Riding on air
First appeared as a web original on May 16, 2012
Have you ever felt that you were riding on air—high in a vast, silent sky, leaning “on the sustaining infinite”? I felt that a few months ago when I was invited to take a lesson with a glider pilot. Yes, in the air!
Let me explain. That phrase comes from the opening lines of the Preface to Mary Baker Eddy’s book Science and Health, which reads, “To those leaning on the sustaining infinite, to-day is big with blessings” (p. vii). It was during my gliding lesson that I gained a really helpful understanding of that passage.
