HAPPY NEW YEARS!
The new year began at 12:00 am Saturday night. Lots of resolutions were probably and probably broken before the end of the day on Sunday, January 1, 2017! I stopped making them years ago, with the exception of one: “To be the best Christ I could.” I think I made a good step in that direction this year by taking back up my journey towards ordination in the Unity Ministerial program, being active in my local Unity Church, teaching several classes there, and starting this Newsletter. I hope you have made a commitment to be the best Christ you can be in this year of 2017. There will likely be situations that test our faith. One can make book on that. What ever that challenge is, remember, YOU HAVE A CHOICE HOW YOU WILL REACT
WHAT IS PROSPERITY
Almost daily I get advertisements in my email telling me I can be rich just by the power of my thought! I hear ads on SeriusXM telling me if I call in right now, they will send me a free book telling me how to get filthy rich flipping real estate, with no credit, no money, no effort, by Judy buying up real estate and then reselling it.
It is true that we can manifest unexpected money, a raise at work, win the lottery, all with the power of our thought. Then there are the TV and radio preachers who promise you that if you send them money, “God will bless you mightily, good measure, pressed down, and running over!”
I have no doubt these things are possible, but in. Great majority of those cases, the person will go through the money so quickly it would make your head spin! The reason is they wanted to be rich, and nothing else. In Unity, we too believe that we can create prosperity with the power of our thought. BUT, we look at prosperity differently. To us prosperity means having our basic needs met, with some left to afford us some of life’s pleasures.
Through the power of positive prayer we can count on the Spirit to place opportunities in our life to attain prosperity. But, we need to be vigilant. We need to watch for the opportunities that are out there, and have the faith in God that he/she will provide for us.
Eric Butterworh aid in his book “Spiritual Economics” he speaks of being wealthful. By that he means establishing ourselves in those things conducive to prosperity. We need to turn away from thoughts of lack, ,layoffs, terminations and limitations. “For as ye think so shall ye be!” You need to expose yourself constantly in thoughts of ample supply. Think prosperity. Think substance. Think of affluence. Your life will be influenced by the kinds of thoughts that rule your mind and manifest Lin your world.
Every thought sets up vibrations. You need to align those vibrations wit the quantum field of infinite possibilities. When you align the thoughts with the vibrations of prosperity, you collapse the field on prosperity, and that is what you are drawn to in the external world.
As Butterworth says, “Can you accept Emmerson’s dictum that you were born to inevitably be rich, or to grow rich by your faculties? If not you are hung up on the age old confusion of godliness with poverty. Lack and limitation of any kind are aberrations in a universe of opulence. Any person who is experiencing lack is living in opposition to GODS UNIVERSAL LAW.
