Prosperity and Abundance for Unity of Santa Rosa
We offer our ongoing prayers for Prosperity and Abundance for Unity of Santa Rosa.
We are a beautiful and loving community of kindred spirits on the path of enlightenment. Ultimately we each make our own journey alone but, like pilgrims, we share with others along the way. Here in this sanctuary that we have made sacred by our love and intention, we learn together, grow together, and support one another, spiritually and as fellow humans.
This has been a spiritual home for so many people for approaching fifty years. How many lives have been uplifted and transformed by the principles of Unity and the fellowship of Unity of Santa Rosa? We affirm our commitment to this community, to its regeneration and growth, not just for ourselves each Sunday, but to the people in the future we invite to come and take of the spiritual bread we offer. We have the will, the energy, the creativity, and the openness to new ideas to create a prosperous spiritual community, rich with members and resources to support it. We are open to the limitless abundance of Spirit to manifest healthy growth, to draw to our doors and our online portals the people who are hungry for the message of Unity, and to draw the resources we need to support this vibrant community. We make sure all feel welcome and included, seen and heard.
Unity of Santa Rosa has been tended for so many years by dedicated Truth students. We stand on their shoulders, each generation stepping up as stewards for this precious community, ensuring that it is here for the next generation as a place of spiritual growth and fellowship.
Unity of Santa Rosa is the manifestation of our belief and our love. All of us together have all we need to take action, make wise decisions, and stay committed to our prosperity. Unity of Santa Rosa is bigger than this room and its current membership. It is an expression of the love of all of us here, those who have been here before us, and those yet to come.
For our individual and collective powers--our strength, our wisdom, our faith, our zeal, our love--to make sure this community, like the light in the tower at Silent Unity, is an ever shining beacon of love and hope for all--we are so deeply grateful.
And so it is.

I invite you to relax and get comfortable in your chair and take a few deep breaths. Feel yourself releasing all tensions, thoughts about the day or week ahead, worries, and open up to Divine Love.
You are that Divine Love. It is not separate from you. It is not a part of you. It is you. It is The All of You. Love is one of the organizing and animating principles of The Universe and it is the one we choose to activate in all matters of our lives. Love is at the center of every thought, every relationship, every decision to be made. When we choose to act out of the inherent LOVE that we are, there can be no mistakes, no wrong decisions, no wrong outcomes. Even if it is not the outcome that our conscious mind would like, it is the right outcome and the divine outcome.
We don't just live this love on this morning, in this sacred gathering of hearts within a single spirit. We love every day. For with love at the center of all, we experience inner peace, clarity, and acceptance. And we see the prevailing Goodness around us with clearer vision. We see not just what is wrong but what is right within lives, within others, within nature. We don't see the trees blackened by fire but the trees that have prevailed and are producing new leaves. We see caterpillars as soon to be butterflies. We feel the innocent love of animals and children. We notice the smiles of strangers and key in to stories about human kindness rather than hatred and crime.
For the power of love to uplift, to bring healing and wholeness to all that is, we are deeply grateful.
And so it is.

We open ourselves today to peace. When it seems distant and out of our control, we remember that we control what we see and experience and project. And it comes from within us. Whatever circumstances swirl around us or in the world, we CLAIM our inner peace. We are guided to keep ourselves strong and without fear, and we do whatever we can to promote peace and harmony. We find ways to help others and to be "instruments of God's peace," as the prayer of St. Francis calls us to be.
We send our collective prayers for peace and resolution across the globe to Ukraine, that its people, our brothers and sisters and children in humanity, know they are not alone. They are comforted and uplifted in the knowledge that so many people across the world are joining in prayer, creating a spiritual forcefield to guide them to safety, to support them in loss, to empower them to stand for their right to autonomy, and to summon the power of justice to bring a quick resolution to this crisis.
We release our prayers, knowing they are already at work manifesting a right and just outcome. And for that we are so deeply grateful.
