THIS IS Ash Wednesday, the first day of Lent–the time of preparation for Easter. Let us think about what Lent really is.
Lent is a time of realizing and of revealing man's divine potential.
What do you need to rise above? During this time of Lent, you can rise above it, and be about your Father's business.
What do you have to meet? During this time of Lent, you can meet whatever you have to meet, and meet it triumphantly.
What do you long to call forth in the way of resources–mental, physical, spiritual? During this time of Lent, you can call forth all that you desire, all that you dream, all that you imagine.
You can call forth all things, you can meet all things, you can rise to new heights of understanding through the Christ in you that breaks all bondage, that enables you to step forth in glory, that lifts you up with jubilance and with joy into resurrecting life.
"Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied." MATT. 5:6.

Unity was founded in 1889 in Kansas City, Missouri, by Charles and Myrtle Fillmore. After Myrtle used prayer and affirmations to heal lifelong ailments, her friends became interested in how she accomplished the healing. The Fillmores published their first spiritual publication in 1889, and over time the Unity movement grew from small prayer circles in living rooms to the worldwide movement it is today.
