Practical Spirituality for a Modern Life
Dear Fellow Travelers on the Path.
2017 is here and with it, over the last few weeks, time to reflect on the events of last year.
How quickly it seemed to go, and how quickly we are thrust into what is shaping up to be a fulfilling year on all levels in our life, if we take time to plan it so.
This year in our Unity planning we have decided to study the Unity “12 Powers,” over the months they are allocated in the Unity Teachings.
These are available in the book “The Twelve Powers of Man” by Charles Fillmore.
January is traditionally the month allocated to FAITH.
“Faith is a Spiritual faculty” Charles Fillmore writes, “It is not necessary that the one who touches the button of faith shall understand all the intricate machinery with which he makes contact. They know, like the one who turns the electric switch, that light will spring forth.”
Fillmore goes on to say “merely affirming the activity of this superpower will quicken it in consciousness. He also mentions that metaphysically, the Disciple Peter represents Faith, and that the Faith Centre in our body is the Pineal Gland, which opens the mind of man to Spiritual Faith.
The Metaphysical Bible Dictionary is a great source of wisdom for further information on this.
Eric Butterworth writes “Faith is really your consent to let your own uniqueness unfold, and let that which is attracted by your own uniqueness manifest in your life. So when Jesus said “all things are possible to those that believe, he did not say that a swan could be a duck, or that a non musical person could be a concert pianist. You cannot become something that is not the out forming of your own inner potential. You can only be you - however yo can unfold more of the you that may have been long frustrated.”
There are other definitions of Faith. The easiest to grasp (for me) is perhaps from a Unity Children’s book THE SIMPLE TRUTH by Mary-Alice and Richard Jafolla. “Faith is acting upon what we really believe - whatever we really believe in, we will act upon.We have faith in it.
Finally, why not believe that when we learn to have Faith in ourselves, we are learning to have Faith in the very wisdom that created us.
