“The atmosphere of earth, kinder than the atmosphere of mortal mind, leaves catarrh to the latter. Colds, coughs, and contagion are engendered solely by human theories.” (Science and Health, page 220)
The earth is not our enemy. Nature, climate, atmosphere cannot be dangerous to its inhabitants. God has created all, spiritually, and it must necessarily harmonize. The world belongs to God, to His nature and goodness, and so it is loving. It is kind.
Mortal mind alone seems to create and perpetuate an earth that causes us to suffer, to fear, to live less than freely. Mortal mind attempts to create arbitrary laws about our lives, proposing vulnerabilities, contagious beliefs, allergies and sensitivities. These unloving propositions need not be accepted as our burden, our struggle, our expectation, or anyone else’s. We can deny them and Love’s laws will back us up.
The “cold season” is as arbitrary a distinction as is Ground Hog’s Day or football season. It is a proposition that does not threaten or frighten the birds or the butterflies, or keep them from taking wing. Human theories have gained momentum and force through acceptance, but that doesn’t make them real or natural or necessary. God’s laws are over all, are constant, and they are kind. Let’s obey Him and rejoice in our everlasting freedom every hour on every corner of this beautiful earth!
