EBUP79: The Great Intrapreneurial Revolution - 2 - The Quest for Personal Excellence
This is the second of an eight-talk series on how to find self-realization and fulfillment through our work and career. Three of the talks are missing, so I have only five to offer. This one is about personal excellence. A phrase Eric repeats several times was learned from his mother, May Butterworth, also a Unity minister. The phrase is “Good, better, best. I will never let it rest until my good is better and my better is best.” It’s a great affirmation and this is a great motivating talk about how to achieve your best.

EBUP78: The Great Intrapreneurial Revolution - 1 - The Worth Ethic
This is the first of an eight-talk series on how to find self-realization and fulfillment through our work and career. I have only five of the original eight talks, but these that we have will certainly get us on our way to a new sense of what Eric calls The Great Intrapreneurial Revolution.

EBUP77: You Gotta Believe
Eric Butterworth elaborates in this talk on Matthew 21:21 “If ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do what is done to the fig tree, but even if ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou taken up and cast into the sea, it shall be done.” In fact, he doesn’t just elaborate on the passage, but he explains how that is literally true in today’s world. This is a great talk on faith.

EBUP76: Working With Law
Eric shares several notable ideas in this talk: “get out of the grandstand”, our “acceptance quotient”, working with law, THIO “time has its opportunities”. If you need encouragement to rise up out of a slump, this is a classic Eric Butterworth talk that will get you going.

EBUP75: Why Doesn't God?
This is Eric Butterworth’s answer to "Why does God allow evil and suffering?" If you listen, you will find that there are two parts to Eric’s answer. He acknowledges that evil and suffering is caused by what we refer in Unity to “by right of consciousness.” But Eric concludes that we should not ask “why doesn’t God, but why don’t I? ... Let God be the answer through you. Let God be the flow of love, of life, and protection, and you’ll be the channel.” In my opinion this is an example of how Metaphysical Christianity offers a much better story than traditional Christianity.

EBUP74: Whither Goest Thou
This talk is so powerful that the audience applauded for a half minute at the end. Eric deserved it. He spoke about how we build walls for protection and how the fortress we build up becomes our prison. This lesson is based on an Old Testament story from Zechariah and Eric concludes "The prophet’s ideal is not a word of fortress cities and societies, but unwalled cities and free and open communication and commerce between nations… Jerusalem should be inhabited as a village without walls." Whew! What a lesson for today!

EBUP73: Whining or Refining
Eric concludes this talk with "Resolve that never again would you allow yourself to think of your ordeal, your limitation, your handicap. Resolve to think of the constant opportunities provided in life that enable you to deal with the condition, to refine it, and to go throw it. And give thanks for this ability to look at yourself, to see the great potentialities that are yours. Make commitment now that you will stop whining, and commence refining."

EBUP72: Where You Are
Eric says in this lesson "Wherever you are in time and space, be there. Live the moment and the experience completely. There may be regrets about the past, there may be apprehensions about the future. But what about today? What about the opportunity for joy and fulfillment in this moment just where you are. One of the great discoveries, which is somewhat puzzling to many persons, is the truth that now is all the time there is. Now is all the time there is, this moment."

EBUP71: A One-Word Religion
This recording is important because it reveals some important things about a state of consciousness known as Solipsism. Solipsism can be a very troublesome philosophical condition, especially in Unity circles. We need to be aware of what solipsism is and how it can be misused. As a side note, this recording also reveals the likely source of Eric’s well-known statement that there is an “Allness in every Illness.” Click through to the link for a lengthy analysis of this talk: http://www.truthunity.net/ebup71

EBUP70: The Highway to Freedom
From the content of the talk it is apparent that this talk was given in October 1987, the Sunday after the stock market dropped by 22%. Eric Butterworth served in Manhattan NYC and those who attended his services were highly impacted by the market drop. So this talk is what Eric Butterworth would have said to us in our present situation. Much of what he says is contained in other talks but it is Eric's advice at his best in meeting an overwhelming challenge.

