“Spirit, God, gathers unformed thoughts into their proper channels, and unfolds these thoughts, even as He opens the petals of a holy purpose in order that the purpose may appear.” (Science and Health, page 506)
Gathering, unfolding, opening. These actions are loving, progressive, purposeful. They describe a conscious collecting, organizing, and revealing. They contribute harmoniously and meaningfully to a divine purpose appearing in human affairs.
Let’s remember that we don’t have to take a bunch of confused or uncertain thoughts and aspirations and make them work. We don’t need to pull our ideas up out of their seeds and make them into a flower. God, Spirit does all this. Inspiration dawns from God, in a timely way. The means and methods become clear and natural. Each right step of progress and fulfillment blooms forth, not by human will, but by willingness.
Our plans and projections can get us hung up. We can certainly nurture our hopes and dreams, but we can release the need to be in charge of them, to get out ahead of God Who knows what is right, how to do it, and when. We can trust that seed that God gave us, let go of the ego that feels responsible and/or incapable, and allow God’s perfect arrangement of things to blossom timely and beautifully.
