“Life and goodness are immortal. Let us then shape our views of existence into loveliness, freshness, and continuity, rather than into age and blight.” (Science and Health, page 246)
Don’t let yourself be duped. Life is good and eternal. The presentations of aging and deterioration are not our story. They shouldn’t be what we focus our thoughts and conversation upon. The belief in ugliness and loss and weakness should not captivate us and preoccupy us. We need to and can wake up to reality.
When we focus on doom and diminishment our days are clouded with limitation, fear, depression, discouragement. We experience the unnecessary darkness of belief, when the Truth is really full of light, inviting us forward into Life’s forever renewing and satisfying moments, hours, years. We need to get off the bandwagon of that expectation of decline and the gloomy mental and spoken conversations about it.
All that is good is immortal. God is our Life and His qualities are preserved forever. There is no spoiling of His substance, no wearing out, no wearying. Age is not relevant in the eternal now. We exist forever as God’s children. Nothing about us needs to be old, jaded, apathetic, vulnerable, depressed, resigned. Life is full and flourishing for all always. Life is God, and He is always at the point of magnificence. Keep thought open to the sweet surprise of a new day, a new sense of life and its perpetual promise, beauty, energy, and joy.
