“We cannot fill vessels already full. They must first be emptied. Let us disrobe error. Then, when the winds of God blow, we shall not hug our tatters close about us.” (Science and Health, page 201)
It’s hard to let go. At times we feel that what we are familiar with is most comfortable. It seems like our memories, our regrets, our failures, and fears make up our very being. How can we let go of ourselves?
We certainly can’t be free of who we are. But discovering our genuine being can set us free. If we are to gain a new perspective and live with more energy and enthusiasm, health and peace, it’s necessary to release those tattered clothes. We must give up those old and unsuitable beliefs about ourselves and about life in general.
God is Life. This divine Life of ours is always new, always active, alive. We can experience the activity of God’s renewing presence as we make room for it. Be willing to clear out that mental vessel of clutter and shame and doubt and self-judgment and make room for the good news.
The Truth of our innocence and freedom can’t share space with the lies and accusations that we might be clinging to. Let those dense and dark and depressing ideas go. You deserve better. Let in the light, the refreshing goodness of God, which is ready now to fill you up with inspiration, freshness, light, and grace!
