Is It Really Worth It?

How often do we hear that we should be more mindful, more positive, do affirmations, pray, meditate and have a more dedicated spiritual practice?  If we are active in our Unity Community we probably hear it a lot, but what we might not be hearing is “Why?” Why bother with spiritual practice when there are so many other exciting things we could be doing!? This is a great question that Rev. Shad will address in this video.

Are You Content?

These are the words my husband asked me the other night out of nowhere. It’s amazing how a simple question can open the faucet and flood you with so many emotions. I didn’t answer, but the tears that filled my eyes said it all. Or did they? I know he wasn’t asking about our relationship because of the conversation we were having before this question. I sat with it. It was such an awe-inspiring question. I went back and forth with all…

I Will Carry You

“I will carry you.”  These are the words of a song I have had on repeat lately, by Michael W. Smith.  I find all the melodic rhythms and words of his music to be inspired by the greater potential of the Universe, as a way-shower of God’s Love for all of us.  During this time, I find spiritual music to be an incredible space holder for my being to stay lifted and peaceful during these difficult times in the world.  Many…

Divine Connection

Which do you desire more: Serving the wants of the ego or connecting with the Divine? Join Rev. Shad as he dives into what might be the most important question we could ever ask ourselves.

The Guiding Presence

In harmony with the Guiding Presence the sky is clear and spacious — breathing is a pleasure and the earth is a pristine habitation where all creatures flourish together, content with the way they are, endlessly repeating themselves without the fear of Man. When man rules without the Guiding Presence the sky becomes filthy, the earth becomes depleted – a habitation for sin, sickness and death. When man rules without the Guiding Presence, creatures become extinct while humans exploit their brothers…

Lost & Found

Envision a life lived in limitless expansion of consciousness and possibility! Jesus taught that man lives in two worlds — not in succession, but concurrently. He lives in the world of appearances, the three-dimensional world of form and shape, time and space — the world where we have fluctuating experiences of sickness and health, of peace and war, of harmony and chaos. However, man also lives in a spiritual world as a spiritual being. Jesus says, ‘Don’t be misled in…

The Illusion of Control

Matthew 11:28 says “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened and I will give you rest.” Spiritual Rest is the place of Loving Intimacy with God. Spirit desires to meet with us in times of Spiritual Rest, to simply love us and restore us through intimacy with no expectations. I woke up today thinking about my message and sat in meditation focusing my energy on the embrace of Spirit’s Love moving through my entire being. I found…

The Brakes Have Come Off

Notice how birds land on a branch – with absolute trust. They trust that the branch will move with them as they land and then stabilize. You can do the same too. What if your “landing” isn’t what you expected and you wobble? Does that mean you will fall? Hardly! Even gymnasts land in a way that forces them to deal with their weight and forward movement. You are strong and can do the same.  Recognizing that movement when you land is a natural and helpful…

The Great Motivator

If you want to get people to take action and move, you need something that will set them in motion. I know what that something is, and after this Sunday’s talk, I think we will all have a better understanding of what drives us to bring about the kind of change this world needs. – Rev. Shad

Spirit’s Mission: To Heal the Collective

While our bodies and our senses tell us we are separate individuals, we are all one. We all individually vibrate as part of a single whole. As we witnessed this week, the people went to the streets to stand up for one of our brothers whose mistreatment by a police officer caused his death. The people stood up and showed they will no longer, as a collective, tolerate this kind of separation. While the upset, sadness and disbelief was real,…

Duality or At-ONE-ment

There are but 2 interpretations of Life, DUALITY OR AT-ONE-MENT, as A Course In Miracles refers to it. There is an effective analogy in the ancient text of the Gospel of Thomas that points out the illusion of duality and the trouble that accompanies it. “No one can ride two horses. No one can string two bows at the same time.”  Yet, that is exactly what most people trapped in the thinking of the world are attempting. Is it any wonder why there are so many people abusing themselves…

The Power of Awareness

Many spiritual people that I have been talking with lately have had in common the same question. Why is this pandemic happening? What is the truth? What is not the truth? What are we supposed to learn from this? While they are moving in and through these questions, feeling the fear, the worry, the despair and uncertainty of these times, they are encouraged by spiritual experiences through dreams, messages in nature, music and finding themselves surrendering into acceptance — acknowledging…

Your Divine Calling

Due to the worldwide Coronavirus shutdown, a considerable number of people have been advanced in consciousness. It’s going to become evident to these people that they are in the world at this time for a Divine Purpose. Having gained this understanding, they will easily start living an Enlightened Life as servants of the One Divine Intelligence which is in all and through all of us. Being called into this service is the greatest thing that can happen to anyone. To…

A Life Out of Focus

If we don’t choose what to focus on in life, life will choose it for us. This is a “no bueno” situation that we must change.

Spirit is Your Guide Through These Uncharted Territories

Everything you have nurtured in yourself until now has set you up to be ready for this endurance test. This is not the time to shrink in the face of uncertainty, but instead grab hold of all the promises that Spirit has given you and is giving you. There has never been or ever will be someone outside of you that can tell you how to keep safe, how to stay financially on top of this, how to stay healthy,…
