An evening of Unity Meditation Thursday August 21st @ 7:30 pm at the Ethical Humanist Society in Garden City,
38 Old Country Road
Garden City NY 11530
For thousands of years, the science of meditation has been practiced and studied by aspirants who sought to make their lives more serene, creative, and fulfilling.
Meditation will give you the capacity to improve your health, your relationships, and the skillfulness of all your activities.
This is because meditation can give you something that no other technique can accomplish. It introduces you to yourself on all levels, and finally leads you to the center of consciousness within, from where consciousness flows.
From the preface to Meditation and its Practice
We hope you will join us for a period of rest and renewal.
Come for a taste of Peace from 7:30-8:30 pm.
In the Unity tradition, the program is provided on a love offering basis.
"I have set before you
an open door and no one can shut it..
You have kept my word and have not denied
my name." -Revelation 3:8
When the East Germans built the wall in Berlin, Frau Schulze lived on the ground
floor of an apartment house smack on the border. The sidewalk was West Berlin,
but the apartment house was in East Berlin.
The windows on the ground floor were bricked up after a number of people had
escaped through them. The remaining residents were moved to the upper floor
"They moved me up, too, and when I got to the new place
I sat there as if I were paralyzed," she remarked. She had no lights, but
plenty of light from the searchlights outside. Her sleep was interrupted
constantly with shots, sirens, the voices of West Berliners urging someone to
escape and the vulgarities of the East German guards.
Finally, Frau Schulze had enough. She climbed out on her
window sill and was immediately spotted by West Berlin
police. They called out the fire brigade with the nets and urged her to jump.
Then she heard the door of her apartment kicked open and two East German guards
grabbed her. Finally, she struggled free and jumped-to freedom. She opened the
gate! It's never to late to begin!
Schulze was 87 when I heard her story. At 77 years of age she took the plunge
toward a new life.
"I still shudder a bit when I think about it,"
Frau Schulze said, "But it was worth it I couldn't stand their
politics," she added, shaking a gnarled finger for emphasis.
