Each magazine includes two months of daily affirmative messages, feature articles and spiritual poetry Affirmations are positive statements of Truth.  By affirming Truth we are lifted out of false thinking into the consciousness of Spirit.  Each time we pray positively and faithfully, we are calling forth the divine activity that is always within us.

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 n ew ways of doin g, whic h lead to wholeness and health and satisfaction and grow th." Myrtle Fillmore ( 1895)
