“We cannot fill vessels already full. They must first be emptied. Let us disrobe error. Then, when the winds of God blow, we shall not hug our tatters close about us.” (Science and Health, page 201)
The old and ill-fitting coat needs to be given up. The familiar yet never satisfying way of thinking about ourselves and our lives needs to be surrendered, cast off, and seen for the shroud it is, hiding our magnificence. We have to empty the vessel that is full of memories, limited views, and a false sense of a personality that may be flawed or lacking and yet we feel is our cross to bear. We are better than this.
The Love of God must be allowed to fill that vessel of our own thinking and being. This powerful substance needs to be accepted without condition, reservation, excuse, or argument. It must be claimed because Principle demands it. The false and limited can’t have a place in infinite Truth and Love. So, we need to assertively clear ourselves of the charges against us, and start with a clean slate on which Life can write our true story.
The winds of God must blow. His powerful grace must chase away the errors of sense so that He, our own true Soul, can be fully seen and felt. We must be willing to let go of ourselves. We must be willing to let go of a personal sense of what we are and who we are and where we’ve been and what are prospects are. This false cloak calling itself personality, heredity, human experience, physicality, isn’t keeping us warm or beautiful. Give up with glee the necessity to hold to that human ego as if your life depends on it. In Truth, your life, your true potential, gloriousness, peace, and power, depends on you giving it up.
