“We sustain Truth, not by accepting, but by rejecting a lie.” (Science and Health, page 357)
We can be alert to what we are agreeing with. When Truth sings in our heart, when we feel that resonating freedom and peace that is God’s goodness announcing itself, we can accept it willingly and gratefully.
And then we can sustain that Truth and its active power in our lives by staying awake. We can conscientiously reject the opposition to Truth, the lies that may try to drown out our song and darken our experience. We have the right to deny those troubling, diminishing, negative thoughts a presence in our minds. We can instead continue to honor the Truth that is solid and saving.
Those lies attempt to counter the real spiritual facts. So, when we hear those arguments for our worthlessness, failings, sufferings, and those in the world, we can turn those right around and find the Truth that is hopeful, healing, and right for us. The untruth about us can be rejected for what it is—a lie—but it can also help guide us to that specific spiritual fact that is the very balm we need in that moment. Guilt is canceled by innocence. Fear is annulled by Love. Vulnerability is overturned by wholeness, integrity, strength.
Let’s stop believing lies and stay faithful to the Truth, God’s own eternal and present and sustained reality of you and of all.
