Reading & Meditation (Life) by Rev. Christine 3/26/2023
Today I’m sharing excerpts from the book Mysteries authored by Nona Brooks in 1924.
Let us be well content in the assurance that all form is a thought of God, for He that keepeth the world as Idea in Mind-Universal is living us now; there is no instant of separation. Substance is Spirit; Spirit in action is Creation; matter or form is Substance or Spirit in Action.
God is expressing as the tiniest particle and the mightiest solar system; hence we are conceiving the immediacy of God as well as the universality. We see God as the Infinite Being who is including men and all other forms of manifestation in His love. The old human concept of separation and limitation is truly giving place to the consciousness of the universality of God in the hearts of men.
Whereas, the word matter has implied inactivity and inertness; in the new modes of thought it implies continuous activity; and to the Divine Scientist it is form, God in manifestation. The rock by the wayside was dead to the thinker of old, but man was alive. The loveliest flower that grows was thought of as insensitive, and unconscious of the surroundings, while the animal was supposed to be capable of feeling. Everything which did not have the sense organs with which men and animals are equipped was thought to be lacking in the power of consciousness. The thought habit of separating differing expressions in the world grew in proportions until it proclaimed dead matter and living substance.
Today when we say, I, we include the whole. All life is one. Body is one with Spirit; it is whole, beautiful, and wonderful in its mechanism. There is truly one body in Christ. Let us glory in the universe of form which God is creating, and know that he who loses his limited conception of matter or form for truth’s sake, shall find all life–forms one. He shall see God in action.
Meditation - Life
We shall now move into meditation. Let us turn inwardly to our holy temple. Now breathe in deeply and exhale slowly as we bring our attention to our heart.
There is but One Presence, One Substance, One Activity, One All - the Omnipresence of God. Divine Spirit is the creator and Substance of all creation; here, now and everywhere. This ever living all Presence is the life, the expression, the love and intelligence that I am as mind, body and soul. The activity of God is expressing in, through and as my very life.
I am the activity of the living God in expression. (Repeat)
Every cell, atom, molecule and particle of my being is of Divine Spirit Substance; and is consciousness, is light and is love expressing as my life here, now and always. As I expand my sense of self beyond this body form, I am aware of my connectedness to everyone, everything, everywhere. I am one with the universe, the stars, the planets, and the space between. I am a living embodiment of love. We will now be in the silence.
Let us take a moment to let the joy of gratitude fill our hearts. Thank you Divine Presence. So it is, Amen.
