Removing the Limits of Time
Belief in time restricts in many ways. Many people think they have too much time. Others believe "time is running out," and they feel pressure and panic as deadlines approach. In both cases the problems can be solved through the realization that as sons and daughters of God we do not live in a mortal time-world but in the ever-present realm of God, Spirit. We perpetually express the qualities of our Father-Mother God, who is Life.
The saying, "Time is a great healer," would deceive the sick and sorrowing into passive waiting for relief, but this is not necessary. Christ Jesus said, "I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; even the Spirit of truth." John 14:16, 17; This "Spirit of truth" is fully revealed in Christian Science, and when understood and applied, it comforts by demonstrating to each individual that there is no cause for pain or grief and no lost opportunity to regret. Being actively patient, expecting God's goodness to be revealed to us, we are receptive to the messages of the Christ and come to appreciate the fact that Life is timeless, deathless, ever-present good, forever joyfully expressed by man.
Since time has nothing to do with healing, we need to recognize that it has no power to increase or detract from health, which is a spiritual and eternal quality of Life, God, and of His children. When some physical difficulty has troubled us for a length of time, it may seem to be immovable. However, we need not be impressed, whether by sudden sickness or by lingering illness. Each is unreal because God, good, the only cause, does not know either. Length of time does not affect the action of Truth, because time is material and unreal, while the action of Truth is spiritual and real. Mrs. Eddy states, "Working out the rules of Science in practice, the author has restored health in cases of both acute and chronic disease in their severest forms." Science and Health, p. 162;
