“The periods of spiritual ascension are the days and seasons of Mind’s creation, in which beauty, sublimity, purity, and holiness — yea, the divine nature — appear in man and the universe never to disappear.” (Science and Health, p. 509)
What a great joy and relief it is to recognize life as spiritual progression. We may get caught up in phases of experience, where time and age seem to have control, inviting us into limitation. We may feel that the world itself is also going through transitions that are unfavorable and even destructive.
But there is another and truer story worth awakening to. It is the awareness of spiritual ascension—the seasons of God’s creating where change is evolution, growth, progress, not a tapering off, destruction, and demise. As we are receptive to this spiritual narrative, one that reveals more of God’s goodness, we begin to see this reality in our daily lives.
For the periods of eternity are not confined to days and years, to matter and its unkindness. These stages start within the boundless thought of God, and Love unfolds to us these ideas, this inspiration, the qualities of God’s divine nature, in perceivable ways. We behold healing, vitality, beauty, peace within, and feel a more genuine love for mankind.
This is ascension. It leads upward to a higher idea, one that continues to give us new views and grander possibilities each moment—today, tomorrow, forever.
