ENERGY BREAKTHROUGHS

I REMEMBER when I was in high school, having a conversation with my dad about our family finances. He had a paycheck in front of him, and to this day I can recall, in essence, what he said: "This check is not the source of our family's income. Our supply comes from the ideas behind the projects I work on. Dollars are finite, but ideas are infinite. They come directly from God and will always be there to meet our needs."

I've found Dad's counsel helpful as I consider the world's seemingly insatiable demand for new sources and forms of energy today. The very same principle applies. What he said also reminds me of something I've pondered many times from Science and Health: "Metaphysics resolves things into thoughts, and exchanges the objects of sense for the ideas of Soul" (p. 269 ). I'm certain that our energy security will be assured to the degree that we do just that—give up a limited view of our apparently available resources (things) for a greater understanding of the unlimited intelligence and ingenuity (thoughts) we all possess as reflections of God, divine Mind.
