred Metamorphoses

signs of spiritual transformationMetamorphosis is a sacred moment!  It describes the incomprehensible transformation between a precursor life form and its successor.   When a caterpillar is prompted to attach itself to a limb and start spinning its chrysalis, it doesn’t know that it will literally dissolve physically and then somehow the molecules in the resulting goo will reshape it into a gorgeous winged being that will touch deeply the hearts of humans whom it will later encounter.

Staying in the Middle

meditationThis morning, I found a meditation written and posted by Buddhist teacher Pema Chodron called, "Staying in the Middle."  She wrote, 

“Becoming intimate with the queasy feeling of being in the middle of nowhere only makes our hearts more tender.  When we are brave enough to stay in the middle, compassion arises spontaneously.  By not knowing, not hoping to know, and not acting like we know what’s happening, we begin to access our inner strength.”

Taken for Granted

This guy was incredibly fit, always taking marathon hikes and bike rides!  He died on a long bike ride.  He’s too young for something like that to happen.  Isn’t he??  I’m in a state of shock, just trying to process that news.  I can’t imagine what our friend must be going through!

Your Reimagined Self

We can choose to view this time as a "sacred time-out" -- an opportunity to re-evaluate our usual way of being and perhaps evolve to our next level of expression.  And if we want to be ready to emerge from this pandemic as our best “Butterfly Self” we want to prepare now.  We must use this "cocooning time" to invest in personal and spiritual growth.  Here is your guide for doing that:

The Power of A Minute

crystal bowlsOne of the primary shifts of awareness that accompanies spiritual growth in Unity is learning where power lies in Truth.  We learn, for example, to trust our ideas and words to create physical manifestation—not what most of us grew up learning, but absolute Truth nevertheless. 

Well-known 20th century Unity teacher Mary Kupferle wrote about "Minute Prayers".  She was teaching us the consistent power of a minute of thought directed to the same idea repeatedly.

Praying it Forward

Here are some beautiful assertions to say, reflect on, and wear this weekend and going forward.  

As I read these statements, I’m wearing a top that I haven’t worn in a long time—a lighter weight piece of clothing, flowery and flowing.  

Since I put this top on this morning, I’ve been trying to figure out whether I like the feeling of wearing it.  It’s comfortable enough—but do I like the me that I feel like with it on?

malaThis afternoon, one of our spiritual groups in Paris met on Zoom.  It was a wonderful opportunity to learn what is going on half way across the world, as we are beginning to learn how our awareness is changing over this time.  

I found it beautiful and surprising that with each of us in our own space, with individual hearts and minds,some very similar thoughts are coming to all of us, of whatever age or nationality.

Acting, Not Reacting

stonesMost humans are reacting most of the time. If we reflect on this process, it becomes clear that energetically, when we react to something, we hold its energy and  vibration in our consciousness.  We know from the power of ideas and words, that the thoughts and feeling we welcome into our consciousness keep the same energy reproducing in our experience. When we are reacting anxiously to a threat, we are inviting more of that threat to persist in our lives.  This vibration and attracting then perpetuates itself in our life.

Fearless Living in a Time of Contagion - Reflections for Positive Envisioning

unity2How many people do you know who aren’t just a little scared right now?  The antidote to fear is to replace anxiety producing thoughts by imagining repeatedly what we actually want to see rather than what we fear, even if that’s a challenge.  First, we need to remember our good and loving God/ Universe. Then we need to state positively what we want to experience, and deny all power over our minds to any negative ideas.
