As we here at Unity by the Shore, “journey through” the Lenten Season, we are called to look deeply into our individual lives, see what needs to be released-let go of. It’s about changing your consciousness so that the Truth of who you are can live to its fullest expression. It requires that you let go of illusions held within your human personality and bring the Light of Christ, your divinity, into your humanness. This revelation of Oneness can be experienced through prayer and meditation-also by practicing Truth Principles in your everyday life experiences.
You may think “Oh, it all “sounds” good but I’m nowhere close to being able to achieve “revelation”! But as Charles Fillmore, in his classic book “Keep a True Lent”, says that it is a season of spiritual growth – A TIME FOR PROGRESSIVE UNFOLDMENT.” “Progressive” – the dictionary defines it as a “moving forward”, “continuing by successive steps”. Oh, there will be “crucifixion” challenges, but that’s part of the “Easter Journey” which results in “resurrection” – a raised consciousness and realization of your TRUE SELF in which lives love, wisdom, power and freedom! It is the “unfoldment” of the beautiful beloved child of God that you are!
What can you do during this Lenten season? My suggestion is that you learn to love yourself right here, right NOW!
May you “spring” in Joy!
A Very Blessed Easter!

As I write this for our Jan-Feb. newsletter, snow is on the ground and Christmas will soon be here. And, then before we know it, we will be preparing for Easter with the preparatory practice of the Lenten season. On the outer, life seems to be one of “coming and going”– always anticipating the next “celebratory”
experience and hoping that life will become more prosperous and problem-free. But Life is not about running about the world trying to find satisfaction in the outer… we are to make Peace our FIRST goal. Charles Fillmore, co
-founder of Unity, defines life as the expression of BEING. He tells us that life is not a period of time. Life IS. Life does not come and go. Life can neither be created nor destroyed. Life is divine and spiritual. We were created for happy, successful, healthy, prosperous living! How do we experience that? As the song says “It’s All Inside Us.”
Let us join together as a Spiritual Community to discover the Christ consciousness within each one of us and TOGETHER in our ONENESS, we can let our Light shine!
“We were created for happy, successful, healthy,, prosperous living! How do we experience that? As the song says “ It’s All Inside Us.”
