Monday Inspiration – Unity of the Spirit

As we are continue our studies of Lessons in Truth, this week Cady talks about the unity of the Spirit. Just as different languages may all speak about the same thing, different religions all point to the same Spirit. We may have different methods of getting there, but all conscious people are moving in the same direction. She says: “The teachings of spirit are intrinsically the same, because Spirit is one. I heard an uneducated woman speak in a most orthodox prayer meeting... Read More

Monday Inspiration-Sitting in the Silence

According to Emilie Cady, ““Sitting in the silence” is not merely a sort of lazy drifting. It is a passive, but a definite, waiting upon God. When you want to do this, take a time when you can, for a little while, lay off all care. Begin your silence by lifting up your heart in prayer to the Father of your being. Do not be afraid that, if you begin to pray, you will be too “orthodox.” You are not going to supplicate God, who has already given you... Read More

Monday Inspiration – The Kingdom of Heaven

“With a restlessness that is pitiful to see, people are ever shifting from one thing to another, always hoping to find rest and satisfaction in some anticipated accomplishment or possession. Men fancy that they want houses and lands, great learning or power. They pursue these things and gain them, only to find themselves still restless, still unsatisfied.” (Emilie Cady) What would you give to be truly happy? To be truly at peace? The Bible says, it is worth everything!... Read More

Monday Morning Inspiration

As we continue our studies of Emilie Cady’s, Lessons in Truth, in verse 13 of Chapter 8, she says: “Understanding, or realization of the presence of God within us, is as Peter said, “the gift of God” (Jn. 4:10). It comes to any and all who learn how to seek it aright. Emerson said, “This energy (consciousness of God in the soul) does not descend into individual life on any other condition than entire possession. It comes to the lowly and simple;... Read More

Monday Inspiration – Lessons in Truth Part 5

The last lesson we covered in this book dealt with  denials, and this part deals with its counterpart, affirmations. We introduce a new affirmation each week and use this in our Friday group healing prayer, so I won’t go into much detail about them since we have been discussing them at length for some time now. However Emilie Cady whose book became the primer for the Unity Church has eloquently and comprehensively written about the power in affirmations and why they are... Read More

Monday Inspiration – Lessons in Truth Part 4

DENIAL While we all know that being ‘in denial’ may not be such a good thing, the process of denial is a very profound spiritual technique. We often talk about the power in affirmation, and denial is a counterpart to this. It can be considered the ‘other side’ of the affirmation, and it works very well for those who are ‘stuck’ in a pattern of self-defeating beliefs. Emilie Cady speaks about this in the 4th part of her Lessons in Truth book. Verse... Read More

Lessons in Truth

As previously mentioned, I was guided to begin sharing some of the books that have been so monumentally helpful to Dr. Suni and I. Lessons in Truth, by Emilie Cady, is one of those books that if you were stranded on a deserted island, would delight you for years and years. This is because it’s not simply a book, it’s an experience. We know from dealing with energy, that everything, everything boils down to energy. This means, that even though a book is in tangible... Read More
