"Truth's eternal day"

The human mind, so called, with its beliefs in a yesterday and a to-morrow, is prone to forget that one lives only in the present. As a result, it burdens to-day with the evils of a so-called past, or dulls its outlook by expecting trouble in the future. It punishes itself by accumulating evil rather than good, or by accepting evil as well as good as a permanent possession. Being ignorant of itself, it does not see the fallacy of its reasoning until enlightened through the study of Christian Science. Then it learns that, as Mrs. Eddy says in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 584), "Mind measures time according to the good that is unfolded. This unfolding is God's day."

If God's day, then, is the unfolding of good, can this day ever reveal any element of evil? Nay; the attributes of God are goodness, love, patience, understanding, intelligence, life, truth, peace, joy, purity, spirituality! These constitute the light of day as revealed in Christian Science. Says the prophet Isaiah: "Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old. Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it?" Now this "new thing" is God's perfect creation, known to us. Now are we conscious of God's day, the continual unfolding of good. When we learn this, we are not likely to burden ourselves with the problems of yesterday.

It is curious how history repeats itself
