Going to Church

I'm staying at Unity Village, MO while I'm participating in Unity Worldwide Ministry ministry team meetings, and tomorrow is Sunday.  Since I'm not speaking at Unity of Fairfax, I have the opportunity to go to church as a congregant - a rare privilege for a minister.  So now I have to decide where to worship in the morning, and I'm grateful for the internet in helping me to make a decision.

What is Happiness?

Everyone wants to be happy, right?  But there really isn't consensus on what happiness actually is.  To some, it would be the possession of things; to others, the experience of love; to some it might be the knowledge that one's life makes a difference in the world.  The list could go on and on, and for each of us, the definition of happiness might change over time - or even over the course of a day!

Rising Above Judgments

Spiritually-minded people often describe becoming non-judgmental as an ideal to which to aspire.  I certainly hold that as a vision for myself; however, trapped as we are in skin-suits on the earth plane of existence, this task sometimes seems impossible to fulfill. But that doesn't mean we stop trying.

Can I Control My Mind?

The Unity movement and the science of psychology have common roots.  Both emerged out of the cultural and scientific mileu of the last half of the 19th century; as such, both place special attention on the mind and understanding how it works.  The understanding, put very simply, is that if you understand how your mind works, you can direct its activities in order to attain your goals and aspirations.  A simple question is, "Can I control my mind."  Well, to be frank, its not a simple question.
