During a church service one Sunday, I was praying deeply to realize the unity we have as children of one God, one Mind. This unity is something so natural and beautiful, but not always visible because so often we are challenged by divisions, factions, and disagreements within human organizations.
As I prayed, I considered divine Mind’s allness, infinitude, all-inclusiveness. I saw that man expresses only the purpose and will of the Father, and that we are all the outcome of His holy purpose and plan. I reasoned that fulfilling our Father’s plan for us is not so much a choice as it is the nature of our being as God’s children, and in accordance with the words of our beloved Master, “The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise” (John 5:19). I was beginning to see the impossibility, in divine Science, of many minds and, therefore, many opinions, many agendas, and many differences.
Just as light emanates from the sun, harmony emanates from the divine Mind, our common source, and we reflect this Mind. Therefore, there can be no contention or dissension, for we are likeminded—of one accord, of one mind—and having the same love, are able to live peacefully with one another (see Philippians 2:2).
