“We should become more familiar with good than with evil, and guard against false beliefs as watchfully as we bar our doors against the approach of thieves and murderers.” (Science and Health, page 234)
Our consciousness is precious. It is where our treasures are contained and where all our good experiences begin.
It truly behooves us to protect our thinking and to plant and nurture seeds of goodness there. We can be alert and recognize that when we are ruminating on trouble, thinking critically about others or ourselves, dwelling in fear or in anger, we have made our home, our dwelling place, something unkind and uncomfortable. This isn’t a place where we can flourish or find peace.
Let’s realize that the dark images of evil and danger, of disease and demise, may knock at our door, but we don’t have to let them in. While being careful and thoughtful about things can be good, to spend our time with the criminal beliefs that can rough up our house, our serenity and poise and clarity, is not wisdom. We are better occupied by actively, intentionally, becoming more acquainted with good, with that which is powerful, healing, and true.
This is being watchful with God, with Love, with intelligence. It is not living in paranoia, but instead being ready to invite in beauty, joy, light, and vibrant life!
