Affirmation

I willingly do unto others as I would have them do unto me!

The Golden Rule

Can Religions Work Together? 

          The Golden Rule exists in all religions in some form. It is a statement, in summary, of the basic requirements for all human behavior. It appears sometimes in positive form: Jesus said, “Do to others whatever you would have them do to you.” (Mathew 7:12). It also appears in negative form: Confucius said, “What you do not want done to you, do not do to others. (Analects 15.23) Since this is the fundamental obligation in all religions, why are religions involved in so many of the most bitter conflicts in the world?  Why do religious people seem too often to be a living contradiction of love? Part of the answer to those questions is that religions offer the resources, the programs and the goals of worthwhile and successful lives, success being defined within the religions themselves. They cannot guarantee that people live their lives in those ways.

          All religions recognize that people, even with the best intentions, are pulled down by sin and ignorance. Religions offer ways of resisting what is wrong and dispelling ignorance, but they cannot compel people to live in these ways. Even worse, people use religion as weapons to gain power for themselves and do damage to others:  think of the ways men have used religious sanctions to keep control over women. Even now, today, when this is recognized within religions as wrong, there are still those who try to keep things as they have always been: among those Christians who oppose the ordination of women, some accept that there is no serious argument against it except that it has never been done before.

          The Golden Rule is endorsed by all the great world religions. And for many centuries the idea has been influential among people of very diverse cultures. These facts suggest that the Golden Rule may be an important moral truth.

          President Kennedy in 1963 appealed to the Golden Rule in an anti-segregation speech at the time of the first black enrollment at the University of Alabama. He asked whites to consider what it would be like to be treated as second-class citizens because of skin color. Whites were to imagine themselves being black – and being told that they couldn’t vote, or go to the best public schools, or eat at most public restaurants, or sit in the front of the bus. Would whites be content to be treated that way? He was sure that they wouldn’t and yet this is how they treated others. He said,“the heart of the questions is . . . whether we are going to treat our fellow Americans as we want to be treated.”

          The Golden Rule is a common obligation for all. On this basis, religious people can encourage each other to achieve the best that their different traditions require of them and can join together in agreeing on what should be opposed. At the heart of each religion is the Sengyo or fish-run principle that Zen Buddhists derive from Chuang-tzu 31: “A fish-run is constructed to catch fish:  we should keep the fish and forget the run. A snare is to catch a rabbit:  we should keep the rabbit and forget the snare. Words are to transmit meaning:  we should keep the meaning and forget the words.”

          “Ascribe not to any soul that which thou wouldst ascribe to thee, and say not that which thou doest not”  “Blessed is he who preferred his brother before himself.”Baha’u’llah (Baha’i Faith)

          “Do not hurt others with that which hurts yourself.” The Buddha

          “And as ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them likewise.” Luke 6:31 King James (Christian)

          “This is the sum of Dharma (duty): Do naught unto others which would cause you pain if done to you.” Mahabharata, 5:1517 (Hindu)

          “None of you is a believer until you love for your neighbor what you love for yourself.” Muhammad (Islam)

          “Do for one who may do for you, that you may cause him thus to do.”  The Tale of the Eloquent Peasant, Ancient Egyptian original dates to 1970-1640 BCE and may be the earliest version ever written.

          “Respect for ALL LIFE is the foundation.”The Great Law of Peace. (Native American)

          “All things are our relatives: what we do to everything, we do to ourselves. All is really One.” Black Elk (Native American)

          “Do not wrong or hate your neighbor. For it is not he who you wrong, but yourself.” Pima Proverb (Native American)

          “What is hateful to you, do not to your fellowman. This is the law: all the rest is commentary.” Talmud, Shabbat 31a (Judaism)

          “. . .thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.” Leviticus 19:18

          “The law imprinted on the hearts of all men is to love the members of society as themselves.” Roman Pagan Religion

          “The heart of the person before you is a mirror. See there your own form.” Ko-ji-ki Hachiman Kasuga (Shinto)

          “Regard your neighbor’s gain as your own gain, and your neighbor’s loss as you own loss.” T’ai Shang Kan Ying P’len

          “We affirm and promote respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.” Unitarian principles

          “An it harm no one, do what thou wilt.” (i.e. do what ever you will, as long as it harms nobody, including yourself.) Wiccan Rede

          “One going to take a pointed stick to pinch a baby bird should first try it on himself to feel how it hurts.” Yoruba (Nigeria)

          “Whatever is disagreeable to yourself do not do unto others.” Shayast-na-Shayast 13:29 Zoroastrianism

Take The Time

Miriam Therese Winter

Take the time to sing a song, for all those people who don’t belong:

for the women wasted by defeat, the men condemned to walk the street,

the down and out we’ll never meet.

