Thinking about what is rather than what isn’t

From the September 2019 issue of The Christian Science Journal


Have you ever been lifted to a new view of yourself by someone who loved you enough to see your potential and abilities, things you didn’t seem able to see for yourself, rather than focusing on things that seemed wrong? Would you be willing to consider how this new view can help you tap into the essence and law of your very being—a law that is here to be discovered and practiced? The law I’m speaking of is this spiritual law: “And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good” ( Genesis 1:31 ). Pure goodness, then, defines our spiritual nature and is the primary law to our being, constituting all that creation eternally is.
