Cutting-edge discovery

A recent New York Times headline referred to an advanced heat map recorded by the Planck satellite: “Universe as an Infant: Fatter than Expected and Kind of Lumpy” (March 21, 2013). Astronomers also reported that the universe was “older” than previously reported and “slightly lopsided.” Referring to the making of the map, an awesome technological feat, a Princeton cosmologist described the news it delivered as “beautiful.”

What an opportunity to appreciate the beauty of the expanded “telescope” from which Mary Baker Eddy encourages us to look through—the lens of Spirit. Because here she leads us to the real breaking news: the universe is spiritual.

When we contemplate the universe from this viewpoint, our vision widens, sharpens, and ultimately transforms. We no longer evaluate everything from a point of limitation, comparison, definition, and constant redefinition—but rather acknowledge the glory of divine Mind, where we look “away from matter to Mind as the cause of every effect” (Mary Baker Eddy, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 268).
