Kevin Spacey on Success

As we review our year and plan for our next one listen to what he says about success.

Unity Long Island: Everyday The Oak Ridge Boys

Unity Long Island: Everyday The Oak Ridge Boys: "Here is the video we watched at our service on Sunday. Remember you are the love of God in the world. Have some fun today! Everyday..."

Everyday Lyrics
You know a smile
Never goes out of style
So brighten up the one that you wear
Let it shine
And you just might find
You'll lighten up the load that you bear.

The Four Gratitudes

The Four Gratitudes

As we celebrate thanksgiving we remember & give thanks to all who have contributed to our lives.

In Aikido we are reminded of this daily. In our training we consider the principle of the Four Gratitudes.

Gratitude toward:
I. The Universe/Divine-the source of all life.
II. Our Ancestors & Parents who are responsible for our existence.
III. Nature which provides daily sustenance.
IV. Other human beings who help us in our daily lives as contributors to our society.

Thanks to all who have contributed to my life.

Most academics, including administrators, spend much of our time writing. But we aren't as good at it as we should be. I have never understood why our trade values, but rarely teaches, nonfiction writing.

Unity of Gulf Breeze Prayer Request

Please join us in prayer for Unity of Gulf Breeze:
Unity of Gulf Breeze is a family size church located on the road between Pensacola and Pensacola Beach. Yesterday the oil landed on our beautiful white beaches, there is no swimming allowed now due to the oil and other toxins that have washed in. While we are affirming a solution, we are experiencing first hand the loss of the lives of so many beautiful creatures . We need your prayer support. I am asking that you send written prayers to us words from your hands and heart are very powerful. We will post them on the walls of the church to lift us up. Many of us have completed the training to qualify as volunteers and are on standby. See us empowered by faith not constricted by fear. Help us with this process. We know the church walls will be filled soon. We will provide meditation and prayer services and recreational activities for the community. There are many church communities impacted by this event we affirm we are all surrounded by love and strength.
In Love and Grace
Beth Boilott
Spiritual Leader

Creativity where does that special spark come from?

"Eat, Pray, Love" Author Elizabeth Gilbert muses on the impossible things we expect from artists and geniuses -- and shares the radical idea that, instead of the rare person "being" a genius, all of us "have" a genius. It's a funny, personal and surprisingly moving talk.
