“Citizens of the world, accept the “glorious liberty of the children of God,” and be free! This is your divine right.” (Science and Health, page 227)
Independence Day in the United States is a wonderful occasion to remember our rights. We can choose to eagerly celebrate something more than a national holiday. Today and every day we have the opportunity to recognize and claim our eternal freedom as children of God.
That’s a true holy-day. It’s one that honors the law of Life and Love and rejects the bondage of oppression to material limits, to fears, to anything that would make us feel like less than we are, like unwelcome aliens in a foreign land.
For you are citizens of the world and, in Truth, citizens of heaven—rightful residents in God’s harmonious kingdom. We may feel that the world itself doesn’t recognize or honor our rights as we would wish. And surely there is conscientious work to do to bring out a higher ideal on our earth.
But we can start by knowing who we are, which empowers us to this good work. We can begin by recognizing that we were born free—born with God’s blessing upon our heads, formed of His infinite qualities of Life, Spirit, Love, and subject to a higher law, a holy law that governs us with kindness, understanding, and grace.
Let’s rejoice that we are free. Let’s accept this in our hearts and let this healing reality resonate in our lives today and every day!
