We’re getting close! Only two more Sundays to prepare our hearts, minds, and souls for Easter. Charles Fillmore does not disappoint in his entry for this coming Passion Sunday in his iconic work on Lent, Keep a True Lent (included below). In using the term “Overcomer” to describe one whose process it is to embody Faith as a God-attribute, he leads us to empower ourselves to identify as Christ-consciousness. And, what could be better than that?!
To traverse our own paths while we search for meaning in the ‘muck of it’, we come to know – as the Overcomer – that the journey always leads back to Self, a realization of oneness with the divine. This process of going outside of ourselves to seek validation through the mirror of others, only to discover it right where we stand, is a beautiful love story ending with healing and divine purpose.
Affirm, “I am me, and I love me exactly as I am.”

Please enjoy this classic Unity writing as you “prepare ye the way” to know yourSelf:
The Overcomer – 5th (Passion) Sunday
An overcomer is one who recognizes the Truth of his being and is renewing his mind and body and affairs by changing his thoughts from the old mortal beliefs to the new as he sees them in Divine Mind. He is one who demonstrates the divine law, not only in surface life but in innermost consciousness. Spiritual power, mastery, and dominion are attained by the overcomer. “He that overcometh, I will give to him to sit down with me in my throne.”
The way of overcoming is, first, to place one’s self by faith in the realization of sonship, and secondly, to demonstrate it faithfully in every thought and act. One of the laws of mind is that man becomes like that with which he identifies himself. Christ is the one perfect pattern. . . . No external condition [nor] circumstance can hold man in bondage when he makes mental contact with God.
We have many blessings.
Begin to praise God for the abundance of all things; your words will crack the omnipresent ethers, and good will flow to you from every direction.
[Please, allow Fillmore’s words to be your words . . . ]
The work that I have to do as an overcomer for the world is to help establish a new race consciousness, a new heaven and a new earth, “wherein dwelleth righteousness.” By being true to my highest understanding of Truth, I never swerve to the right nor left for any reason.
“I am an overcomer, through Jesus Christ, and I rest in the realization of His grace and power.”
