In the past 19 years, since I’ve given up my washer and dryer, I’ve spent quite a bit of time in laundromats, and I’ve met the most interesting people there. Recently, I met a woman who had lived in our mountain town for about a year. She wasn’t happy here in any way. She told me how she couldn’t stand the weather, her job, her apartment, the lack of public transportation, our farmers’ market. For most of her diatribe, I calmly listened to her and agreed that she should probably go back to Houston where she was happier. But when she started to put down our local farmers’ market, I verbally retaliated in a fashion more vehement than expected! Looking back on the situation, I realize that the “peace of God” that we are contemplating today has nothing to do with degrees. Divine Love doesn’t stay calm and then get upset if someone says something derogatory about a cause close to Its heart. Today my focus will be on experiencing peace in every situation, not just the ones I have no emotional connection towards. Namasté.
Mary Baker Eddy quote: “The calm and exalted thought or spiritual apprehension is at peace.”

Many of us are resistant to change. We like the security of things staying the same, and often rebel against changes even though we innately sense they would be wonderful. And the changes that aren’t always so pleasant — the loss of a loved one, being fired from a job, losing a home to fire or other devastating circumstance — those things are feared and dreaded and worried about. I’m sure you know people who have faced such seeming-loss and appear to be serene and happily accepting of whatever may come. That’s what it means to “be still and go home”. Once I realize that home is within, that nothing can change in my true home where divine Love is always constant, then I can rest assured that all is well, no matter what the circumstance may be in form. For this I am very grateful!
Mary Baker Eddy quote: “Man in the likeness of God, as revealed in Science, cannot help being immortal. Though the grass seemeth to wither and the flower to fade, they reappear. Erase the figures which express number, silence the tones of music, give to the worms the body called man, and yet the producing, governing, divine Principle lives on,–in the case of man as truly as in the case of numbers and of music,–despite the so-called laws of matter, which define man as mortal.” Science & Health Page 81:17-24

For the last several years, I’ve avoided one of my neighbors, who is 90-plus years old, because it seemed there was no such thing as a short visit. She would tell me things I didn’t want to know about her family and other people, so I began to avoid her. This morning she was sitting on her porch and asked for help. Her phone was not working and it’s connected to a Lifeline button which she can push if she needs help. As it was going to take some time to get the phone company there to reconnect her, I told her I’d come over every hour and make sure she was okay. Today she started talking about herself, from childhood through more recent times, and it was fascinating! She told me the happiest times of her life were picking cotton with her sisters in the 1930s on a farm in Mississippi. Every visit with her today brought new adventures from her life. When she would wander into condemnation of others, I would simply tell her I had to go now, but would be back soon and wanted to hear more stories about her — not others. It was like watching a documentary — and I’m glad I was tuned in! I’m happy to find out what I was missing by not being honest with her. I don’t want to hear gossipy things about others, but hearing about her feelings and experiences was lovely. I’m grateful for this day with her.
Mary Baker Eddy quote: “The poor suffering heart needs its rightful nutriment, such as peace, patience in tribulation, and a priceless sense of the dear Father’s loving-kindness.”

There’s a young woman who works in a market I frequent. I was surprised when she told me she had been gone for almost a year. Time is so elastic! She tells me she got married and it was a horrible experience. She said she didn’t think she could ever look at herself in the mirror without blame. She wanted to tell me details, but I asked her not to. I told her she’s the reflection of divine Love and that nothing could change that. I suggested she walk in the woods, plant some flowers, get plenty of exercise. She said there was nothing she would rather do than walk in the woods and talk to God, but that she didn’t know where to go. I suggested a beautiful spot out of town called the Outdoor Meditation Sanctuary (OMS). When I described it to her, she began to cry and thanked me profusely for telling her. We all have times we need to hear about our true, pure Being. Namasté ~~~
Mary Baker Eddy quote: “Immortal and divine Mind presents the idea of God: first, in light; second, in reflection; third, in spiritual and immortal forms of beauty and goodness. But this Mind creates no element nor symbol of discord and decay. God creates neither erring thought, mortal life, mutable truth, nor variable love.”

I woke up this morning wishing I didn’t need to speak at all today. I didn’t even go to the farmers’ market, nor did I attend an early-morning monthly meeting scheduled for today. Instead I spent a few hours with some of my favorite metaphysical teachers, via their books and videos, then went for a long walk with my dog around Black Bass Lake. I feel brand new! I realize we can’t always have the luxury of choosing peace in our every surrounding, but we can choose it in our thought. I find days like today make it easier to know that peaceful joy no matter where I am. Namastè ~~~
Mary Baker Eddy quote: “Willingness to become as a little child and to leave the old for the new, renders thought receptive of the advanced idea. Gladness to leave the false landmarks and joy to see them disappear, — this disposition helps to precipitate the ultimate harmony.”

