The law that moves us forward

Adapted from an article published in The Christian Science Monitor, June 23, 2016.

I’ve been praying a good deal lately about post-traumatic stress disorder. The perspective I have gained from my study of Christ Jesus’ teachings and Mary Baker Eddy’s writings has helped me to see even beyond positive thinking that would turn lemons into lemonade. Instead I’ve learned something about the natural spiritual law that operates on behalf of everyone impartially and that we can learn to yield to.

It starts with the idea that man and woman are created in the “image” of God, to be “very good”—like God (see Genesis 1:26, 27, 31). This means that we inherently reflect the good that comes from God; it is the law of reflection that man is the harmonious expression of God. As we begin to understand this, we experience healing and gain the confidence and strength to meet adversity.
