“To the burdened and weary, Jesus saith: ‘Come unto me.’ O glorious hope! there remaineth a rest for the righteous, a rest in Christ, a peace in Love. The thought of it stills complaint; the heaving surf of life’s troubled sea foams itself away, and underneath is a deep-settled calm.” (Message for 1902, by Mary Baker Eddy p. 19)
The thrashing waves of sense are ready for a calming. The burdens that seem to weigh us down are ready to be lifted, and our peace revealed. That true serenity is always ours to know, and, in fact, it is always our true state of being. We can claim that sweet gentleness within, and know that we need seek no farther for it than our own heart of hearts. Even the thought of it settles us.
We do have our rest at hand, our comfortable steadiness and safety readily available. This irresistible Christ is within us, naturally and necessarily calming fear and showing us our security. Seek and find that calm that is deep-settled, that endures within us even when the senses and human fears want to rile us and wrestle us down. We have that pure peace, it is always ours and we can recognize and claim it in spite of the lies of mortal mind, because we know the Christ-promise is true.
And knowing that our God is indeed All and always with us, we discover our hope. And our hope is glorious, uplifting us to the true consciousness, that real perception of heaven here and now, peaceful and powerful in its peacefulness. The sweet voice within that says “all is well” can be heard and accepted. All is well. Christ tells the Truth, and all the raging, foaming, fury of material sense must obey, be still, and we must have our righteous rest in Love.
