‘Just love’

What can you do when a loved one seems to turn away from you? How and where can you find peace and healing?

I’ve gotten insight about this from the book Retrospection and Introspection by Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer of Christian Science. She writes, “The human history needs to be revised, and the material record expunged” (p. 22).

It isn’t enough just to forgive someone else, or ourselves, for an inharmonious incident without understanding the spiritual basis for doing so. The entire human record of anger, umbrage, and bad feelings is not part of spiritual reality. Expunging involves not just wiping this record out of consciousness, but demonstrating God’s eternal, unchanging law of love and harmony. This is possible because, as Christian Science teaches, we are each the idea of the one Mind, the child of the one God, made in His perfect likeness. We can never truly be out of harmony with each other.
