April 17, 2011 – Manifest Your Abundant Destiny

4/17/11 Reverend Larry Wynn

“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. 
For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened.” (Matthew 7, 7-8). Say, “That’s for me. It’s mine. I’m going to own it.” Our present reality can change. Q: How? A: Consciousness.

Our 20202 Vision will manifest by all holding collectively the consciousness that it is already done. Often the only limitation we have is in our own mind. Celebrate what is within and draw it forth to energize a heightened awareness.

First ask, opening the universe to possibility.
Next seek. We went looking for a new vision. “What is Spirit calling us to be?”
Then knock (many stop at dreaming). See how others do it. How can it be done?
Now the door is open. Will we step through into our vision?

Eric Butterworth, in Spiritual Economics, says there is no such thing as God’s will, or God’s timing. God doesn’t dish out favor(s). All favor is present now. Depth of consciousness is what we need. We sometimes see a gap from where we are to where we want to be. Depth of consciousness is how we bridge that gap. Spirit Itself does the work. It’s working all the time. You only choose positive or negative results. Henry Ford said “Whether you think you can or you think you can’t, you are right.” Have courage to act. One step. Another step. We are divine beings living in this physical life. It is wonderful to “know why I showed up now; and why I am showing up.”

We have been given a new lush garden, bigger. We have been given more. Are we stuck in our old limitations? Be willing to step into that space of our 2020 Vision.
What stories will be heard from Unity of Walnut Creek!!!

April 10, 2011 – Be Gentle With Yourself

4/10/11 Reverend David McArthur

We often spend time in self talk using words like “dumb” or “stupid”, “lazy”,”weak”. But is there anything that is not a part of the spiritual process? When something happens again and again where we clearly see what we are not doing, it’s part of something unfolding. Jesus represents that pattern within us all where we get to see where we are not yet living. It’s a greater truth, a pattern that takes us to the awakened being, the Christ consciousness.

The experience when Jesus went through his awakening is when John baptized him. Jesus came up from the water and saw Spirit come to him as a dove, and he heard, “This is my Son in Whom I am well pleased.” That was when Jesus really knew he was a child of God. He knew then He was of love and grace. Then He went out into the desert for purification, and was “ tempted by the devil”– that part of Himself that was still caught in the 3D sleep. He confronts that part of himself when His attention is drawn to His hunger, in the third dimension. But then He turns His attention back to the divine, the Spirit in Him, by rebuking “the devil”. Then He did His ego thing, looking at the wealth of the “city” that He could have, but again He refused. From the mountain top he sees His power (ego), but once again He turns to the spiritual. Then angels came and ministered to Him.

It’s a pattern. We get to see where we are not yet living– a greater truth. We get to see deeper within– parts not yet enlightened. It’s a journey, and being judgmental on yourself doesn’t work. Be gentle with yourself on the journey. Open to the gentle loving care of the divine. See where you aren’t yet. The fear– the unenlightened part. Turn to ask the help of the divine. Let in the gentleness. Let the angels minister to you. The angels bring that which takes us to the completion, to the place where once we were not.

We get asked to grow in consciousness. It is not always gentle. When the vision comes we can be judgmental on ourselves. Be gentle. The gentleness lets in the growth in consciousness. The head can explain in detail why not. It’s the gentleness in your heart which will lift you up. Are you willing to be gentle with yourself? Say, “I am willing to be gentle with myself.” “I am willing to be gentle with myself.”

And that which happens in you is a part of the consciousness that is awakening throughout the world. Let the angels minister to you. Open to the gentle loving care of the divine. That which happens in us can lift us all to the Awakened Being, the Christ consciousness.

April 3, 2011 – What Is Your Story?

4/3/11 Reverend David McArthur

We share our stories to connect and find out what’s going on. They change when we awaken to who we are – spiritual beings of power and purpose. You are not simply a victim of the 3D world. You have the power to call forth in life those things that are important to your heart. The way that Spirit tells you what is important is a call to your heart. The heart tells us what is important in our lives. Telling our stories is how we bring forth the power and potential into our lives. Create an affirmation to tell the story that is consistent with your heart. Say yes.

But it also takes expression – action. When you step into something new it asks you to stretch. Choosing to embrace the story on your heart asks you to change. You are free to create what you want – to turn it down or to go on. What’s the story on your heart where you affirm that you do not have the power, that the world controls you? How many times have you manifested that you’re almost, but not quite. If you grab hold of Infinite Power be ready to change and open to the power. Choose to tell a different story – the one in your heart – not the one of limitations.

God’s very nature is wholeness. You cannot have the manifestation of the part without the rest being in it. Yet you affirm limitation. What if the heart knows the wholeness of others, the wisdom and blessing in and of them? We create the world around us. Do we see problems, or do we see that we are in the midst of the greatest experience that mankind has ever had? That you’ve waited lifetimes to be here and birth this new consciousness of love and harmony? That you are one with Infinite Wisdom and choose to bring forth a world of love, harmony and wisdom? What do you want to call forth? What is on your heart? What we’re creating is so wonderful it’s worth all of us showing up! What’s your story?!!!
