Where all people are welcome and differences are celebrated as the splendor of God's creative expression!
The word “armature” is fascinating in that it has three meanings, which in some ways oppose one another. An armature can be defined as:
- The rotating coil or coils of a dynamo or electric motor; any moving part of an electrical machine in which a voltage is induced by a magnetic field; a piece of iron or other object acting as a keeper for a magnet.
- A metal framework on which a sculpture is molded with clay or similar material; a framework or formal structure, especially of a literary work: "Shakespeare's plots have served as the armature for many novels."
- The protective covering of an animal or plant.
Unity’s basic principles provide the armature for our lives in all three of these ways. They energize, call us to action, remind us that we are cocreators with Spirit and to utilize this power through the Law of Mind Action.
They also provide the inner structure of our very being, teaching us that we are made of God stuff—the Christ within. Through prayer and meditation, we have direct contact with Spirit and receive comfort and guidance.
Finally, these principles are the means by which we gauge what is Truth and what is error thought, protecting us from misleading or incomplete ideas.
The persistent presence of God in our lives can appear to us, as it did to the Prophet Elijah, as the still, small voice guiding us from within, or as a whirlwind moving us forward. Elijah’s story can be found in 1st and 2nd Kings. Like an armature, this divine presence serves as a dynamo, generating the energy of life. Also, like an armature, Spirit provides the structure upon which we materialize our world.
The principles which form and energize life itself can be expressed as follows:
- There is only God and God is only good.
- You, and all others, are created from God.
- Your experience is the product of your beliefs.
- Prayer and meditation improve your conscious contact with God.
- Applying these ideas will bring you an increase of joy, success and spiritual understanding.
Unity provides a simple, powerful, positive framework for navigating our lives. We are an open, loving community committed to spiritual growth and global healing.