 

Take the time to say a prayer for all those people who face despair:

the starving multitudes who pray to make it through another day,

who watch their children march away. 

Take the time to hear the plea of every desperate refugee:

the millions who have had to flee

their lands, there loves, their liberty,

who turn in hope to you and me. 

Take the time to take a stand for peace and justice in every land.

Where power causes deep unrest,

come, take the part of the oppressed,

and then, says God, you will be blessed. 

          As we observe this day of prayer, we remember the one law that binds all great religions together:  the Golden Rule, and its call to love one another; to understand one another; and to treat with dignity and respect those with whom we share a brief moment on this Earth. – excerpt from May 7, 2009, President Barack Obama.

Heard in a third grade Bible Class, “Do unto otters as you would have otters do unto you.”

We Believe

July 29, 2009

“We believe that prayer changes things, or at the very least, creates avenues through which change may develop.  It has been suggested that each of us daily repeat this prayer for change.

We send forth into the ethers: For all nations – our planetary economy rebounds; re-employment begins again; consumer confidence returns; factory orders increase; sales everywhere turn up; housing sales begin to surge.

Our planetary economy is lifted. Universal Abundance guides this UPTURN, which is God in action.”

 This prayer was sent to Reverend Sandy Clark, our President.  The person that sent this in has asked to remain anonymous.

Summer 2009 Astrological Message

July 29, 2009

This summer mars and Venus are in conjunction in Taurus and Gemini.

Think men are from mars and women are from Venus. I recommend reading the book by this title.

The opportunity for all of us to benefit from this conjunction

is by confronting our masculine and feminine selves in

a productive way. We each need to look at ourselves objectively

and see if we are being aggressive when we need to be and also

see if we are being encompassing and inclusive with each other

when we need to be.

World affairs reveal this struggle very clearly. The United States a

nd Iran are just one example. Obama is masterful at balancing mars and Venus. 

Helpful hints by sun sign follow:

Aries-the area most affected by this conjunction is your

own value and worth, real value, not ego and communication

with others.

Taurus-the conjunction challenges you to see yourself as you

are to others, not how you think others see you.

Gemini-Gemini is emotionally neutral. Your challenge is to feel how to act be aggressive or harmonious or both at different times.

Cancer-home, nurturing, mother sign, emotional sign. Be honest

with what really angers you and deal with it. Don’t cover up

anger with harmonious self-deception.

Leo-strong will, loving sign always ready to help when the ego is

not in the way. Bring together the masculine and the feminine. 

Benevolent conflict is productive.

Virgo-like Gemini emotionally neutral, highly intellectual

and analytical. Mars and Venus will require you to take a

stand. There is nothing neutral about mars and Venus.

Libra- sign of cooperation with people and balancing interests your Venus part is natural. Venus rules Libra; thus it may be more difficult to bring out mars’ aggressiveness when necessary.

Scorpio-dedicated to the self esteem of others at their best,

manipulating selfishly at their worst.  Strong will and courage

are natural to Scorpio (mars). This is a good time to increase diplomatic

skills and the loving nature of Venus.

Sagittarius- fun loving student and teacher. Conceited Venus can be easy for a snag. Time for controlled aggression to accomplish something important to you is good.

Capricorn- father authority figure, knows what is best for

everyone at least they think so. Mars comes easy for Capricorn,

Venus, not so much. Thinking that you are loving and cooperative

is not the same as being loving and cooperative.

Aquarius-the great sign of friendship displays interest in the success of others as well as in their own interest. Teamwork is the key as this sign works well with Mars and Venus

Pisces- the compassionate and at the same time self deceptive Sign. Pisces knows within we are all one. It is difficult for Pisces to be aggressive smoothly. This is a good thing to work on. Venus is loving but without attaching strings.

A little bit about our Astrologer

Reverend Norman Breen

I have been doing spiritual astrological readings for twenty years. The accuracy of the sun signs to show what a person is doing in their current incarnation, I have found astrology valuable in helping me understand people. The entire birthchart reveals much more. With my astrology, the planets do not cause humans to act. The planets indicate what the person is working on, like the thermometer doesn’t cause temperature it reveals it. 