This photo of Ken and Sandy Starbird is my very favorite one. I first met these artists when they came to my gallery seeking representation. No, that’s not right. They presented themselves and we all saw at least a glimmer of why we were being brought together. Our association grew into friendship and loving appreciation. Seven weeks ago, Ken was told he had a brain tumor which was termed aggressive. I’ve always admired their interaction with each other. There is a palpable trust and respect running through their pure and passionate love for each other. In these past few days, I’ve witnessed an all-encompassing peace surrounding them. They know Love is eternal, and they have inspired me to live Its ever-presence. As I ponder metaphysical statements on physical so-called death, I see that all of us can transcend material belief and see what is just out of sight. As we are told today, “Enlightenment is but a recognition, not a change at all.” Here’s to you, Ken and Sandy! Cheers for leaving behind the fear and embracing the Love!
Mary Baker Eddy quote: “Truth and Love enlighten the understanding, in whose “light shall we see light;” and this illumination is reflected spiritually by all who walk in the light and turn away from a false material sense.”

“Homeless … Again”
ceramic sculpture from Ken Starbird
A number of people whom I know quite well have told me that they don’t feel they belong here. I think we all, at some time or another have felt this way. What if, rather than us not belonging here, this “here” we speak of isn’t what we think it is? What if we don’t belong in this crazy world, but the world we see isn’t as solid as we think it is? Perhaps our true home is something we’ve sensed is there, sort of like seeing something out of the corner of your eye, but when you look directly at it, it’s not there. For years I grasped at straws while ignoring the vast Truth of eternity. We’re not strangers in a strange land when we realize the truth of the land in which we abide. We think everything is real that we touch and see, but it’s shifting and changing, as opposed to the omnipresent stability of our true home. So let’s be still a moment and ask to know what that home is. We want it so badly, but we’ve forgotten what it is. Now we’re not afraid to remember!
Mary Baker Eddy quote: “As mortals begin to understand Spirit, they give up the belief that there is any true existence apart from God.”

I joyously accept the fact that Life is deathless! But then I try to turn that immortality into material existence. I imagine myself going into the “afterlife” in this body, with these feelings, seeing others I love in their bodies with their individuality intact. I may get very upset if anyone tries to tell me differently! I think it’s comforting to believe that life beyond the “pearly gates” will be just like this one is — except better! But wait a minute. If we are spiritual right now, not material, if we are One by virtue of being an idea of God, then we are joined with everyone we love right here and now. We needn’t wait until we die to be together because we’ve never been apart! No one of us knows exactly what will happen after the change we call death. But by listening to those who have more experience than I do in such matters, I am gaining a sense of what seems plausible and what doesn’t. One thing I’m absolutely sure of is that there is nothing to fear and nothing to lose. Life is eternal right now!
Mary Baker Eddy quote: “If the Principle, rule, and demonstration of man’s being are not in the least understood before what is termed death takes mortals, they will rise no higher spiritually in the scale of existence on account of that single experience, but will remain as material as before the transition, still seeking happiness through a material, instead of through a spiritual sense of life, and from selfish and inferior motives.”

How surprised would you be if your prayers were answered? I have a friend who tells me she’s given up on God because she’s never seen any proof. Upon questioning her, it turns out she has a laundry list of things she asks for regularly, and none of her wishes have come true. Once again, I feel we often confuse divine Love with Santa Claus. We may be asking some guy in the sky for special dispensation, rather than recognizing that this Principle is an eternal activity which we can plug into at any time. It’s kind of like electricity: It’s there, but it doesn’t supply our needs unless we know how to utilize it. And the secret to plugging in is to not want anything! By not delineating what we think we need, but rather keeping our thoughts tuned to the divine Mind, all our needs are supplied. The nature of this Oneness insures that what we need comes to us, and goes out to others, and we needn’t tell It what It is!
Mary Baker Eddy quote: “How empty are our conceptions of Deity! We admit theoretically that God is good, omnipotent, omnipresent, infinite, and then we try to give information to this infinite Mind. We plead for unmerited pardon and for a liberal outpouring of benefactions. Are we really grateful for the good already received? Then we shall avail ourselves of the blessings we have, and thus be fitted to receive more. Gratitude is much more than a verbal expression of thanks. Action expresses more gratitude than speech.”

There is much talk nowadays about the melding of science and religion. In their traditional meanings, this would be impossible. Religion has taken on too many facets to be purely the knowledge of God. On many levels, it has become more political than spiritual. Science, on the other hand, means knowledge. But since its definition includes rational explanations and predictable results, it has long been left out of spirituality. While typical religion may never qualify under this definition, the knowledge of God certainly does. When Mary Baker Eddy discovered the science of the Christ in the 1860s, she first called it moral science. In her 600 pages of explanation, this science is shown to meet all the criteria to be called such. In this time of rapidly shifting perceptions, many people are grasping what this means and embracing the beauty and perfection of it. Mary would be pleased!
Mary Baker Eddy quote: “When the final physical and moral effects of Christian Science are fully apprehended, the conflict between truth and error, understanding and belief, Science and material sense ,,, will cease, and spiritual harmony reign.”
