At dawn dark clouds sometimes gather at the eastern horizon. But gently and effortlessly the rising sun, with its vivid radiance, colors these clouds with indescribable hues of beauty. There is no struggle, no opposition, no accusation, no rivalry, but the sun's rays reach out, blessing the earth and robing it in glowing splendor. Viewing such a scene, one catches a glimpse of God's loving nature. The rhythm of Spirit is apparent. We feel the beauty of Soul and understand somewhat the kindliness and purity of Love.

Man, created by God, lives to bless and be blessed. This is a law of love, God's divine nature. All around us we may see the effects of this law in acts of love and kindness, in exquisite blossoms, beautiful sunsets, singing birds, trees laden with fruit. The life of Jesus showed us the Father and His divine nature. Mary Baker Eddy labored many years to give us her revelation and discovery, Christian Science, and to establish on earth this holy Cause. These manifestations of "God with us" speak of His law of blessedness, love, order, rhythm, harmony. God never told His creation that it was sick or in trouble. These suggestions spring from the counterfeit, or mortal, mind. Any suggestion of the imperfection of God's man and the universe is but a perishable sense of the imperishable.
