Be Still!

Who among us has not longed for a deep stillness, an inner peace, so established and assured that disturbing events in the world do not frighten us? We want to be able to affirm with great conviction, as the Apostle Paul did when he thought about the hardships awaiting him in Jerusalem, "None of these things move me." Acts 20:24;

How can we attain that state of consciousness in which the discords of the material world do not move us? First, it is important that we take an infinite view of ourselves and our surroundings. The harmonious, perfect universe of God's creating is the only real world, and the perfect reflection of God is the only real man. The material world, with its wrongs, sickness, and death, is the counterfeit, the lie.

The infinite view sees God's allness, which precludes error of any kind. Faithful to this view, we affirm the spiritual facts in every situation and deny the false beliefs of the counterfeit, material world.
