Spirit notes, observations & recognitions

I make little notes in my BlackBerry as things come to me, especially things of a spiritual nature - anything that helps me understand God better. Some are direct quotes from Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy. Here are some recent ones. Any of them could be expanded into a longer piece, and that may happen, as Love provides.

20110611 The so-called pleasures + pains of matter perish, and they must go out under the blaze of Truth, spiritual sense, and the actuality of being. (S+H:296)

20110609 My kindle displays 'Items Downloaded' each morning after I turn on the wifi function to get my newspaper, and give it a moment to connect. And there, just like that, is the new Christian Science Monitor. It strikes me this is a perfect example of how prayer works.

20110608 We live in an eternal moment where all the rules of Heaven apply.

20110607 To infinite, ever-present Love, all is Love, and there is no error, no sin, sickness, nor death. (567:7) Later the mail brought a PCH sweepstakes offer. I filled it in, put it in the mailbox, and later realized my error, brought it in, tore it up, put it in the trash.

20110606 Today I'm going to where God has reserved a place for me: Annual Meeting at the Mother Church in Boston.

2011605 We live + move + have our being in Mind, God's Mind. How could there be anything but Good in this Mind?

20110604. Life produces life. Truth produces truth. Love produces love. God is the doer, and God's work is done.

20110531 beautiful qualities come from God and are not subject to death, decay, or diminishment.

'...and real consciousness is cognizent only of the things of God.' (S+H:276)

20110530 Pray with True thoughts, God perceptions.

20110529 Truth, spiritually discerned, is scientifically understood. It casts out error and heals the sick. (S+H:275)

20110527 I am a spiritual being, and not subject to material conditions.

20110526 'as he stood before me leaning on his crutch, I said to him, "Which do you lean on the more, that crutch or on God?" He looked at me and said, "On God, threw away his crutch..and stood erect and free...' (MBE: Christian Healer, p121)

20110525 To lose excess body weight, feed the essential self and not the enlarged borders.

'Cast your net on the right side' I said, as I tore up the PCH sweepstakes entry I had put into the mail. And replaced it with a true thought and my dental bill payment.

20110524 As I am spiritual, nothing can happen to the real me except what expresses God's goodness and allness.

20110520 Spirit and its formations are the only realities of being. Matter disappears under the microscope of Spirit. (S+H:264)

20110519 Detatch sense from the body, or matter, which is only a form of human belief, and you may learn the meaning of God, or good, and the nature of the immutable and immortal. (S+H:261)

20110518 The Allness of God, good, is real and true: everything else is a mortal dream.

20110513 Hold thought steadfastly to the enduring, the good, and the true...

20110504 The steady emanation of God's being, of which I am a part: that is my reality.

20110504 Progress takes off human shackles. The finite must yield to the infinite. (S+H:256)

20110501 God is ALL, and GOOD, and wants to be known, even as we ourselves are known.

20110429 We are in eternal life right now, having a mortal dream.
