Divine Mind's Nearness

Paul caught a clear view of the nearness of God, divine Mind, when he stated, "In him we live, and move, and have our being." Our great need is for the understanding of spiritual existence; and our happiness and usefulness depend upon our recognition and demonstration of the nearness and availability of God, divine Mind. Jesus reached that sublime height whence he saw that man reflects at all times the good which belongs to the Father. He stated this in the parable of the prodigal: "Son, thou art ever with me, and all that I have is thine." Jesus is our Exemplar, the one who shows us the way; and he declared with authority that God, Mind, is with us everywhere, and that His perpetual bliss is available for us here and now. Our Master brought this out in a very plain and practical manner, destroying the false beliefs of pain, illness, poverty, and even death itself.

Since God is the one infinite Mind, our existence must of necssity be within Him. It is therefore of a spiritual nature, wholly like Him, since He can contain nothing adverse to, or unlike, Himself. We are, therefore, ever held in the loving embrace of the love inherent in God's divine nature. An idea can never be separated from the Mind conceiving it; it can never accomplish anything independently of the originating source. Mind and idea are always at-one; they never exist apart, for idea is the necessary effect of Mind.
