Upspringing Life

Christ Jesus exhibited Life, unbroken and self-expressed. What a limitless concept he gave us! How it wipes away the cobwebs of time's beginnings and endings! How it challenges thinkers to look beyond the periphery of matter for the answers to the why of existence!

Thoughtful people in many areas of learning are concerned with life and its conservation. Ecologists are characterized by their respect for and love of life. To them, it is something to protect and preserve. Many feel that a law of life is governing in nature and that all creation unfolds in harmony with the rhythm of this law. They see living things held in a life relationship with each other. Harm for one is harm for all. A blessing for one is a blessing for all.

The student of Christian Science also reveres life. He learns through this Science a basic and fundamental fact: that Life is God and God is potently ever present and imperishable. Inherent in this ever-present Life is its upsurging power to express itself in intelligent harmony, for Science teaches not many private lives trying to manifest a common concord, but one Life, God, expressing itself as the Life of all. In this relationship there can be no conflict, no wastage, no pollutants.
