Prescription for Courage

Rise up; this matter is in your hands. We will support you, so take courage and do it. Ezra 10:4

When you are facing something that seems difficult, turning it over to God and then letting go of it can give you great support. Acknowledging our human ego efforts and choosing to trust God to take over knowing that only good can come from the challenge. Sometimes the ego needs training wheels to keep it on track so using an affirmation of what you would like to be experiencing can help focus it. We give thanks in advance for an outcome of the highest and best without attachment to a specific result. Amen.
This is a prescription that I have created and use to the best of my ability.

GOP Convention

I felt called to share a prayer through this blog that would reach those that I have yet to meet and come to love as well as all that I hold dearly in my heart. As things heat up on the political scene, each of us can be a force for good, instead of getting caught up in the fear and anger statements fueling the drama. Whenever you find yourself wanting to take sides, go with in and seek the peace and divine order, put Spirit in charge and come from love and clarity to hold the high watch for the country.

My heartfelt prayer is for you to go with in and listen to Spirit’s guidance in regard to the affairs of the political situation of this country. As we first enfold ourselves with the peace and divine order for ourselves. Then enfold the politicians and the entire country with a blanket of love. That we may know the truth beyond the anger and rebuttals. That we come from love in all we think, say and do, that is the true prayer as we hold the high watch for ourselves and our beloveds on our prayer list. It is done. Amen

Thanks in advance to those who feel called to join me in this. Feel free to add your prayers in the discussion section.

A Simple Act of Forgiveness

Is this another one of ‘those’ forgiveness processes? I don’t think so. I will let you decide. Yes, there appear to be a gazillion of them and… that is because there are gazillions of us! Each of us gets to discover what works best. As one of my mentors said once, “As long as you have skin on, you have forgiveness work to do.

I was at a bowling alley recently and learned how to adjust the scoreboard if someone bowls an extra ball by mistake. You press the button that says ‘Remove Frame’ and then press the red one which resets the score board. Unity’s co-founder, Charles Fillmore, defines forgiveness as giving up something.” When you forgive yourself, you cease doing the things you should not do….It is through forgiveness that true spiritual healing is accomplished.” We give up old thoughts of error and refresh our minds with words of Truth which is all that is good and the highest and best out come for all concerned. Thus resetting the scoreboard.

Remember that we are not condoning our behavior or that of another. The behavior that occurred is not who we truly are: We are whole and perfect children of God, worthy and deserving of our good. Sometimes we put a frame around our errors and mistakes, even creating a gold frame which creates guilt from being hard on ourselves.

In the Unity teachings we use the phrase, ‘release and let go’, often. Now, let’s apply the metaphysics of adjusting the scoreboard in bowling. This is as simple as sending a text. When you want to forgive yourself or another, press the ‘Remove Frame’ button to let go of the framed picture you have created. Press the red button which we can see in the shape of a heart. Infuse the situation with love and the highest and best outcome for all. Check in with your breathing, counting in 3 seconds and out from your diaphragm.

The wings represent the freedom we can experience when we release the weight of a situation from our lives. Is there a scoreboard with God? Of course, not! Our egos are what keep score. We begin the bowling game of life anew with a clean slate anytime we choose to ‘release the frame’ and press the red love button!

The forgiveness definition was excerpted from Unity’s ‘The Revealing Word’ metaphysical definitions.
