A beginning

So, where’s a good place to start? What’s a good summary of what I personally believe?

First of all, I’d like to say that I believe in God. In whatever shape you see her. Or him. Or whatever you want to call ‘God’: Father, Goddess, Lord, Infinite Intelligence, The Universe, The Divine, Love, The All-Seeing. in fact i will probably use a dozen different names for God in this series, and I make no apologies for mixing my personal pronouns either.

So here’s a good place to begin. I like this five point statement that I have developed from Unity church’s statement of faith. it’s not ‘complete’ (what could be?) and it needs detail. but I like its simplicity and its breadth.

So this is going to be a good place to start, I think. and we’ll see where we go from there.

#1 : God is all good, present and active in everything, everywhere.

#2 : I am a truly spiritual being because I am the presence and the power of God wherever I am.

#3 : I create my experiences by what I choose to think and what I feel and believe.

#4 : Through affirmative prayer and meditation, I connect with the Universal Power of God, transform my world and bring out the Love in my life. 

#5 : I give my best by living the Truth I know. I make a difference through my thoughts, words and actions as I bring the Love and the Presence of God.
