Ever worry about what people will think?

 

Ever worry about what others will think?

 

This is something that I’ve dealt with for some time, but lately I feel I’m making progress with it.

 

In my high school years, I adopted the attitude “I don’t care what people think”.  This human attitude is not necessarily loving or spiritual.

 

Instead, I’ve begun to realize God (Spirit, Life, and Truth) is the only seer, thinker, doer, and be-er.

 

God is Love 24/7.  God is knowing love, thinking love, being love – all the time!

 

Spirit is the only cause and creator, and we reflect Him/Her.  This reflection of Spirit is called man (and woman and child).  So, we only have to think, feel and see what Spirit, Love, God is thinking, feeling, and seeing.  Just like an image in a mirror.

 

We don’t need to worry about human opinions.

 

For me, this really zaps the fear or worry about what others might be thinking.  Because if it’s not happening with God and His creation then it’s not happening in reality.

 

And who wants to be involved in unreality?

 

Spending time worrying or thinking about what others might be thinking is kind of like deciding to live in a dream instead of living awake.

 

Now when I’m in conversation with others or thinking about someone, I see what Love is seeing and knowing about them.  Focusing on the higher self in everyone frees me.  It denies that I, or anyone, has a “self” separate from God.

 

We get to see our real identity – in ourselves and everyone.  Though it may take some mental discipline at first, it gets easier with practice!

 

Have fun with it!  ❤

What is the Scientific meaning of salvation?

I was reading the weekly Bible lesson this morning (which is comprised of citations from the Bible and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures) and it talks about “denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world” (Titus 2:12).

I began thinking about how the Christ (the activity of God) “saves” us from sin.

I think popular theology says we are “saved” from sin so that we don’t go to hell afterwards and have eternal life.

However, Scientific understanding realizes “sin” (or ‘missing the mark’ as the Latin implies) to be a kind of cloud that covers up God’s light, grace, and love.

So this “salvation” from sin, is actually saving us right now in this present moment.  Sin results from the belief that we are separated from God, good, divine Love.  But we are not and never have been separated with that Love.  We are at one with God, divine Love, right now.

When we live in accord with God’s spiritual nature we are open and receptive to more light, more opportunity and God’s blessings.  We are magnifying good, which is another term for God, and therefore we experience more good in our lives.  We are able to have better, more enriched relationships; confidence in knowing God is supplying all of our home, financial, and job-related needs; and a greater sense of peace along with loving our neighbor & communities better.

So this salvation isn’t meant to deprive us of all the joys of material living now so we can have eternal bliss after.  It is realizing, since God is Spirit, to live in accord with Spirit, to be at-one with Spirit, is where true goodness, peace, and, therefore, happiness comes from.  This is realizing eternal life now – the seamlessness and continuity of life, being, and existence right now.
