Love's transparency and the diamond ring

Over the years I have found many misplaced items, having learned that there is only one divine Mind, God, who is omnipotent, omniscient, and omnipresent. One of the earliest lessons I learned, being raised as a Christian Scientist, is, “To those leaning on the sustaining infinite, to-day is big with blessings” (Mary Baker Eddy, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. vii). And nothing can really be lost to the one, omniscient Mind. I recently had a fresh glimpse of the fact that understanding this is a “two-way street.” In other words, if we “stand porter at the door of thought” (Science and Health, p. 392), we are always poised as a transparency for God’s wisdom, and we bring blessings to others as well as to ourselves.

One day I found a beautiful platinum ring studded with diamonds on the sidewalk a block or so from my apartment building in New York City. It had a Tiffany trademark, and I immediately thought of the owner who surely missed it, but felt quite strongly that, at least for a time, I was entrusted as its steward.
