“To calculate one’s life-prospects from a material basis, would infringe upon spiritual law and misguide human hope.” (Science and Health, page 319)
Our life-prospects are so much grander than we think. Calculating what our life is, was, or will be from a material basis is necessarily disappointing. Matter is always limiting and it is usually pretty much of a downer! Finiteness boxes us in and gives us a sentence, if not for today, somewhere down the road.
How often do we think we have missed our chance, that the best is over, or that we will never accomplish this thing because of our age, our personality, our experiences, other people, etc., etc. Isn’t this view depressing and doesn’t it even make our present moment shadowed and heavy and full of apathy or at the very least, lethargic?
Spiritual law has an entirely different plan for you and it is one that starts with satisfaction and joy and ends with an expanded sense of that! Don’t let a material sense of what life is, was, or could be, dash your hopes for something wonderful. A spiritual calculation will lead you to a much better conclusion–one which excites, energizes, and opens the heart, the thought, and the eyes to blessings beyond what we can imagine.
Life was not meant to fit into a box. Life is God, Spirit, and His activity is broad and infinite and ever revealing more and more goodness. This is your Life. And no, it won’t look just like everyone else’s. The greatness of God has countless ideas and you get to live the best one, the one crafted just for you—today, tomorrow, and forever!
