Mary Baker Eddy, a spiritual leader and teacher (1821-1910) asked, “When will the ages understand the Ego, and realize only one God, one Mind or intelligence?” (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 204)
She fully accepted and taught that we can be governed by divine Mind here, and do not have to wait until some future time when we can feel this harmony and oneness.
This is the definition of I AM: “God; incorporeal and eternal Mind; divine Principle; the only Ego” (Ibid, p. 588).
There is an eternal Principle governing us – consistently, harmoniously and unchanging. This divine Principle is within us guiding, governing, and speaking.
When we try to simply be ‘good humans’ we end up suffering. We tend to think if we have to do enough things and say all the right things and then all these will add up. Perhaps we even think this will get us into heaven later. We end up feeling stressed and afraid. We may even feel we have an effect on another’s salvation or well-being.
But the Truth is that we are at one with God. It is natural for us to hear His voice – so natural that we may not even realize it’s His voice speaking to us (and may think it’s our own!). But God, divine Love, is communicating with us all the time and is able to make Himself/Herself heard. God has never left us and is not leaving us now or in the future.
