Have “non-stick” thinking

What does it mean to have nonstick thinking? All the little bumps and jostles in life don’t get you down.

When those little annoyances try to rub you the wrong way, let them slide right off. We can have a well-oiled pan where those slights or aggressive thoughts/actions just slide right off. They can’t harm you!

…keep your minds so filled with Truth and Love…It is plain that nothing can be added to the mind already full. There is no door through which evil can enter, and no space for evil to fill in a mind filled with goodness. Good thoughts are an impervious armor;…The right thinker abides under the shadow of the Almighty. His thoughts can only reflect peace, good will towards men, health, and holiness…Mary Baker Eddy

Don’t let anything pull you down. We don’t want spider web thinking where the little annoying actions of others get caught and stuck. No! We want clear and clean, joy-filled and grateful thinking! A consciousness that is always communing with and praising God. So let all the dirty stuff just slip away. Don’t let it stick in your thought!
And the good news is, even if one of those pestering thoughts finds a way through, you can always take that scrub brush of divine Truth and Love to wipe away any negativity from your thinking — through pausing and remembering your relationship with God, your spiritual individuality and how much God loves you.
Let God communicate what belongs to you!

Watching or watching out?

Jesus said: “…I say unto all, watch.” (Mark 13:37)

I’ve often pondered the distinction between “watching” and “watching out”.

I realize that watching out keeps our focus on error – on the bad stuff – and brings with it a sense of insecurity and paranoia.

On the other hand, watching or keeping watch is a spiritual activity which means mentally staying alert and keeping our focus on God, good. Watching can also mean watching your thoughts and determine if thoughts are from God or not.

Thoughts from God always include a sense of spiritual dominion, freedom, peace & joy.

These are the good thoughts – the only thoughts we need to listen to. Imagine living in a society where everyone only listened to good thoughts? It’s an interesting thing to think about.

We tread on forces…

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.
