“How much more should we seek to apprehend the spiritual ideas of God, than to dwell on the objects of sense! To discern the rhythm of Spirit and to be holy, thought must be purely spiritual.” (Science and Health, page 510)
If we want to get into the pure and perfect rhythm of Life, we can’t be fixated on the confused noise of material sense. Spirit’s harmonious being and activity can’t be discerned, appreciated, and lived when we are getting so caught up in the objects of sense, the various details of circumstances, things, persons, bodies.
That beautiful spiritual rhythm is always with us, carrying us forth with balance, harmony, and progress. It naturally regulates experience and body. But if we close our spiritual eyes to this truth of being and junk up our thinking with preoccupation over material things, we can’t hear that perfect beat, the one that is in sync with our truest inner harmony, the natural dance of our lives.
So, shut off that mortal mind and its needy worry. Just turn that cacophony off and open your eager hearts and minds to the soothing, uncomplicated, rhythm of Spirit—your own truest Life that is pleasing, right, and reveals your natural poise and grace and peace.
