hazlittmag"We were practitioners of a marginal religion called Unity. A denomination of the New Thought movement, it’s something of a lovechild of Christian Science and Zen Buddhism. It was founded in 1889 by Charles Fillmore and his wife, Myrtle, when Myrtle attended a faith healing seminar and soon after claimed to have cured herself of tuberculosis. The central principle of Unity is that consciousness shapes material reality. Everything from ill health to world war can be chalked up to wrong thinking. Likewise, right thinking can bring about a state of harmony: good health, agape love, global peace—heaven on earth." @mothtomouth returns with the latest installment of Mouthful, a yearlong exploration of food leading up to her ten-year anniversary of recovery from anorexia and bulimia.
