Lent

Break Free From the Tomb of Doubt

Unity and Easter

Resurrection. Crucifixion. Ascension. Atonement. Historically, these are the words that represent Easter and its symbolic celebration of Jesus.

However, there is no one Easter to fit all.

In his book Keep a True Lent, Charles Fillmore explained, “The resurrection takes place in us every time we rise to Jesus’s realization of the perpetual indwelling life that is connecting us to the Father. A new flood of life comes to all who open their minds and their bodies to the living word of God.”

The Hallway of Transformation

The Hallway of Transformation

I love to talk about things being magnificent and sublime. Those times when things are always perfect, and it can’t get any better, life is wonderful! I thoroughly enjoy those moments—sitting with others, basking in the glory of all that is good, true and beautiful. When I do, I can feel my body literally lightening up. Everything around me is glowing. I never want to lose those precious moments of celebration.

Lenten Consecration

Lenten Consecration by Clara May Rowland

Throughout the church world during the season of Lent people strive to become better Christians. Therefore we should not look upon it as a forbidding or a sad season of fasting and prayer but as a spiritual experience that means much to all of us if we enter into its observance in the right spirit.

Primarily the purpose of Lent is to prepare us mentally, physically, and spiritually for a new awakening; to resurrect us out of old states of consciousness into a new realization of life; and to permit us to reconsecrate and rededicate ourselves to the will and the work of Jesus Christ. Through our spiritual awakening we shall find renewed life and health, a joyous freedom from burdens, and best of all, peace of mind.

The Effusion of Light

We are living today in a complex and changing world. If there is one thing one needs more than anything else, it is light: light in terms of insight into self, guidance along life’s way, knowledge of the secrets of the universe, and the wisdom to use light and not abuse it. The clearest thinkers the race has produced have always seen the course of their lives as the quest for light. It is said that Goethe, who spent his life on this quest, gasped the last words on his deathbed: “More light!”1
