Irreversible being

From the May 1996 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Everyone longs for enduring good, for well-being and sufficiency that are incapable of reversal. And actually, everyone can have such good—forever! But in order to realize this eternally harmonious state in present experience, we must gain something—not something outside ourselves, but a perception, within consciousness, of the truth of being. For our sense of being is directly related to the nature of our experience.

The mortal, material concept of existence is based on change, subject to discord and dissolution, capable of being reversed at any moment. On the other hand, the truth of creation as stated in Genesis is that God created all and created it "very good." And this state of being is found to be irreversible. Why? Because God is the divine Principle, which forever abides with and lovingly governs the entire universe, including every individual idea (your real identity and mine), in perfect harmony.

Man manifests the irreversible harmony that is continuously produced and controlled by this Principle. And the abiding love of God allows for no error, no deviation from Principle, no unsatisfied longings, and no lack of fulfillment. In our true and only being we are the perfect expression of God and forever conscious of this fact.
