Let Love write our life script

One afternoon at work, I went into the break room where some co-workers were deeply involved in conversation. They were discussing what sounded like serious problems with a friend or possibly a family member. The drama was such that I began to be drawn into the story, until suddenly one of them made a comment about not being able to wait to see what happened in the next episode with a specific character. They were discussing a TV soap opera! Immediately the sorrow and concern disappeared as the fictional nature of what I had unwittingly reacted to became apparent.

We can learn not to react to the material,
unreal scene that appears before us as a sinful person or distressing circumstance. Instead we can consciously identify with and bear witness to the truth that is present. 

What a lesson that has been for me! Christian Science teaches that God is Mind and man is the idea of God, His image and likeness, as we read in Genesis (see 1:26, 27). This infinite Mind is forever expressing itself as intelligence, perfection, immortality, completeness—the one infinite Christ-idea that Jesus fully embodied and that is, in reality, individualized as you and me. In this infinite expression, or Christ consciousness, there could be no evil, no dishonesty, no discord, no disease—only the good that is God and that God is being.
