Dear <<First Name>>,
Happy New Year! At the start of the new year, I invite us to begin with a foundational Unity principle - Prayer. For three weeks, we'll be exploring Linda Martella-Whitsett's wisdom in her book How to Pray Without Talking to God.
From the book:
"We have misunderstood the great Truth about Divine Identity. We have called it 'potential' as if we have to work toward the goal of divinity. We have believed it to be conditional, as if each of us could gain or lose individual Divine Identity depending upon individual actions. We have thought we have to journey to find our Divine Identity, as if it had gotten lost or separated from us. We do not have to claim our Divine Identity in order to have Divine Identity. But what good is a Divine Identity if a person does not claim it?
"What good is a talent for music if a person never plays an instrument? The talent is intact, but it must be claimed if it would be expressed and enjoyed. Deciding not to play music does not make someone evil, nor is the person punished for that choice. The music remains in that person, latent until she chooses to express it. When will you claim your Divine Identity? When you have the choice of how to respond to someone’s hurtful remark, will you throw back angry words, or will you express Divine Life, Love, and Wisdom? When feeling tempted to judge your appearance harshly in the mirror, will you instead gaze through to the Divine Life, Love, and Wisdom reflected there? You claim your Divine Identity moment by moment, choice by choice. "
This week we'll look at our Divine Identity.
