Have you found your community?

Have you found your community? What does it mean to have community? Is it important to you to have friends in your life who you can rely upon and who you can even call family?

Change Your Mind And Change Your Life

Change your mind and change your life. What you are presently, in your awareness, saying the truth is, is what you are experiencing the truth to be. That is all you can be experiencing the truth to be.

The Lost Years of Jesus

  The Gospels record Jesus age twelve in the temple.  Then about age thirty at the river Jordan.  That leaves approximately seventeen years unaccounted for.  During those so-called lost years, the child “increased in wisdom and stature,” as Luke wrote.  But was it in the carpenter shop at Nazareth?  According to ancient Tibetan manuscripts, Jesus secretly withdrew from the home of Mary and Joseph at age thirteen. Young “Issa” joined a merchant caravan.  Destination: India and the Himalayas.  At Juggernaut, “the…

The Freedom of Forgiveness

“By confessing your judgments to others, you release them even more powerfully than you can by yourself. You also help establish a climate in the community in which ego is acknowledged as a natural phenomenon for all people. It comes and it goes, sometimes with anger, sometimes with sadness. You help establish an atmosphere in which no one beats himself up because he is having an ego attack. So the ego is held more lightly, and let go more easily.…

Unity Church Welcomes LGBTQ

This week I had a very enlightening conversation with a friend who has been attending Unity for quite some time.  He also is a part of the transgender community in Boulder and he was sharing with me that he felt he would like to see more of a presence and an opening for the LGBTQ community here at Unity of Boulder Spiritual Center. I actually feel that we do have a pretty strong LGBTQ attendance here at Unity of Boulder,…

Keep Calm and Chant

“…According to research done by Alfred Tomatis of the French Academy of Science and Medicine, chanting has a therapeutic effect on the individual by activating the body’s natural healing process. He recommends chanting as an aid for overcoming addictions such as smoking, drugs and alcohol. Other research conducted by Dr. Alan Watkins of the Imperial College London, reveals that while chanting the heart rate slows and blood pressure lowers; and while just listening to other voices chanting the adrenalin and…

You Are Who You Keep Seeking

“You Are Who You Keep Seeking” by Syntysche Groverland, Associate Minister at Unity of Boulder Spiritual Center “Every experience you have can be lifted up through the power of your unconditional acceptance and love. When you truly believe that you are worthy to be happy, then you will attract that from this vast and honorable Universe. Your life is always showing you how to resolve the difficulty you are experiencing but if we are living out of balance and disconnected…

Defining the Tao

Defining the Tao One of the most important spiritual works of all time is the “Tao Te Ching”, written by Chinese Master Lao Tzu.  All the information about this ancient Master (551-479 B.C.E.) is highly suspect. Even the meaning of his name is uncertain (the most likely interpretation “the Old Master). The only tangible evidence there is that he even existed is the tiny book of wisdom sayings that he left behind when he vanished, figuratively or literally as the…

Blessings for the New Year

I’m sending light and love out to all of you today! My wish for every one of you this year is that you discover the radiating light that exists within each and everyone of you.  Each of you plays…

Bring About Positive Change in Your Life

Learning to trust life’s process is quit a feat.  However, when we let go of our resistance to change and finally release the things that are falling away and are no longer working in our life, the whole world opens up to us.  When we release the need to control the outcome of our life and we learn to trust fate rather than resist it, the Holy Spirit is allowed to move in our lives.  Our surrender to Source brings…

Unity is Ringing in the New Year in Meditation

What is it you would like to accomplish in 2015? What obstacle will you finally overcome in the New Year? What positive, new outcome are you ready to manifest in your life?

Why Santa Loves Unity of Boulder

In 2010, Unity members set a goal to raise the money necessary to incorporate solar energy into their overall energy use. Along with this, Unity pursued changing all of their light bulbs to energy efficient light bulbs and they switched to using recyclable and compostable products in order to cut down on landfills.  Also, Unity researched ways to conserve on the use of water, which led to a turning down of the water pressure in certain areas, water-less urinals, and…

Oh Holy Night

Dear Friends: The Christmas story tells of those who traveled far to witness the birth of Christ. Yet, they were but a few by comparison to the multitudes who crowded into the City of Bethlehem that night. A small band indeed – wise men and shepherds realized the significance of this mystical birth. They sought the Prince of Peace. They followed the starlight that guided them to a cattle shed, beyond the traffic and noise of the city. Meanwhile, the…

Season of Gratitude

Thanksgiving is kicking off the Holiday Season.  This is a wonderful time of year, a time for reflection and a time of Thanksgiving. A time to remember and give thanks for all of the beauty in our lives like, the beautiful snow falling, the smell of wood burning in our fire places, the Flatirons, the Squirrels, the Children, and The Magic of This Season.  When we ponder the things that we are grateful for we put ourselves in alignment with the…
