Unity: Loving it all

Life is all about change and in a retirement community such as Sun Lakes, we are aware of those of us who face perhaps the most challenging changes of our lives. It can be sobering and can give us pause. But at Unity we adopt a positive attitude and life style. We believe that God, Divine Spirit, Loving Presence, is always good and nothing can separate us from our good, our God. How do we accommodate these two seemingly opposing states of thinking and being? Once, when Oprah was counseling with spiritual poet and author, Maya Angelou, Maya reminded Oprah to love the clouds in her life as they were always followed by a rainbow. Can we know that all outer situations and conditions have absolutely no power over us and that our real strength comes from the light that shines from within us? If you feel sad, allow it, but at the same time remember the rainbow that is there for you. You can love it all because it comes from the all providing, ever sustaining, eternally present, life and love of God.
