Easter is a wonderful time of year. This is when winter is on the wane and trees, shrubs and flowers are giving evidence to the constancy of life. Metaphysically, Easter is the awakening of the I AM in you. This means beginning to realize your divinity and opening your mind to the end of limitation and the reality of the newness of life with all its possibilities. In short, it means allowing yourself to move from a confining tomb of negative experience into being fully alive and conscious of God’s infinite good for you.
Too often, it seems, people will give more attention to limitations than to their unlimited divine potential. If you only think of yourself as a physical being, you seriously limit the good that God may accomplish through you.You are wise to recognize that God created you as a spiritual being endowed with all of His faculties. Therefore, you have within you infinite possibilities. The more you realize this and let it express, the happier, healthier, more peaceful and prosperous, you are.
Unity teaches that you, and all of God’s children, are the very expressions of God. This means that you have all of the love, life, power, wisdom, substance, power and joy that God is. Your Easter is your realization and opening your mind to this Truth in that it is very freeing.
It was wonderful to watch a young lady whom I met when she first came to Unity of Phoenix church. At first she was rather shy and not very inspiring. But, fortunately, she opened herself to Truth, diligently studied, and put the Unity teaching to work in her life. Over several years, the transformation was amazing! Now, she glows with the light of Truth, and her innate beauty shows. This was her Easter experience. It can be yours, too. Open your mind and heart to Truth. Study, and incorporate the Unity teachings in your consciousness and you will eventually free yourself of old negative experiences and emerge into a wonderful new life. The most important power and part of this is Love. – Lovingly, Rev. John
Just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, so we too might walk in the newness of life.
– Romans 6:4

Releasing that which no longer serves me,

my bright new life.

Golden Keys to Answered Prayers…
There are many ways in which we limit our capacity to receive answers to our prayers. Fear, doubt, and worry always close the inlet through which the answer would flow into visibility, for they carry us farther from the Giver instead of into His presence. The answer desired when the prayer is offered may never be manifested, for as long as we are seeking things, our desires change with the fashions, and there is not the perfect pattern for substance to follow. Or the answer may be contorted and unrecognizable when it does come into manifestation because of a lack of faith and a wavering vision. The Golden Key to Answered Prayer is having full faith in God and knowing that God always answers prayer. Then your prayer is answered, it is God become more manifest in your and in your life. – Adapted from: Effectual Prayer by Frances W. Foulks
In the Mail…
Miracles are happening! – It is amazing the miracles that keep happening in my life! Since I wrote to you and asked for prayer support, one miracle after another has happened. First, my husband stopped smoking. Then, our son who had been having difficulty in school and wanted to drop out, began to change his thinking. His grades have improved and he now has a new attitude toward himself and school. Also, our finances have substantially improved. We have our own business and after a few years of struggle, it is now beginning to prosper. We attribute that to our beginning to tithe and looking to God as our Source. Thank you for your prayers and teachings. We are all very grateful. Our thankful tithe is enclosed in support of the great work you are doing. Thank you for being there. – New Mexico

A Little Humor…
The guy who wrote, “A job well done never needs doing again”, probably has never weeded a garden.
Why do tug boats push their barges?
Tell a man there are 400 billion stars, and he’ll believe you. Tell him a bench has wet paint, and he has to touch it!

A special note of thanks. I do my best to provide the best in spiritual food to nourish the souls of all who receive and read my Newsletters.
