Go back to the source

When I was a little girl I stepped across the Mississippi River. It wasn't all that difficult, for my parents had taken me to its source in Minnesota, where the mighty Mississippi begins as a tiny stream. My solution to crossing the river lay in going back to its material source, which was limited and finite. To find the spiritual solution to human problems one must also go back to the source. But in this case, the source is God, who is unlimited and infinite.

Hereditary shadows, for example, are dispelled in the dawning recognition that God is the only parent and creator, and that man is heir solely of His qualities and perfection. As the author of one of the psalms exclaimed, "The lines are fallen unto me in pleasant places; yea, I have a goodly heritage." Ps. 16:6. In the face of arguments of inability or inadequacy, the scientific remedy is to understand and follow Mrs. Eddy's direction "You have simply to preserve a scientific, positive sense of unity with your divine source, and daily demonstrate this." Pulpit and Press, p. 4. Unity with the divine source guarantees at-one-ment with the strength of Principle, the intelligence of Mind, the integrity of Truth, and all of the other wonderful spiritual qualities of our Father-Mother God.
