autodiscover.manualcoursemarket.com/124.php The Unity movement was founded by Charles and Myrtle Fillmore in as a healing ministry based on the power of prayer and the power of our thoughts to create our own reality. The Fillmores regarded Jesus as the great example rather than the great exception; interpreted the Bible metaphysically; and taught that God is present within all of us. Unity founders Charles and Myrtle Fillmore believed that by accepting each other we expand our spiritual consciousness. Today, more than years later, Unity is still dedicated to helping ALL people discover a positive path for spiritual living.
The Unity movement is open and welcoming of all individuals regardless of race, color, gender, age, creed, religion, national origin, ethnicity, physical disability or sexual orientation. Unity teaches that all people are created with sacred worth and that no one exists outside the heart of God. Its basic principles state that God is Good, and because all people exist within God, they also are inherently good. Therefore, we recognize the importance of serving all people within the Unity family in spiritually and emotionally caring ways. We strive for our ministries, publications and programs to reach out to all who seek Unity support and spiritual growth.
It is imperative that our ministries and outreaches be free of discrimination on the basis of race, color, gender, age, creed, religion, national origin, ethnicity, physical disability or sexual orientation. Our sincere desire is to ensure that all Unity organizations are nondiscriminatory and support diversity. We believe that we were created in Original Virtue and in the image and likeness of God as it says in Genesis Humankind has forgotten this truth and lives in a consciousness of separation from Divine reality. We believe Jesus was the individual who most clearly demonstrates this Divine Spark, and his purpose was to show us how to express ours.
Salvation then is the expanding of our awareness to embrace and demonstrated our own innate Divinity. We believe that Jesus left some very powerful teachings as guidelines on how to seek the Divine Presence. Consequently, Unity seeks to understand these guidelines and use them as the basis for all of our teachings.
The Law of Mind Action. Therefore, an emphasis is placed on how our thoughts, feelings, words, and actions draw our experiences to us. We believe that everything in the manifest realm has its beginning in thought. When we take personal responsibility to choose life-affirming thoughts and words we experience a more fulfilling and abundant life!
Prayer and Meditation. In Unity prayer is not seen as a technique for changing God, but as a means of aligning our mind with the Infinite and thereby changing us. Prayer is our connection with the One Creative Force of the Universe, and is the way we seek and attune our mind to be in accord with God. We believe that meditation is a form of prayer, a type of creative thinking that heightens our link to the Divine and therefore brings forth wisdom, healing, prosperity, and everything good.
