Where Do You Live?

Our everyday reply to this question might include a number, a street, a suburb. But there is a spiritual, metaphysical reply, and it has healing and freeing results, and it helps us build a happier sense of family.

Where we live is determined by God. It is the consequence of His infinitude. In the sense that Deity is without beginning and end, there is nowhere for man to be but in Spirit. Material thought, however, would represent man as finite, confined to a corporeal personality, which in turn is contained by buildings and vehicles and ultimately by the physical universe itself; and this universe— no matter how vast, according to the astronomer's judgment—is essentially finite, according to spiritually scientific definition.

As we grow in the understanding that man is infinite Spirit's idea and that man lives in Spirit because there is nowhere else for him to be, we live more concordantly, whether we're married or single, whether we identify ourselves primarily as parent or child. Moreover, we gain more and more mastery of the mesmeric belief that man is encased in a corporeal body subject to disease and suffering and, sooner or later, dissolution.
