LOVE HEALS LONELINESS

When we seem to experience any phase of lack, it is an indication that we need to understand God better. If we feel the lack of satisfying associations, we need more tangibly to realize the presence of God as Love. Mary Baker Eddy writes in her Message to The Mother Church for 1901 (p. 3), "The loyal Christian Scientists absolutely adopt Webster's definition of God, 'A Supreme Being," and the Standard dictionary's definition of God, 'The one Supreme Being, self-existent and eternal.' " And farther on she adds: "Then, to define Love in divine Science we use this phrase for God —divine Principle. By this we mean Mind, a permanent, fundamental, intelligent, divine Being, called in Scripture, Spirit, Love."

The Mind that is manifested in man and the universe is aware of perfection and abundant good. Every right idea is present in this Mind, and the Principle that embraces and governs all with just and loving law is good that contains no evil. The Scriptures affirm that "God saw every thing that he had made, and behold, it was very good" (Gen. 1:31). Mind, which is infinite good, the most tender Love and just Principle, could be conscious of no such desolate belief as loneliness.
