Practical Spirituality for a Modern Life

 

Portrait of Rev. William Livingston, Minister Unity of Melbourne
Welcome to Unity of Melbourne!

 

Greetings Fellow Traveler’s on the Path,

 

During the month of October, we will cover two topics. The first is the Power for the month, which is ZEAL, and from “Lessons in Truth” by H. Emilie Cady, chapter 11 “SPIRITUAL GIFTS.”

One dictionary definition of ZEAL is…Enthusiastic, devotion, and ardor, especially for a cause.

Charles Fillmore writing in The Revealing Word writes, “Zeal is the mighty force that incites the winds, the tides, the storms; It is the urge behind all things; Zeal is the affirmative impulse of existence, its command is “Go Forward.”

At times we can become obsessed (over Zealous) with a project or cause and do not give fair or equal coverage to other basic and vital aspects of our life.

We are a trinity of Body, Mind and Spirit and if our enthusiasm for a cause creates unbalance in any of these areas, we suffer, usually in health or mental upset of some kind.

The following quote is simple yet profound in its timeless message:

A person should hear a little music, read a little poetry, and see a fine picture every day of their life, in order that worldly cares may not obliterate the sense of the beautiful which God has implanted in the human soul” - Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe 1749 - 1832.

On reading more of his quotes, I was also drawn to one that is similar to the 5th Unity Principle.

“Knowing is not enough; we must apply.

Willing is not enough; we must do.”

 It would be amiss of me not to include the well-known quote on Zeal by Charles Fillmore, who at the age of 94 wrote…

“I fairly sizzle with zeal and enthusiasm and I spring forth with a mighty faith to do the things that ought to be done by me.”

 

Look up our face book page to find out what is happening during October.

 

  Blessings

Rev. William Livingston