Humans are master of their own lives and make all their own choices, attracting from within the persons and experiences that assist them. Painful or joyful all choices are good.

I hope I will be helpful in facilitating a person to understand who they are and what they are doing.

 Love,

Reverend Norman Breen

First Edition of UCM Online Magazine!
 

 

Have you ever noticed when you are given the challenging opportunities of life that if you pray, meditate, and just trust your inner spirit that you are blessed by angels or an angel. Like so many non-profit and profit businesses in this climate UCM is facing some economic opportunities. We could choose to dig in entrench and become a part of a past generation, sort of like the dinosaurs or we could reach out retool and rethink who we are and what we represent. We chose the latter.

Reverend Kala Ambrose, of North Carolina has been creating new areas for us on our website. Many of you are following us on Twitter, chatting with us on Facebook and checking out the new UCM blog. We now have over 500 people receiving our spiritual messages from around the world, Australia, England, Asia and yes the US. Trustee Reverend Angela DeBry has been dialoguing with a Bishop in England, along with a young artist from Australia who sent her a tweet asking where we had been all her life. 

The most recent creation that Kala has woven for us is an online UCM magazine. The link is below, and this like our blog will be linked to the website.

 If you would like to contribute material to a future magazine, or place an advertisement please contact us at:  http://staff@u-c-m.org

 Please join with me in prayers of thanks to Kala for her many hours of work and Love. Thank you, Kala. Remember there are angels and if you believe they appear in the most delightful way.

Affirmation

I am a happy and cheerful human being. 

          As many of you are aware – I have been spending many hours at the hospital with my Mom. The time has been spent thinking about the quality of my life and those of others. I realized that people like being happy, I enjoy being sentimental and most of all everyone likes to laugh with our families and friends. This Joyful Noise includes poignant writings, some great jokes and also a chance to laugh out loud.

          Thank you all for your prayers and best wishes for my Mom Elenore and our family. 

A GLASS OF MILK

          One day, a poor boy who was selling goods from door to door to pay his way through school, found he had only one thin dime left, and he was hungry.

          He decided he would ask for a meal at the next house.  However, he lost his nerve when a lovely young woman opened the door.

          Instead of a meal he asked for a drink of water.  She thought he looked hungry so brought him a large glass of milk.  He drank it so slowly, and then asked, “How much do I owe you? ”

          “You don’t owe me anything,” she replied. “Mother has taught us never to accept pay for kindness.”

          He said, “Then I thank you from my heart.”

          As Howard Kelly left that house, he not only felt stronger physically, but his faith in God and man was strong also.  He had been ready to give up and quit.

          Many years later that same young woman became critically ill.  The local doctors were baffled.  They finally sent her to the big city, where they called in specialists to study her rare disease.

          Dr. Howard Kelly was called in for the consultation.  When he heard the name of the town she came from, a strange light filled his eyes.

          Immediately he rose and went down the hall of the hospital to her room.

          Dressed in his doctor’s gown he went in to see her.  He recognized her at once.

          He went back to the consultation room determined to do his best to save her life.  From that day he gave special attention to her case.

          After a long struggle, the battle was won.

          Dr. Kelly requested the business office to pass the final bill to him for approval.  He looked at it, then wrote something on the edge, and the bill was sent to her room.  She feared to open it, for she was sure it would take the rest of her life to pay for it all.  Finally she looked, and something caught her attention on the side of the bill. She read these words…

                             Paid in full with one glass of milk

                             (Signed) Dr. Howard Kelly.

          Tears of joy flooded her eyes as her happy heart prayed:  ‘Thank You, God, that Your love has spread broad through human hearts and hands.

          There’s a saying which goes something like this:  Bread cast on the water comes back to you.  The good deed you do today may benefit you or someone you love at the least expected time. If you never see the deed again at least you will have made the world a better place – And, after all, isn’t that what life is all about?

          The hardest thing to learn in life is which bridge to cross and which — To burn!

