By midafternoon on a Friday at the end of a long week at work, I was feeling dizzy and unwell. Despite this, I went ahead and got on a previously scheduled conference call with Christian Scientists from around the world. I feel privileged to work closely with this group. The conference call began with readings from the Bible, which were shared in a language I don’t speak or understand. Nevertheless, I was grateful to hear these readings, so I closed my eyes and listened to what was being read.
As I listened, these words came specifically to my thought: “You are rooted in Love.” I took this to mean that my roots, or the foundation of my identity, were in God, divine Love, and were therefore spiritual. This also meant that the foundation of my identity, being spiritual, was not and never could be in a mortal, material selfhood that could become tired or dizzy.
