“The continual contemplation of existence as material and corporeal—as beginning and ending, with birth, decay, and dissolution as its component stages—hides the true and spiritual Life, and causes our standard to trail in the dust.” (Science and Health, page 550)
Let’s turn our gaze from the confusing and disappointing scenario that mortal life would present. This mesmerizing cacophony of human experiences, physiology, dangers, misunderstanding, fear, limitation, is not getting us any closer to the Truth of things. It drowns out the harmony that is actually singing forth, and the peace that is our present and true state of being.
We sell ourselves and our lives short when we make this mortal picture the point from which to evaluate our potential and to see the glory of our lives. Life is more than a series of necessary consequences of time and matter and the various phases of mortality. Life is a splendor, a wonder, a blessing. There is nothing real or natural about limitation, deterioration, or even mere survival.
Look away from the soap opera. Shake yourself from the sense of fixation on the mortal details of life—what it was, what it is, what it will be. Start with a fresh perspective, the real, crisp and clear vision of existence as born in Spirit and built of Spirit’s qualities and Love’s intention. Don’t buy the load of garbage about life, but instead demand to truly know what you already possess—a life that is full in goodness, new each day, and perpetually harmonious, inviting, satisfying, and yours to live and love!
