Living Abundantly

Your life can be positively transformed! Today can be the day in which God's plan for your life begins expressing itself in ways greater than anything you can imagine. You can become more fully aware of the incredible kingdom of God within and around you.

Jesus said, “I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly” (Jn. 10:10). To accept Jesus’ invitation to a fuller life, we must be willing to move beyond a routine, fearful, or limited existence and live the dynamic, abundant life. We live the abundant life by daring to discover more of our spiritual identity and potential.

The Power of Thought

The Power of Thought

I first heard of Eric Butterworth back in 1955. At that time I was a performer based in San Francisco, and my voice teacher happened to be a lay minister at the local Unity Church. He took me to his church the first time and I never left. …

What I found to be so compelling in Butterworth’s teachings, and still do, is that the power of God, the essential spirit, is within each of us. We can ignore that, or we can draw upon it and decide to grow. We can heal ourselves—or at least heal ourselves enough to know that we may need the help of a professional.

Setting a Trap for Gratitude

Setting a Trap for Gratitude

"Practice gratitude daily and your life will change in ways you can hardly imagine."

It is not our job to manifest abundance; it is our job to demonstrate our abundance, by understanding that God is the abundance we seek.

The Reality of Affluence

The Reality of Affluence

In a time when the world is facing the grim specter of lack, there is a great need to understand the omnipresence of divine substance. There is little question that people can fail and even go hungry in their experience of life. But the great truth of the "reality of affluence" is that there is a legitimate abundance for every person, which one can and must claim for oneself, and that lack of any kind in the human experience is the result of some kind of obstruction of the free flow of the creative process…

Ask Yourself This

Examining what we say “yes” to or what we agree to in our lives can tell us a lot about our priorities. Priorities can, in turn, tell us a great deal about ourselves. Where we spend our time and money is a powerful indicator of what we truly value. If you open your calendar, your checkbook and your credit card statement, you will see an important picture of what you are saying “yes” to in your life. We vote with how we spend our dollars and how we spend our time. What do you agree to in your life? Through both your words and actions, what do you say “yes” to?

Techniques For Abundant Living

Eric Butterworth was an ordained Unity minister and author of numerous articles and books. The following excerpt is from his book Unity: A Quest for Truth.

Unity is not simply a church to join or a creed to espouse. Unity is a study of religion as a science of living. It is an interpretation of the teachings of Jesus Christ with prime emphasis on practice. Obviously, it will hold no interest for those whose religion is a white cloak to be wrapped around them on Sunday morning and then tossed into the six-day closet of unconcern.
