Satiated By SOUL
Julio C. Rivas, CS
A plethora of comfort, inspiration and healing may be harvested from the following spiritual ideas. First, let us start with these stirring, poetic statements by M. B. Eddy.
“It matters not what be thy lot, so Love doth guide; for storm or shine, pure peace is thine, what’er betide.
And of these stones, or tyrants’ thrones, God able is to raise up seed – in thought and deed – to faithful His.
Aye, darkling sense, arise, go hence! Our God is good. … the earth-bound wake, God’s glorified!”
These poetic statements connect me to LOVE-SPIRIT’s wellness-enforcing might, and how its gushing brilliance and benevolence resolves the multiple problems bearing down us. LIFE is the inexhaustible source of our matter-transcending excellence, and LIFE-MIND’s brilliant mercy is spurring creative answers to complex and ostensibly intractable issues.
LIFE-HEALTH is speaking louder and more convincingly to our spiritual receptors than adversity – that is, than pain, illness, pride, anger, phobias, losses, mistakes and death. Even when we find ourselves in the midst of a “storm” of agonies, or being “stoned” by misfortune and others’ malice, it is SPIRIT-INTELLIGENCE which showing us the way to health, peace and success.
When a man’s business was going bankrupt, his family life crumbling and his health floundering, it is MIND-LOVE’s inordinate, benevolent energies and intelligent directing that rescued him and re-built his life.
We are wiser still to heed divine WISDOM-TRUTH when things are going well. Hubris blinds us to the danger of precipitous downfalls and losses. Only from MIND can we derive indestructible, ever-expanding health, love, security and fulfillment.
TRUTH-WISDOM helps us realize that each one is a divine, dynamic, matter-free expression of SOUL. We are each the outstanding, incorporeal, immortal manifestation of SPIRIT.
The Christ-excellence which Jesus Christ lived and communicated is our inexhaustible, celestial wealth. Our ongoing discovery of this illimitable, intrinsic, spiritual resource instigates wondrous health, benefits, achievements and generosity.
