"The good that is unfolded"

TO all who are sincerely seeking spiritual truth, the unfoldment of good is a continuous and orderly process. Mortals are wont to cling to a belief in time and to think of periods and seasons as determining factors in bringing about a realization of the desired good. Spiritually enlightened, the Christian Scientist knows that God's man does not have to wait for good to take place, or to be accomplished, since he lives in the eternal now of ever-present Love.

In the Glossary in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," on page 595, Mrs. Eddy has given an illuminating and healing definition of "time," which reads in part, "Mortal measurements; limits, in which are summed up all human acts, thoughts, beliefs, opinions, knowledge." According to this definition, is time really a needed factor in the accomplishment of good? How clear was John's spiritual vision when he was able to record the angelic statement that "there should be time no longer"!
