"Earth's hieroglyphics of Love"

He who confounded the wise men in the temple at Jerusalem was more clearly understood by the "poor in spirit" who followed him to the Galilean hillside and heard him say, "Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: and yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these." Not far afield but at one's very threshold is illustrated for each the tender care of the all-knowing God. On page 331 of "Miscellaneous Writings" Mrs. Eddy has written, "As mortals awake from their dream of material sensation, this adorable, all-inclusive God, and all earth's hieroglyphics of Love, are understood; and infinite Mind is seen kindling the stars, rolling the worlds, reflecting all space and Life,—but not life in matter." Through contemplation in the light of Christian Science, thought is finding wisdom to decipher these "hieroglyphics of Love" and imbibe the precious secrets—secrets only to material sense, which cannot know the things of God. One of the characteristics of the Christ-idea is love of the good and beautiful, and this characteristic shines through the seeming as the light shines through the mist with a rainbow of promise. Its revelations are ever welcome to the world weary.

Who has not lifted his eyes to the hills and received helpful inspiration from the exalted view? Then, scanning the pathway, who has not gratefully rejoiced in the bright blossoms abeam from grass-grown ledges? Even the gravel path has color and charm all its own, as its glinting particles give back the glory of the overbrooding sky. Unfolding the real, the spiritual idea, Christian Science is enabling us to look away from corporeality to Principle. This activity contributes to the spiritualization of thought. "Be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind." With God's work finished, His whole universe, spiritual, harmonious, and supremely beautiful, is even now apprehending Spirit, with all the individual ability to discern spiritual good.
