Independence Day
“Freedom Comes With Responsibility You See”
Sunday, July 4, 2021
11am, Rev. Kelly Isola, Guest Speaker
*Facebook Live

Generally we think of freedom as release from restraint, burden. In Unity we may think of freedom as releasing error thoughts or lightening our load. We like to claim our freedom, but freedom from what or whom? And while there are certainly times when it is necessary to dismantle bonds or entanglements to regain the health of freedom, mostly, when we can put things together instead of taking things apart, we are offered a way to befriend what is timeless and enduring. Perhaps our challenge is to look to the bottom of what-is, rather than to keep searching for what needs releasing. At any moment, we can feel shuttered or free, we can separate further or belong to each other. When we can accept that we are not alone, freedom becomes more of a dance among the living.

Peace And Independence On The Fourth Of July
by Len Ellis
 
The Fourth of July holiday is approaching, and again I find myself questioning the true meaning of this day. July 4, 1776 was a remarkable day in history, a significant shift in consciousness to the need for freedom. Many people see the Fourth of July as a holiday, a day off from work, barbeques, etc, and of course fireworks, yet when I put the day in perspective by using the formal name - Independence Day - I must ask myself, am I really independent? Am I truly free?
 
We start out in life dependent on our parents or caretakers. We usually conform to their standards, to their values, to their likes and dislikes. If we were blessed, they taught us to be free thinkers, to question, to figure things out for ourselves, to exercise our independence, and we only saw their control when we needed protection. Otherwise, and I daresay is the majority of cases, we were held captive to what they wanted. So, I ask myself again, is this independence? I think not, as those caretakers are still having a degree of control of my life.
 
In my adult life, I am pressed to conform to “the norm”, and if I am truly independent and free, I will politely nod and continue on my path. I know in my own life there are times when I do give up a piece of my freedom and independence to conform and compromise, but the result is a false peace of mind. 
 
Where I find I lose my independence, however, is when I hold on to resentments or judgments toward others. Indeed, in holding on to any resentment, my life is then shaped and controlled by my feelings about that situation, about that person or group. Until I am able to find compassion and forgiveness, I will continue to be a prisoner of the feelings I am holding on to. It’s not the other person or group controlling me, they probably have no idea of what I am holding on to, it is totally and absolutely ME who is preventing my own freedom!
 
So, let me begin right here, right now, with me. What I want most is to be free of the compulsions that keep me from living in peace with myself. When I can do this, I can then live in peace with my friends, my neighbors, with the earth, and yes, even with my so-called enemies. I have a deep desire for freedom and to be free and independent. Therefore, I have to be honest about my feelings, not hide or stuff them, and commit to resolving whatever situation comes up.
 
And yes, life does have conflicts and disappointments, so how can I be free when these come up? To live truly free and at peace, I must first acknowledge these, then with compassion, love those who might not be loving me. By doing so, I will no longer be dependent on how others act towards me. By loving those I am in conflict with, whether it is right here right now, or from years ago, can I win my freedom, heal myself, and raise my level of consciousness. 
 
Today, I can make the choice to hold on to the hurt and anger and resentment, or I can forgive and release it, thereby freeing myself. Yes, many times this will go against the conditioning I have received, and the choice may not be easy. It takes real courage to make these choices, yet I know once I experience the freedom these choices bring, I will be inspired to continue, I will find immense joy and happiness.
 
I will enjoy the festivities this Independence Day, as I hope you will. At the same time, I invite you to join me in looking at the ties that bind us, because independence and freedom, just like peace, begins with ME!

UNITY'S FIVE BASIC PRINCIPLES

Principle #1:
There is only one Presence and one Power in the Universe and in my life, God the Good.

Principle #2:
Human beings have a spark of divinity within them, the Christ spirit within.
Their essence is of God, and therefore they are also inherently good. 

Principle #3:
Human beings create their experiences by the activity of their thinking.
Everything in the manifest realm has its beginning in thought.

Principle #4:
Prayer is creative thinking that heightens the connection with God Mind and therefore brings forth wisdom, healing, prosperity, and everything good.

Principle #5:
Knowing and understanding the laws of life, also called Truth, are not enough.
A person must live the truth he or she knows.
CORE VALUES
Spirit-Led:
Centered in the awareness of God's presence, we turn within for divine guidance in all we do.
 
Love:
Love is our True Nature. We express the harmonizing power of love to see good everywhere and in everybody. Love binds together the whole human family.
 
Diversity:
We believe that all people are created with sacred worth. In a spirit of Unity, we embrace each person as an expression of God grounded in truth and love.
 
Connection:
We live, love, and laugh from our Oneness with God. We honor our inter-connectedness with each other, with all life, and the earth.
 
Abundance:
God is our Infinite Source of Good. We gratefully demonstrate prosperity in all areas of our lives. We wisely use our wealth of resources to serve our spiritual community and the world.
 
Service:
We cultivate enlightened leadership by practicing the teachings of Jesus the Christ through sacred service. It is a blessing to serve locally and globally.
 
Integrity:
We consciously choose to practice living our Core Values and Unity Principles rather than simply professing them. We choose to communicate from the heart with authenticity and deliver on our commitments with reliability.
