"The rhythm of Spirit"

Rhythm is associated with grace, balance, and naturalness. Who does not long to possess these qualities in larger measure? To possess them means to experience greater freedom and joy in daily living. Rhythm "applies to measured and balanced movement, wherever found."

The attainment of a true sense of rhythm is a spiritually mental process. It is a natural expression of unity with God, the divine Principle of all real being. Our beloved Leader, Mary Baker Eddy, has said (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 510), "To discern the rhythm of Spirit and to be holy, thought must be purely spiritual."

As purified and uplifted human consciousness rises above the dream of mortal existence to behold the true universe of God's creating, wholly spiritual, perfect, and good, it discerns the rhythm of Spirit, the harmonious movement of God's ideas in unity with their creator. In the inseverable unity which exists between the Father and His beloved children, and the perfect concord in which Love's ideas dwell with one another, all are moving in rhythmic oneness with their divine source, expressing the almightiness of good and the infinite wisdom of all-governing divine Love. Discerning these truths, we must be willing to yield to the infallible guidance of infinite wisdom and to follow obediently Love's directing. As we do so, we shall find that His ways are higher than our ways, and that into our experience flow blessings far richer and more beautiful than any we can conceive of in our most cherished human hopes and plans.
