Willing to yield

The consciousness of a spiritually inspired individual is both unmovable and pliable. It is, as Jesus would put it, grounded on the rock. This rock is the everlasting supremacy of God, divine Truth. When we hear of supposed threats suggesting a power other than God, we respond with Paul, “None of these things move me” (Acts 20:24). We simply are not moved off what we know is true.

So, while not moved by fear, injustice, or maliciousness, an inspired individual is also utterly pliable to the spiritual understanding he or she obtains about God. Only a feather-light touch is necessary to reposition, to correct, the elastic consciousness of one who loves God wholeheartedly. “The human mind, imbued with this spiritual understanding, becomes more elastic, is capable of greater endurance, escapes somewhat from itself, and requires less repose,” explains Mary Baker Eddy in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures (p. 128).

Watch how right it feels to yield, by your own consent, to what God is telling you about yourself.