EBUP69: When Things Go Wrong
I believe this is the very message that Eric Butterworth would have given if the COVID-19 virus had occurred during his lifetime. Eric says, "Some years ago I was facing an extremely disturbing situation in my own life. I was feeling as if I had a great weight on my shoulders. Casting about for a helpful insight I was browsing through the Bible. For some reason, my attention focused on the words, “It came to pass.” These are innocuous words. They have no pertinent significance in themselves. But I kept returning to that phrase: it came to pass. The realization dawned; it has been one of the great discoveries of my own truth seeking life, the realization that this challenge did not come into my life to remain as a permanent fixture, it came to pass. This was the birth in my conscious of the idea of the flow of life."

EBUP68: Unfolding the Real You
Going back as far as the mid-1970s, Eric held a summer retreat in Allentown, Pennsylvania. This is an early Sunday morning talk where he describes what goes on during those retreats. He describes the many "mini-selves" that we experience and explains how the retreat process can help us understand our inner dialog of these mini-selves and how we can find and unfold the "real you."

EBUP66: Your Covenant for Living
In this talk, Eric Butterworth says "Charles Fillmore, was used to say truth demonstrates itself. It demonstrates itself. You don’t have to make a demonstration. Truth will demonstrate itself, if you make a covenant and keep it. You get yourself in tune and decree that you will keep your contact, your conscious connection, if you keep yourself as August says, synchronize with the divine law."

EBUP65: In the Beginning
This is an incredible talk by Eric Butterworth. In 52 minutes he explains why this day is not our day to "go through things" but rather to "grow through them." If the stress of these days is a burden on you, this talk by Eric Butterworth will convince you that this is our opportunity to grow. This is the message we all need to hear today.

EBUP64: A Technique for Self-Acceptance
In this talk about self-acceptance, Eric Butterworth says "So, if a Goliath is taunting you with threats and boasts, then like David, go forth in the name of the Lord and take with you the smooth stones of humility, which means to let go. Really let go all of your sense of inadequacy, self-appreciation. Realize that there is a divine process within you, a great God self and knowing this, knowing that you are a unique individualization of God, give yourself a pat on the back occasionally, and self-acceptance…"

EBUP63: The Eternal Message of Easter
Eric shares the theme of this Easter talk: "There’s an ancient Chinese aphorism, which incidentally, is on the front of your program today: If you keep in your heart a green bough, I have heard there will come one day to stay a singing bird. If you keep in your heart a green bough, I have heard there will come one day to stay a singing bird. So if you catch the eternal message of Easter and are inspired by it, you’ll keep in your heart green bough of expectancy, then you will come one day to actually experience the singing bird of health or the vision of health."

EBUP62: How to Recession-Proof Your Life—4—Tighten Your Ship
At 19 minutes and 40 seconds into this podcast Eric Butterworth says "In the work of public health and maybe talk about a particular disease which has reached epidemic proportions. There are medical researchers who were talking about 'contagion through consciousness.' I can remember a writing in the proceedings of a Medical Journal about 'psychic infection', that the real contagion is mostly in the mind." "How to Recession-Proof Your Life—4—Tighten Your Ship" is a classic lesson about "tightening our ship" through the words we use. He opens by recalling the World War II slogan "loose lips sink ships." The same slogan applies to use today, according to Eric Butterworth in this part 4 of a four part series on How to Recession-Proof our life.

EBUP60: How to Recession-Proof Your Life—2—Security In a Changing World
"How to Recession-Proof Your Life—2—Security In a Changing World" is the second of four lessons given by Eric Butterworth loosely based on Spiritual Economics. This talk is very applicable to today's time. In fact, he writes "In the past six months, we’ve seen changes that few of us would’ve believed we would see in our lifetime." Little did Erick know what we know today. I highly recommend that you sit quiet and give Eric your full attention for these 32 minutes.
