Suggestions For Your Spiritual Practice: 
  
 
Unity Founders: Charles and Myrtle Fillmore:
"God is the one perfect life flowing through us. God is the one pure substance out of which our organism is formed. God is the only reality of us; all else is but a shadow that is cast by some foolish belief or unwise combination of thoughts and the elements of being. When we let light flood us with its sunshine, all clouds vanish and we begin to see ourselves in new ways of doing, which lead to wholeness and health and satisfaction and growth." Myrtle Fillmore (1895)

Metaphysical Network 

November 16th, 7:00pm, by donation
Thomas Daniel Nehrer - Author, Speaker, Adventurer, "Grounded" Mystic
Tom looks beyond standard explanations to illustrate Consciousness as experienced in personal interaction with life events.  The Oneness of things, the inner-outer connection each of us experiences, is evident in patterns we each attract in life.
 
Note:  Tom suggests attendees view two of his video series prior to his presentation on Nov. 16th.  One explores The Mystic Experience and the second, Life's Real Flow.  From this basis, Tom can illustrate how outer issues in life all have inner roots - plus, how to find these inner negatives and change them, thus spurring improvement in health, relationships and success.
 
Viewing these ahead of time allows deeper exploration of the Oneness of things.  Also, Tom will field questions and discussion points on any of his other videos - all of which are offered for free and without commercialization.
This presentation was first developed in tribute to Edgar Mitchell, moon-walking Astronaut, for the San Diego IONS Group.  Mitchell founded the Institute of Noetic Sciences to research Consciousness, based on his own mystic experience while returning from the moon.
Here, Tom illustrates the nature of the Now Moment as the emergence of meaningful content is manifested into Reality.
Totally Out of Time: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=us7ckVv6Fvk can add further perspective to recognizing existence in this Now Moment.
Be ready to dive into subconscious function, awareness of Self and the restrictions of common thinking - lots to explore!!!

Become a Unity Member
What does it mean to be a Unity Member? Membership in Unity is unique.  In Unity of Nanaimo, "professions of faith" not required.  Instead, members are encouraged to develop their own personal consciousness of God's presence and power, and to follow the example of Jesus in developing the Christ consciousness through mastering prayer and meditation, conscious living based on spiritual principles, and loving service.  Members are never required to sever their ties with other churches or spiritual organizations.  We believe in the goodness in the heart of all of the major faiths and that they are tied together in some way by the golden thread of Truth.  Membership in Unity is a privilege and an opportunity to be a stakeholder and a participant in the organization. Members give of their time, expertise, love, prayers, and attention.  Our spiritual home and ministry is entirely supported locally by free-will offerings, financial gifts, and the commitment of support from members and friends of Unity.
If you would love to be a Unity Member, please sign up for our next new member orientation class on Wednesday, December 6th at 7:00 p.m..
