Unity: Wishing you a happy new year

We are coming into a brand new year, 2015, with great expectation. What is it that you want to see in your life as this year unfolds? Would you have more peace, love, plenty, health, joy and wisdom? If these are the desires of your heart then you can be happy for you already have them. If you don’t know that you have them you must look to your thoughts and words to find where you are blocking your gifts. A Unity acronym, T.P.M., which stands for ‘This Present Moment’ can open up your understanding of the relationship of your thoughts to the world that you perceive. Take a deep breath and as you exhale just feel the peace and the comfort in This Present Moment. Examine your thoughts periodically to check yourself out and see if you are thinking loving, compassionate, non-judgmental and positive thoughts. If not, gently release any negative thoughts and come back to your God-centered thinking. Remember, we perceive our world from what is happening on the inside and not what we think we see on the outside. We all need to take more deep breaths, release what holds us back and step into the New Year knowing we are one in God, beloved and holy, guided and blessed and overflowing with peace, love, plenty, health, joy and wisdom. And that’s the Truth!
