God's allness dispels misery

A woman driver passed a large billboard that read, "You are in allergy country" and suggested a medicine for relief.

She knew that arming herself against the suggestion of being allergic to certain substances meant knowing the nothingness of matter as a necessary corollary of the allness of God. It meant seeing what is true of God and His spiritual idea, man. So she restated the first words of the advertisement: "You are in God's country."
