The “I AM” Cherishes Us
Julio C. Rivas, CS
We are the outstanding, ever-expanding oeuvre of Mind-Love. We have an immortal, holy and symbiotic relationship with Soul. Principle’s exorbitant resources are ours to manifest.
“God, the divine Principle of man and man in God’s likeness are inseparable, harmonious, and eternal” wrote 19th century theologian M. B. Eddy. Therefore, it is Soul’s superlative perfection and its divine presence in us which disproves and overcomes our sufferings, sins and problems.
Jesus’ life and works showed us that we live in, are protected by, and are empowered with the grace of God. He proved to the centurion Cornelius and to the paralyzed man at the Bethesda pool that their acceptance of their unity with Soul was transformative. They discerned something of Love’s all-encompassing, healing grace.
Every challenge we face is met effectively by Love’s healing efficacy. At this instant Love is giving us all its might, intelligence, support, and goodness. We are filled by Love’s divine substance. Our spiritual composition is brimming over with His immortal health, power, peace and joy.
Material troubles have no fact in God. They disappear from our human experience in proportion to our recognition of our oneness with Principle. Soul is all-inclusive and we are always connected to its spiritual richness and excellence.
Soul-Mind is absolute substance, intelligence and action. Mind is expressing everything beautiful, from the “mental molecule to infinity,” including all “Science and art.” Soul is the multiplier of an excellent, fecund, spiritual creation, and man expresses its creative dynamism.
Life augments our health. Principle amplifies our talents. Love enriches our relationships. Truth opens new doors of opportunities. Mind generates new and effective ideas for us to implement. Life causes us to triumph over adversities. We reflect spiritually the multiplicative action of creative Soul.
We can prove that the “… divine Mind produces in man health, harmony, and immortality” (M. B. Eddy). As we let go of a mistaken physical and psychological sense of identity, we find more of Soul’s spiritual good within ourselves.
It is the great “I AM” – Soul/Love – who is producing our perfect and immortal identities. Harmonious action, function, condition, substance, cause, effect, motive and reaction reign in Soul’s matter-less man and universe. We are endowed with the infinite health, harmony and immortality of the “I AM.”
We are Mind’s excellent forces of being.
