“Every valley of sin must be exalted and every mountain of selfishness be brought low, that the highway of our God may be prepared in Science.” (Science and Health, page 61)
Our way is straight and easy and natural before us when we are obedient to the divine nature. The dark valleys that we seem to grope through must be elevated, our thought brought into line with that which is good and right for us and for all. We can’t continue in a false sense of ourselves and walk freely. That cloak of error, shame, ignorance, anger is too heavy and entirely unnecessary.
And we likewise can’t be true to our own identity and to God’s purpose when we uplift a personal and egotistical self, keep it always front and center, and make it responsible for either our triumph or our downfall. The mountaintop of personal success, selfish achievements at all costs or without heart, can never be a place of contentment or serenity. Our Life is Love and this Love is God. It must be obeyed.
This evening out of our perspective and purpose, this cleansing of that which is not in line with God’s goodness and Life and Love, is taking place. God’s purpose is that we express Him, the right and satisfying Life. This requires that we walk in His intention, without the sin that does not dignify us or the selfishness that does not bless us. God has a perfect way for us, and it is and can only be, His way.
