Ways we are taught of God

Christ Jesus once said, "It is written in the prophets, And they shall be all taught of God." John 6:45. If we're feeling that education stops after a certain number of years or that our educational prospects are limited by circumstances, it's wonderful to discover that there is a never-ending source of education for us. This source is God's, divine Mind's, own impartation of His allness to His idea, man.

The more we identify ourselves, not as a limited, restricted mortal, but as spiritual man, the very idea of the infinite Mind that is God, the more we realize the unrestricted outpouring of spiritual good that God is forever giving man. There's a statement in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mrs. Eddy that can encourage everyone to give up the unnecessary belief of limitation. It reads: "God expresses in man the infinite idea forever developing itself, broadening and rising higher and higher from a boundless basis. Mind manifests all that exists in the infinitude of Truth." Science and Health, p. 258.

God's gift to us of ever-unfolding intelligence and progress is not at the mercy of human circumstances. Rather, God is always communicating with His idea, man, our true selfhood, and this communication of all good comes to us as the result of our acceptance of what we truly are—Mind's manifestation of itself. Wisdom, clarity, discernment, artistry, are the natural outcome of our acceptance and demonstration of the all-knowing and all-seeing divine Mind as our Mind.
