“Hello! Hello! I can’t hear you!” For a moment I couldn’t understand why my phone call kept dropping while we traveled to the capital. It didn’t take long to realize why. We were crossing an area full of hills and every time our vehicle climbed, communication was perfect; when the route descended abruptly, the signal was lost. Finally we reached flat terrain, similar to most in my country, Uruguay, and from then on communications smoothed out and voices became clearer.
Often, it seems as if relationships between people experience similar moments, in which communication can get lost or is difficult to achieve. It’s not always easy to connect with someone else, but I have been learning that the best way to communicate with others is to understand, first, communication with our Father, God. How good to know that our “line” to God never drops, and communication with God isn’t harder in some places or at some times. It is a constant that we can rely on. And God’s guidance to us informs our relationships and interactions.
The Discoverer of Christian Science, Mary Baker Eddy, wrote in her principal work, “The intercommunication is always from God to His idea, man” (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 284). Our communication with God is something very intimate, very special; it is a communion between Love and its manifestation; in other words, between God and His children, all of us.
