“Gladness to leave the false landmarks and joy to see them disappear, — this disposition helps to precipitate the ultimate harmony.” (Science and Health, page 323)
Sure, we all want to progress. We want to get past yesterday’s woes or limits or ignorance, and move forward in life, with freedom and energy and expectation. This is not only a desire. It is truly our divine right.
But we have to leave the false landmarks, the mistaken beliefs, worries, past experiences behind. We have to stop contemplating what yesterday may have been about or who we might have been in it. We have to release hold of disappointments and hurts and even that sense of “the good old days,” and be willing to let God turn a fresh page on our life and write something brand new and wonderful upon it.
Rest in this moment with expectation and receptivity. Refuse mortal mind’s call to ruminate, despair, doubt, linger in a limited sense of self and of life. Life is God. It has no limits. Truth is God. It does not abide its ideas remaining in the dark to the brightness of this new day and of our magnificent, blessed place in it.
If we want to feel the ultimate harmony, we can’t keep on bringing the heavy, old, ugly beliefs into this precious moment, or let nostalgia keep us looking back with yearning for something we feel we lost. Stay in this moment, poised for God’s symphony to begin, for the right notes to blend and to reveal the true and new song of your harmonious, inspiring Life!
