Wilderness. Loneliness; doubt; darkness. Spontaneity of thought and idea; the vestibule in which a material sense of things disappears, and spiritual sense unfolds the great facts of existence.
—Mary Baker Eddy, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 597
Come on in.
If the way seems as cold and dark as winter,
let the spark of holy curiosity light the way for you.
The stark ache of loneliness is not exempt
from the warming sunlight of Truth
that nourishes hearts and hidden hopes.
Be still. Be ready.
Let your roots grow deep into the soil of Soul.
You are standing on holy ground,
bathed in the spontaneity of beauty and light.
Love’s sweet persuasions sway away the fear
and doubt retreats under the blaze of Spirit.
The towering forest inspires you to look higher
to the celestial sky, reflecting the omnipresence of Love,
affirming you are home—here and everywhere.
—Kim Crooks Korinek