The Most Beautiful Flower

 Author: Cherly L. Costello-Forshey

The park bench was deserted as I sat down to read
Beneath the long, straggly branches of an old willow tree
Disillusioned by life with good reason to frown
For the world was intent on dragging me down.
And if that weren’t enough to ruin my day,
A young boy out of breath approached me, all tired from play.
He stood right before me with his head tilted down
And said with great excitement, “Look what I found!”
In his hand was a flower, and what a pitiful sight,
With its petals all worn – not enough rain, or too little light.
Wanting him to take his dead flower and go off to play,
I faked a small smile and then shifted away.
But instead of retreating he sat next to my side
And placed the flower to his nose
And declared with overacted surprise,
“It sure smells pretty and it’s beautiful, too.
That’s why I picked it; here, it’s for you.”
The weed before me was dying or dead.
No vibrant colors: orange, yellow or red.
But I knew I must take it, or he might never leave.
So I reached for the flower and replied. “Just what I need.”
But instead of him placing the flower in my hand,
He held it mid-air without reason or plan.
It was then that I noticed for the very first time
That weed-toting boy could not see: he was blind.
I heard my voice quiver; tears shone in the sun
As I thanked him for picking the very best one.
Through the eyes of a blind child, at last I could see
The problem was not with the world; the problem was me.
And for all of those times I myself had been blind,
I vowed to see the beauty in life,
And appreciate every second that’s mine.
And then I held that wilted flower up to my nose
and breathed in the fragrance of a beautiful rose
And smiled as I watched that young boy,
Another weed in his hand,
About to change the life of an unsuspecting old man. 

          A minister was completing a Temperance sermon. With great emphasis he said, “If I had all the beer in the world, I’d take it and pour it into the river.”

          With even greater emphasis he said, “And if I had all the wine in the world, I’d take it and pour it into the river.”

          And then finally, shaking his fist in the air, he said, “And if I had all the whiskey in the world, I’d take it and pour it into the river.”

          Sermon complete, he sat down.

          The song leader stood very cautiously and announced with a smile, nearly laughing, “For our closing song, let us sing Hymn #365, “Shall We Gather at the River.”

          Father Norton woke up Sunday morning and realizing it was an exceptionally beautiful and sunny early spring day, decided he just had to play golf.

          So, he told the Associate Pastor that he was feeling sick and persuaded him to say Mass for him that day.

          As soon as the Associate Pastor left the room, Father Norton headed out of town to a golf course about forty miles away.

          This way he knew he wouldn’t accidentally meet anyone he knew from his parish.  Setting up on the first tee, he was alone. After all, it was Sunday morning and everyone else was in church!

          At about this time, Saint Peter leaned over to the Lord while looking down from the heavens and exclaimed, “You’re not going to let him get away with this, are you?”

          The Lord sighed, and said, “No, I guess not.”

          Just then Father Norton hit the ball and it shot straight towards the pin, dropping just short of it, rolled up and fell into the hole.

          IT WAS A 420 YARD HOLE IN ONE!

          St. Peter was astonished.  He looked at the Lord and asked, “Why did you let him do that?”

          The Lord smiled and replied, “Who’s he going to tell?”

          A minister decided to do something a little different one Sunday Morning. He said ‘Today, in church, I am going to say a single word and you are going to help me preach.’

          ‘Whatever single word I say, I want you to sing whatever hymn that comes to your mind. ‘

          The pastor said to the congregation, ‘I am going to say one word and I want you to respond with a song.’ He shouted out “cross.”

          Immediately the congregation in unison said, The Old Rugged Cross.

          The pastor hollered out “grace” and the congregations started singing Amazing Grace – how sweet the sound.

          The pastor said “there is power” and the congregation sang There is Power in the Blood.

          Finally the Pastor said “sex” and there was total silence.  Everyone was looking around in shocked silence when finally a little 87 year old grandmother from the back of the church stood up and in a loud voice started singing:  Precious Moments.

          One Sunday morning a mother went in to wake her son and tell him it was time to get ready for church, to which he replied, “I’m not going.”

          “Why not?” she asked.

          “I’ll give you two good reasons,” he said.

          “(1) They don’t like me, and (2), I don’t like them.”

          His mother replied, “I’ll give YOU two good reasons why YOU SHOULD go to church.”

          “(1) You’re 59 years old, and (2) you’re the pastor!”

The young couple invited their elderly priest for Sunday dinner. While they were in the kitchen preparing the meal, the priest asked their son what they were having for dinner.

               “Goat”, the little boy replied.

            “Goat?” replied the startled man of the cloth, “Are you sure about that?”

            “Yep,” said the youngster. “I heard Dad say to Mom, ‘Today is just as good as any to have the old goat for dinner.’ “
