Use it selflessly
Most retired people want to live full and useful lives. They want their days to be at least as satisfying as when they were working steadily. It is good that so many feel this way, because leisure based on useful activity is a natural human expression of divine Life, or God.
Christian Science teaches that everyone can live a productive, meaningful life. One only needs to hold to and demonstrate the truth that man is in reality the full and complete reflection of God, Life, now and always. Mrs. Eddy writes, "Hold thought steadfastly to the enduring, the good, and the true, and you will bring these into your experience proportionably to their occupancy of your thoughts." Science and Health, p. 261;
God, Life, is infinite active good. This means that active good is everywhere and is reflected by each of God's ideas. Divine Life is the animating force of all creation, of all that really exists. Life includes strength, freshness, variety. Life, or Soul, expresses infinite individuality in each of its ideas. Identity is distinct. You are you and I am I. No two of us are alike, and each has his own place to fill now and forever. Individual man as God's image and likeness is entirely true to Life—a genuine expression of his original.
