Wedded to Love
Julio C. Rivas, CS
Love is wedded to its own ideas. This makes us wedded to Soul’s infinite goodness – to health, joy, purpose, strength, purity, success, grace, peace and power. Our conscious awareness of man’s unity to Mind separates us from the illusions of material suffering.
The Ego-God subsumes and empowers the Ego-man. The two are blended eternally. The “bride” and the “Lamb” are biblical terms which signify the eternal and harmonious unity existing between Mind and its spiritual idea.
This recognition of divine oneness between God and man removes from human thought the misconception of a corporeal selfhood and its list of sins, failures, fears and sufferings. When we replace a mortal sense of ourselves with the spiritually real, the result is healing to our human experience.
Man is a compounded, spiritual and perfect individuality. The complete idea, man, is balanced beautifully by feminine and masculine qualities. The two individual natures in one are represented in Scripture by the term “the Lamb’s wife.”
Theologian M. B. Eddy explains that “In this divinely united spiritual consciousness, there is no impediment to eternal bliss …” By accepting our united masculine-feminine consciousness we transcend suffering and enjoy Life’s infinite munificence.
Mind’s creative intelligence and power is fully expressed in man’s incorporeal, celestial completeness. Love’s beautiful, harmonious and rich universe is man’s divine inheritance and his natural environment. Disease, sin, destruction, lack and evil are mental distortions that give way to our cognizance of boundless, spiritual harmony.
Scripture informs that of Christ’s “fullness have all we received, and grace for grace.” Soul fills us with Christly wisdom every moment of our lives. When we employ our Christly endowments it is easier to separate evil from good and to remand the former to its destruction.
Our Christly unity to perfect Mind-Truth gives us peace amidst the “storms” of human troubles and it promotes our prosperity. It alters our experience in multitudinous ways – it harmonizes our body, relationships and finances. It leaves us thoroughly whole.
