“When the destination is desirable, expectation speeds our progress. The struggle for Truth makes one strong instead of weak, resting instead of wearying one” (Science and Health, page 426)
Peace, joy, home, heaven, harmony are certainly a desirable destination! Our journey, our movement forward by Soul’s awakening can be seen not as an arduous climb, but as a safe and swift passage from the limited to the limitless, from the promise to the fulfillment.
It is important to focus not on the obstructions and impediments and various human limits in achieving any right thing, but on the goal and God’s support of it. We can love the nurturing of an idea. We can enjoy the seed, then the bud, then the full blossom, with equal gratitude and satisfaction. In doing so, we begin to see more good appear, naturally and effortlessly. We are in the midst of goodness itself rather than striving for it, and so peace, joy, heaven, home, harmony are being seen now instead of hidden in a distant hope.
Striving for Truth, for the fullness of our rights as children of God and the reality of things, does not need to be wearying, wearing, depleting. If we stay focused on the manna of the day, we will find that we are always sufficiently fed, always infused with new energy and expectation. Right where we are, Life is revealing the absolutely right portion of good to sustain us and to keep God’s loving promise alive and active and true, and that is fun!
