The illumination of Mary’s spiritual sense put to silence material law and its order of generation, and brought forth her child by the revelation of Truth, demonstrating God as the Father of men. The Holy Ghost, or divine Spirit, overshadowed the pure sense of the Virgin-mother with the full recognition that being is Spirit. —Mary Baker Eddy, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures
One of the dangers of social media comes by using it to define and bolster negative, self-imposed concepts of ourselves and also using an audience to support these opinions we entertain.
Rather, rely on God, divine Mind — on a daily basis — to let Mind’s intelligence define you with Her love, understanding, and wisdom so that She can lead you toward positive and true understanding of Her good design — the truth about who you are, the niche you fill, and where you need to go, and how to have a fulfilling life.
When we let go of our outlines (what we expect to happen or feel entitled to have), and start by understanding that God is Love itself (and She loves us!) and is infinite good — as is Her loving intelligence, supply, and guidance.
Love’s design for you is perfect and is glimpsed in Psalms 8:
When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained; What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him? For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour. Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet:
The divine Mind maintains all identities, from a blade of grass to a star, as distinct and eternal. —Mary Baker Eddy, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures
Less is more.
God is ONE — the infinite and ONLY.
As God’s beloved child, you are His perfect design.
To the quiet ones:
You’re the observers in this life, there is no requirement for it to be explained with words, you just understand. As if you’re sitting on an old brick wall, watching others go through the motions of this life. All of them experiencing their own individual realities, depending on their personal perception. You might be hushed, and some others will not be able to comprehend as to why. Perhaps deeming you detached, vacant and “in the clouds.” Little do they know there is thunder inside of you, a universe of depth, all locked up by a door, and few who own a key. Some, however, will be able to see this inner world within you, like staring through glass, and those are the souls worth seeking.
If you ever feel disheartened in a rowdy place, surrounded by people, and you find yourself wordless, remember you are the most silent of strengths. We need more meaningful thoughts in this world than waggling, impulsive tongues. I admire this about you, and you should feel confident in your quiet power, it’s a gift.
Having no other gods, turning to no other but the one perfect Mind to guide him, man is the likeness of God, pure and eternal, having that Mind which was also in Christ. —Mary Baker Eddy, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures
