In Unity we talk about how we’re all One because God is All Good and Everywhere Present, and if God is everywhere present, then God is in me and I am in God. We are made in the image of God; we have a spark of divinity within us and therefore are inherently Good. We are that spark. And, since we are made in the Image, whatever your personal definition of God is, you are That. And, whatever you believe about God is what you are creating in your life, because you are that as well. We create from what we already are.
Let that sink in for a moment, because that is not only the basis for how you live, move, and have your being as you are on this planet earth, but it is the Creative Process in action: Mind, Idea, Expression; or Father, Son, Holy Spirit. If your definition of God is anything other than all-good, change it right now, because this is the foundation for everything you’re creating. This is why we say “co-create” – God is in the midst of everything!
You might not be able to believe your new-and-improved definition of God right away, but in Unity we say, “fake it, ‘til you make it”. You’ll get there! . . . This is the time, the hour has come, the moment is now. So, if God is Good and Everywhere Present, and I am created in that Image, then I Am Good. Right? Say that out loud, “I Am Good”. So when I “Claim my Good”, I am only effectively doing that AS MY GOOD. . . . Keep thinking about what your definition of God is, keep refining it, focusing it all right into the center of your being. From that place, Create.
Maybe you want to Create more money in your life. Same thing, money is just energy like everything else. Financial Prosperity is Good! It allows us to do the work that needs to be done! It allows us to work our purpose. If we don’t have to be constantly concerned with material life, because the energy of money is working in our lives, than our brains can shift out of survival mode, and into creating the Good we want to claim, because we will be able to more easily have an experience of ourselves as that Good. So, don’t downplay the spiritual importance of money.
Maybe you want to Create more compassionate acts of kindness in the world? In that case, the answer is to Be Compassion. Center your thoughts on compassion and act from that place. You will see it out-pictured into your world. Praise leads to Gratitude, leads to Love, leads to Compassion. By Being It, you are Creating It!
Hope to see you Sunday when we can Be It in community!
