Even as the form of our experience changes from day to day, year to year, the substance of the actual good of our lives never changes, because it has its source in the unalterable nature of God as divine Love and Life.

What a difference it would make to consider the possibility that the root of every problem is a theological need and that every solution is in understanding more about God. 
Article
The prayerful affirmation that there is one Mind doesn’t mean papering over human opinions or tolerating extreme ones. But it does have a way of lessening self-will, softening reactions, and deflating rhetoric so that commonalities and solutions can emerge. 
Article
Our motive can be to express loving qualities such as compassion, patience, and gentleness in our communications with others. This makes us a transparency for the Love that is God, and our thoughts will be lifted off ourselves. We will therefore not be as likely to experience awkward social interactions.

The power of one right idea

I imagine that the desperation and hopelessness I was feeling as I stood in the hallway of my home, not knowing where to turn, were not unlike the emotions the Israelites must have had in their dismal situation. But God’s help was there for me as it was for them.

Regardless of what is challenging any of us, we can know that our thoughts are governed by God’s harmony and our actions by God’s grace.

Forward, gracefully

Everyone possesses the God-given “grace to go forward, wherever He guide thee,” no matter the circumstances. Do we need to know specifically what God’s guidance will be? No. All that matters is our willingness to follow it, joyfully and gracefully.
