Cherish your inner child

We all have an inner child. We can never grow out of it! This inner child is always there — waiting to be awakened, delighted in, nurtured, cherished, protected, listened to, and admired.

It doesn’t matter how old we are, we can never lose our inner child. This child within is our Christ identity. It is who we are as a divine idea of a divine Mind. We live, move, and have our being in this perfect Mind where all is healthy, well, calm, holy, and confident.

If we don’t feel that good is present — we can challenge that! We have the right to always feel and see what God is giving and knowing for us. We can claim those spiritual gifts, know that we have them, and express them as we go forward.

Claim your right to health, peace, and freedom. Claim your right to be fearless, courageous, and embraced in good. Know that God only wants good for you, and you live in the divine Kingdom. Know there is nothing that can tempt or trick you. Live with confidence of your divine rights because God gives each us the right to be free.

Express all that you want to see in the world — all the love, childlikeness, joy, innocence, and goodness. Radiate it. You will feel lighter, and the atmosphere of the world will be uplifted.

Overcoming personality 

I’m trying to be alert to the need not to glorify or belittle someone else’s personality. Sure there are some people that we get along with more than others, but looking deeply to see the spiritual nature — the God bestowed nature that includes an inexhaustible list of spiritual qualities — is helping me perceive divine reality. The actual spiritual substance that is underlying being. 

For instance, if someone is sick, I can see that person spiritually as whole, poised, receptive, loving, at one with God and including all right ideas from God, while tending to their human need with compassion and humility. 

Jesus beheld in Science the perfect man, who appeared to him where sinning mortal man appears to mortals. In this perfect man the Saviour saw God’s own likeness, and this correct view of man healed the sick. Thus Jesus taught that the kingdom of God is intact, universal, and that man is pure and holy.*

This spiritual perspective heals.  

This can be helpful in an office setting as well. That horrible boss is actually God’s spiritual, valuable, loved and loving child. He or she is the embodiment of light. Discerning even one good thing, one quality such as compassion toward their family or honesty with their colleagues, can heal the situation because it melts the suggestions of evil that say that all is material and limited. 

This is absolutely helpful in looking at political leaders. That great act didn’t come from that particular person; it came from God giving the right idea — expressing Himself — to the people so that it would be a blessing to the community. 

Giving the credit to God helps me realize everyone’s innate Christly nature and capacity to be receptive to the ideas and messages coming to them from God. I can recognize that we all have the power to listen to God and that we don’t have to fear because it is our Father’s good pleasure to give us the Kingdom (Luke 12:32). 

All of us can recognize the Kingdom within (Luke 17:21) and work together effectively to see that.
Let’s rejoice!

Overcoming the lies of evil

sunset-192978_640Evil disguises itself as something good — something that is “out there” that we have to get.

This is illustrated in the Bible passages where Jesus overcomes the temptations of evil:

...the tempter came and said to him, “If you are the Son of God, command these stones to become loaves of bread.” But he answered, “It is written, “‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.’”

Jesus knew: I already have all that I need in God. God is my life and my purpose. He supplies all that I need and I can not be afraid or tempted.

“If you are the Son of God, throw yourself down, for it is written, “‘He will command his angels concerning you,’ and “‘On their hands they will bear you up, lest you strike your foot against a stone.’” Jesus said to him, “Again it is written, ‘You shall not put the Lord your God to the test.’”

I already know that I am loved and cared for by God. I do not have to put God to the test. I am secure in my relationship with God, good.

Again, the devil took him to a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory. And he said to him, “All these I will give you, if you will fall down and worship me.”
Then Jesus said to him, “Be gone, Satan! For it is written, “‘You shall worship the Lord your God and him only shall you serve.’”

God has already given me, and all His children, the spiritual Kingdom of Heaven. Evil tries to gratify itself, but our Kingdom is given to us freely by God and filled with spiritual beauty, joy, freedom and love. There is no hatred, fear or disease in our Kingdom. It is whole and peaceful. It is the reign of Love and Spirit within us — within our consciousness.

Every child of God has the power and ability to overcome these temptations of evil and see the Kingdom of Heaven within. No one is left out of this Kingdom. This will lead to individual peace and freedom for us and the world.
