Things, thoughts, and treetops
Recently, I was talking to a friend about thinking metaphysically by changing “things into thoughts.” Mary Baker Eddy explains that “divine Science, rising above physical theories, excludes matter, resolves things into thoughts, and replaces the objects of material sense with spiritual ideas” (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 123).
My friend brought up an example of a tree. She said that a tree could represent spiritual qualities such as strength, beauty, continuity, life, and shelter. And if you asked someone else what they thought, you might get a list of completely different qualities.
