Light Transforms the Darkness

“Listen to the inner light; it will guide you. Listen to the inner peace; it will feed you. Listen to the inner love; it will transform you.” This quote is from Sri Chinmoy, an Indian spiritual leader, musician, poet, artist and champion athlete, who taught meditation in the West after moving to New York City in 1964. The essence of Sri Chinmoy’s timeless quote is echoed in one of Unity’s Daily Word publications, titled “My inner light shines forth and transforms the darkness.” As our communities open up and people have more opportunities to interact face-to-face, we can’t help but feel a spark of joy in our hearts and a lightness of spirit. Unity’s Daily Word offers these words of wisdom:

“The rising sun marks the change from night to a new day as light slowly infuses and transforms the darkness. What once appeared in the shadows is gently brought into the light, reminding me that the light of God within dissolves all darkness. I can’t control other people or circumstances, but I know that in the midst of darkness I can always access the light within me. In any moment when I feel afraid or gloomy, I can experience the transformative power of a new day. I am nothing less than the Light of God, created with a divine image and likeness. Just like the sun rises without fail, I can overcome the darkness within and around me by bringing forth my inner light.” 

Although Ocean Unity is not yet meeting in person, we are holding virtual services through Zoom on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of each month. The next virtual service is scheduled for Sunday, August 8th at 10:45 a.m., with fellowship time beginning at 10:15. If you would like to participate or find out more, email Ann Baumgardt, Ocean Unity’s Secretary/Treasurer, at [email protected] If you would like to receive the church’s newsletters and updates via email, let Ann know as well.
