I trust in the evolutionary impulse of loving goodness
In Unity, we describe faith as more than believing: It is an inner knowing. Charles Fillmore, our co-founder, taught that faith is our foundation, from which we experience our lives.
Today, if we listen to all the news we may have faith in a declining economy, struggle, debt and lack. Not very inspiring or helpful, is it.
How do we turn this around? Our practice in Unity is to spend time each day in prayer, meditation and silence. It is here we come to know God in a real and personal way, yet also active as a constant, unchanging and limitless energy. We ‘persevere in faith’ and practice.
Why? Because as we make space for God-awareness and experience, we are changed and our lives change. It is a powerful process and one that blesses all of life. Truthfully – we have to start somewhere!
Let us use our faculty of faith to tune in to the loving goodness of God. Trust that God is evident as an evolutionary impulse working through all of life, inviting us to awaken into our divinity, lived through our humanity.
My lovely friend and Unity teacher, Isabel Compton, used to say, ‘we are being done’. I must admit I struggled with this idea at first. Now, when I let God as the impulse of loving goodness express through and as me, I begin to experience Life as an evolutionary impulse that is drawing all of life into a deeper awareness of oneness and wholeness.
Life is changing everywhere. Let us see this change positively as evolution. Let us use our faith to tune into life as an evolutionary impulse of loving goodness working through us. Then we will show up in a way that others may know this too.
How is the evolutionary impulse of loving goodness expressing through you? For as you seek it, you will find it.
Enjoy the journey.
