“You shall receive power, when the Holy Spirit is come upon you.” (Acts 1:8)

As we enter into this moment together, I invite you to listen within yourself as you read this to determine whether it it resonates within you as true.  The transmission of truth does not have to be done when we are gathered in person, but truth can be received anywhere and anytime because truth resides outside of time and space and rests in the eternal now.

For us to listen and receive truth we want to be in this spaciousness, where our mind has surrendered and is cleared of attachments and is open to receive.   Charles Fillmore writes in The 12 Powers of Man that “a quickening from on high must precede man’s realization of his innate control of thought and feeling.  The baptism of the Holy Spirit is a quickening of the spiritual nature.”

To receive this baptism and become aware of the Holy Spirit is not a one time experience, it happens every moment we choose to turn inward, pause and accept this.  Within our consciousness resides a Power that gives us the courage to be the expression of Love that we are looking for.

I was listening to a podcast by Gangaji, and one of the women who came to speak with her said she had been married four times and she was so very grateful to all of those husbands for now she has experienced the Love she was looking for in those relationships when she realized the Love had always been in the intimacy of her Being.  She said that this “intimacy” that she found within was the feeling she had been searching for in the four marriages.

What is this intimacy and how do we express it when we have experienced such Love?

It is the very essence of Love that we live, more and have our being in.  When one experiences this Power from the Holy Spirit, it wants to be expressed and in fact we are invited to “Go  preach this good news to all of creation.”  (Mark 16:15).

Recall every message from Unity is one that is talking about ourselves and this is no exception. We are to receive this power, this quickening of love from on high,  and speak empowering words of Spirit to every thought and feeling within our Soul and body.  These spiritual practices could include, yoga, tapping, chanting, Reiki, whatever practice that takes you out from the stories you brain creates and gives you a feeling of wholeness, being worthy and loved because that is the truth of who you are.

Then and only then do you take this way of Being into the world and you will know that you are connected to Source and speaking Truth when every word you speak is empowered with Love.  We need no script , nor plan nor goal,  for our words are imbued with Love.

Our 12 Power Class on Wednesday evening April 14, goes deeper into this awareness. Join us as we practice and speak together words that come from on high.  And Sunday we start a new series based on The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz, whose first chapter invites us to “Be Impeccable with Your Word.”
