Reading & Meditation (Love) by Rev. Christine 2/26/2023
Today I’m sharing with you from Divine Science Its Principle and Practice by Malinda Cramer and Fannie B. James.
When our life and behavior rise from a spiritual basis, we see life as something greater than a birth-and-death arrangement. We begin to think in terms of a spiritual universe, rather than of a material world; we think in terms of eternal life and the immortality of the individual soul. We then understand that since God is infinite perfection and creates perfection, we are all potentially perfect in Christ, the perfect pattern of MAN.
As the soul’s evolution is realized in daily living, we begin to take on the likeness of the God-image within us. We begin to see that even during this period of gradual development, we are nevertheless innately perfect; our perfection is the spiritual truth of us, and we look up to this omnipresent and indwelling nature as our true being. “We have this treasure in earthen vessels.” 2 Cor. 4:7 Strict adherence to principle and faithful practice bring out what is potential within. We unfold the fullness of what is within us.
To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth.” John 18:37
Meditation - Love
We shall now move into meditation. Let us now turn inward to our holy temple. And be aware of our breath as we breathe in deeply and exhale slowly. Now as I speak to take these words in for yourself.
God is all as a living Divine Presence of Love. All proceeds out of this infinite Presence. Therefore I am a living expression of this infinite Presence that is All Love. I am ever unfolding a greater awareness of who and what I am. I am pure spirit both invisible and visible, made in the image and likeness of Infinite Spirit. I am vitally alive in Divine love. (Repeat)
Omnipresent is love everywhere present. Our universe is love, every star is love, our planet earth is love, all is an expression of Infinite love. Every living creature is a creation of pure Divine love. The activity of love is all life, all life is love expressing. All there is, is love, and love in expression; here, now, and everywhere. I live in a world of love. (Silence)
As we bring our attention back, let us give thanks for these moments in the silence, in communion.
