Freedom and Flexibility

Lots of people feel they live in a world that is just too inflexible. They believe, typically, that many societies and institutions are unadaptable to needed change. Some businessmen, too, claim their affairs are overregulated by governments. In a phrase, they're convinced there's not enough room to maneuver.

We can, through spiritual reasoning, turn mentally to God's realm. Here everything is free moving and free flowing because it is the creation of Life, God, and is perpetually activated by Life. Spiritual reality is not rigid, not hard and brittle. Grasping this, we free ourselves from tightness in daily living and become pliantly responsive to divine government.

"Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." John 8:32; These words of Christ Jesus are timely. They are as practical now, when understood, as they have been across the two millennia since they were first spoken. Christian Science gives us the consciousness of Truth, God, that strips away the confining claims of time and mortality, the roots of unfreedom. All limitation can be negated by spiritual consciousness because it never was legitimate. What could be more releasing than a growing sense that man is the very representative or expression of divine Truth, and not a mortal tangled in the individuality-denying beliefs and regulations of material sense?
