What Is Unity?
Nature of Humankind
Unity co-founders: Charles and Myrtle Fillmore, studied the Bible as history and allegory, and interpreted it as a metaphysical representation of humankind’s evolutionary journey toward spiritual awakening. Today, Unity recognized that the Bible is a complex collection of writings compiled over many centuries. We honor the writings as reflecting the understanding and inspiration of the writers at the time they were written. It continues to have meaning for us today.
Unity emphasizes the creative power of thought in our life experience. We refer to this as the Law of Mind Action. When we take personal responsibility to choose life affirming thoughts and words, we experience a more fulfilling and abundant life.
Unity teachings continue to evolve by identifying, embracing and applying the spiritual implications of scientific and psychological discoveries.
Prayer and Mediation
Affirmative prayer is the highest form of creative thought. Meditation is resting and listening in the silence. We use prayer and meditation to experience the presence of God and to remember our oneness. These spiritual practices transform us.
