We hear a lot of news that isn’t so good these days. Some is troubling, some induces stress while still other news is just shocking and troubling.
Each of us probably craves to hear more good news. For instance, when I shared good news with a relative recently, she sighed “thank goodness, we were in need of some good news.”
Is there reliable, practical good news that we can turn to everyday? (Here’s a hint: the word gospel means good news).
I love and cherish, more than anything, what Christian Science has revealed to me about the gospel: that heaven isn’t a far off place, but it is here and now with us; we are each spiritual beings right now made in the image and likeness of Spirit; we are living eternal life now; we have an inseparable relationship with our loving, perfect Creator; God is our Father and our Mother who nurtures, comforts, protects, sustains and leads us; each of us has a perfect, indestructible relationship with God.
I often breathe a sigh of relief when I remind myself of this Truth every day.
We have the duty and privilege to protect and love our consciousness. Have you ever thought of your consciousness as a place to protect and love? Even if you are not someone who watches or reads much news, we still get “news” coming into our thought all the time. When you are driving it might be an image of an accident; or when you check your bank account, it may be a feeling of stress; or when you hear someone cough, it may be a fear of sickness.
It’s important to your life, health and well-being to guard your consciousness. And one way to do this is to take plenty of time each day, to refresh your consciousness with the good news that makes up the fabric of your being and is life everlasting. This will sustain and satisfy you and each of us more than anything else can.
