“When mortal man blends his thoughts of existence with the spiritual and works only as God works, he will no longer grope in the dark and cling to earth because he has not tasted heaven.” (Science and Health, page 263)
We all seem subject to mortal thoughts. There are times when we can’t help but believe the limits of material life and the reports from the senses to be legitimate and our fate. We can even become comfortable with our discomfort merely because it is familiar and it has come to feel like truth to us.
But this mortal viewpoint is ready for an awakening. Even our fears and doubts can’t keep God’s ideas from entering into our consciousness. These angels of Truth come to set us free from the bondage of believing we are not free! When we hear these voices within us calling us to something greater and more beautiful than finite mortal existence, we can heed them. We can listen and learn and be ready to open our eyes to the better way, a brighter day.
So, let us allow our sweet humanity to work for us. This yearning spirit within us is our right desire to get a taste of heaven. It is that within us that—while still earth-bound and uncertain and perhaps disbelieving—somehow recognizes that there is a hope for something greater. Listen to that voice and let its sincere desire blend with those higher truths, straight from God, where answers to all those questions are clear and satisfying.
We can taste heaven here and now. We can begin to allow those angel thoughts that remind us of our true perfection and divine origin, to uplift us to a higher view, a new outlook, and a heavenly walk right here on our beautiful earth.
