13 Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt has lost his savor, wherewith shall it be salted?..
14 Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden.
15 Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.
16 Let your light so shine!..
- New Testament (Mathew 5)

(Rambam, Ilchot Yesodot Torah)
Unity Principle #3: We are co-creators with God, creating reality through thoughts held in the mind. To paraphrase this statement, “We have created, through our God within powers, the complete physical reality that we are experiencing 24 hours each day.”
Be at Peace.
It is the opening of the heart center which makes you feel everything so deeply.
You find that tears flow so easily?
These are tears of joy; let them flow. They are tears of recognition of truth and love divine.
This brings a feeling of elation, of thanksgiving, of a new and deep understanding. It is as if you had slept and have now awakened to find a new world.
Everything looks different and beautiful. It is as if you went to sleep in winter when everything lay dormant and have awakened to spring in its full glory. The same trees, the same garden are there, but vibrant with life, growth, color and beauty, for all is made new and you feel new in the process.
New thoughts, new feelings, new understanding- a new deeper and more glorious love- are vibrating through your whole being.
Rejoice, My child, rejoice. Tread delicately, alertly, so that you miss nothing. See even the tiniest insect in a new light.
Because you have chosen to open your eyes, all is indeed made new.
You have divided up life, but now it is one glorious whole.
The wholeness fills your heart, expands it, raises your consciousness. This newness has to start within and then expand outward and up and up. There is no limit to this expansion; it can go on for ever and ever.

Miracles occur naturally as expressions of love.
The real miracle is the love that inspires them. In this sense, everything that comes from love is a miracle….
Miracles are healing because they supply a lack… All expressions of love bring more love to both the giver and the receiver.
Through prayer, love is received, and through miracles, love is expressed.
Each day should be devoted to miracles… Use time constructively…
Learn that it is as blessed to give as to receive.
Miracles transcend the body. They are sudden shifts…. That is why they heal…
A miracle is a service. It is the maximal service you can render to another… You recognize your own and your neighbor’s worth simultaneously.
Miracles awaken the awareness that the spirit, not the body is the altar of truth.

Now when Jesus saw the crowds, he went up on a mountainside and sat down.
2 And he opened his mouth, and taught them, saying,
3 Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
