“Stand porter at the door of thought.” (Science and Health, p. 392)
This is wise counsel. It is an alert to keep a watch on our consciousness.
A porter watches at the gate and allows in only that which is welcome, safe, and right for entry. We can be aware of the suggestions that want to get our attention and focus, and discern if they are worthy to come in. We can assess whether a thought or word is going to disturb us, unsettle us, and take us out of our natural state of calm and wisdom.
A porter is also defined as one who waits at the door to receive messages. So, as a good porter, we can send away unwanted thoughts—ones that bring fear and self-doubt, anger and blame and guilt—and make room to receive the dispatches that are right and from a higher and more honest and constructive Source.
We have been given the ability to distinguish between what is helpful to us and what is destructive. We can take a strong stand against those accusations and beliefs that are not from God, good, and shut the door on them. We can then await and welcome in those healing and wise messages from God that bring peace, progress, and happiness.
