Something extraordinary is about to happen on this planet.
“Humanity is about to create a new form of spirituality. This New Spirituality will allow humans to express their natural impulse toward the Divine without making one another wrong for the way in which they are doing it, and without killing one another in the name of it. When the New Spirituality is embraced by humanity, it will, of course, change everything. And that is exactly what is needed now.”
The above paragraph, from Tomorrow’s God by Neale Donald Walsch, describes the “tipping point” humanity has reached in its quest for understanding—understanding God, understanding Self and understanding Life. We are claiming our freedom. We are free to examine things that we were taught in childhood, to accept or discard these as we choose. We are free to apply our adult faculty of discernment to commonly accepted teachings, and to follow those that resonate in our hearts as true.
We are free to redefine our image of God. We study the scriptures from many enduring traditions; we learn from many great teachers, we discuss with our peers the ideas that we have. And then we turn within, listening to inner guidance, knowing that we can trust that guidance—that we are and have always been connected to Cosmic Truth.
It is time for us to redefine divinity. It is time for us to strip away the attributes assigned to God by various institutions through the ages. It is time for us to move into a purer vision, one in keeping with the Truth of our hearts.
We quiet any fear associated with releasing the God of our childhoods. We allow a new image of the Source of Life to form itself in our minds. We expand our concept of the Almighty to include All That Is—every person, every animal, every object, every planet, every star, every thought. For it is all One.
At Unity Spiritual Community, we are excited to explore the ideas that Walsch shares in Tomorrow’s God during our Sunday talks on March 8 and March 15. We invite you to join us at our 10 AM service--come as you are, you are always welcome!
