Happy New Year!
I hope everyone had a great holiday and that you are all enjoying the freshness and spiritual promise of a new year!
I often contemplate this statement when I pray:
We tread on forces. Withdraw them, and creation must collapse. Human knowledge calls them forces of matter; but divine Science declares that they belong wholly to divine Mind, are inherent in this Mind, and so restores them to their rightful home and classification.(Science and Health, p. 124)
Sometimes it seems like everything is on the verge of falling apart. I contemplate this statement to know that my home, family, and society are fully sustained by divine Spirit. Goodness is natural and normal. God made us and sustains us. He made us healthy, harmonious and good. These attributes are spiritual forces, or laws, that we can draw on and underlie our being.
God’s being is infinity, freedom, harmony, and boundless bliss (Science and Health, p. 481). And we reflect that being. We are at one with that being.
So next time that things feel shaky remember that you draw on forces of good (a real force of nature) which sustains your very being.
