No unhappy past

Have you ever found yourself dwelling on some past experience with regret and remorse, ruminating over a loss, a failing, or a discordant incident—cogitating on how you might have done things differently? This is profitless, poverty producing thinking, which would rob us of our God-given joy and keep us from accepting ever-present good.

By spiritualizing consciousness—rejecting thoughts that would rekindle discordant and unpleasant memories, and filling our minds with divine, eternal truths—we can expunge from our thinking what may appear as indelible imprints of an unhappy past. There is no sin, sorrow, or disappointment, however painful and deeply rooted it may seem to be, that God, divine Love, cannot remove, if we humbly seek His guidance.

The same Christ-power that Jesus embodied and demonstrated heals, regenerates, and brings renewal to impaired and discouraged lives today. Christian Science shows how we may gain an understanding of this healing power and its divine Principle and demonstrate them in our daily life.
