Appreciating complexity

One doesn't have to look at complexity through rose-colored glasses to realize it is essentially good. It implies the interrelatedness of things. Without complexity everything would be unrelated; all our actions and decisions could be overly simplified; and in the moral realm, we might not foster our healing relationships with each other, allowing the sin of indifference to prevail.

But anyone who has ever sighed, "We live in such a complex world" knows that we must appreciate complexity as a spiritual factor in order for it to have a positive influence in our lives.

The spiritual universe—the real expression of all that God is—is whole. It includes all. It cannot be broken up into parts. Mrs. Eddy writes in the textbook of Christian Science, "The allness of Deity is His oneness." Science and Health, p. 267; As God is All and One, so His expression reflects His allness and oneness.
