Natural disasters. Civil unrest. In challenging times fear can be widespread. To help shift fear to faith, Silent Unity is inviting the world community to unite in prayer for 30 days by affirming the following prayer: The healing, harmonizing spirit of God is present in my life and all life. Peace, order, harmony, and well-being are restored.
See It Right, Not Make It Right
By Gary Simmons
Excerpted from The I of the Storm
Quantum physicists assert that in any given moment, infinite possibilities are present. Some go as far as to say that there are infinite universes coexisting. The moment you act as if something is so, the universe of infinite possibilities collapses into one inevitable happenstance. When you look at something and say, “This is what it is,” you are pouring your creative energy (attention and awareness) into that specific perception. The moment your awareness locks on to one possibility, all other universes collapse. While in any given situation there may be many possibilities, innumerable paths, the instant you decree “This is it!” all others vanish. This is why it is so important not to give power to your perceptions, as if they accurately describe what is going on. When you realize that your perception is incomplete and mediated by your need to feel safe and okay, you will pause before drawing concrete conclusions. You must use Principle to compensate for misperception. Principle helps you manage the perceptual impairments associated with your conditioned awareness.
When you cannot see God at your point of experience, you may become fearful. When you don’t feel connected to others, you may become suspicious. Faith is the avenue of awareness that sees God in every situation. Love is the avenue of awareness that sees your oneness and connection to all life. Gaps in your awareness of God’s presence and in your oneness with others are what support fear and distrust. … The key is to fill in the gaps with Truth principles. …
Jesus said to Peter, the disciple who represents faith, “Whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven” (Mt. 16:19 RSV). Another way of saying the same thing is this: “According to your faith be it done unto you.” How you see things, what you make your experiences mean, and what you do because of what the experiences mean to you are powerful forces in your life. When seeing is believing or when believing is seeing, you are framing your life in no uncertain terms.
