Unity: A New Beginning

Kay Davis

Unity Church of Sun Lakes is a New Thought Community. We celebrate Peace, Love, Light, and Healing. Our practice is affirmative prayer and positive thinking. We support one another in living a Spirit-centered life. Beginning Jan. 1, we will be meeting for church at 10 a.m., a half hour later than in the past. We meet in the Arts and Crafts Room in Sun Lakes 1 Country Club. Rev. Jeanne MacLaughlin delivers our lesson live and can be found on YouTube later that day. We welcome you!

Happy New Year! Are you feeling a bit of excitement, a thrill about how this brand-new year’s Infinite Possibilities will be expressed in your life? The January/February 2023 issue of Unity Magazine featured an interview with Mallika Chopra, the daughter of Deepak Chopra, on the merits of meditation to deepen your spiritual life. Mallika has written several self-help books for children and adults and is the CEO of a holistic healthcare company based on her father’s teachings that address the intersection of science and Spirit. She also teaches at workshops on meditation and holistic healing worldwide. Meditation can be a tool for self-regulation, but this practice comes from very rich wisdom traditions. The sages who were meditating in caves in the Himalayas or in Israel or the shamans in Native American traditions were not stressed but trying to discover more about themselves, the universe, and their connection to Spirit. This is a Spiritual practice.

A serious commitment to daily meditation can be life changing. It may take a few weeks to get comfortable with it, so be patient and don’t worry if the “monkey-mind” disturbs your silence. That’s natural, and you can gently release thoughts and go back to your breathing.
