Taming the Weather

In her book No and Yes Mrs. Eddy writes, "Divinely defined, Science is the atmosphere of God";  No and Yes, p. 9; and just before this brief but profound statement she comments regarding Christian Science. "It excludes all error and includes all Truth."

It is the privilege of the alert student of Christian Science to realize humbly but clearly that divine Mind can and does control undesirable extremes of weather. Moreover, since an atmospheric extreme represents a cumulative disturbance in human or mortal mind thinking, the Scientist can realize protection from this disturbance both for himself and his community.

"The atmosphere of God," Mind, reveals to us the remedy for all forms of disturbed thought. The conscious awareness of this serene and perfect atmosphere is effective in all directions. The writer recalls a disturbed weather condition in a metropolitan area in the Midwest of the United States where many tornadoes were being reported. The troubled, darkened sky was lit only by repeated lightning flashes. He reflected that evil has only the power to destroy itself and by its very nature is excluded from the reality of God's perfect creation.
