Love (God) is elementary to Science of Mind Declaration of Principles. They state “We believe – in God, the Living Spirit Almighty; one, indestructible, absolute and self-existent Cause. This One manifests itself in and through all creation but is not absorbed by its creation. The manifest universe is the body of God; it is the logical, necessary outcome of the infinite self-knowingness of God…” One becomes a witnessing presence to one’s own self-love, self-self-worth, self-esteem by “Loving who one is by losing who one isn’t.”
This state of Loving Presence is the all of everything and the all of nothing – coming together in Conscious Unity – beyond all duality, division, diversion of illusion of separation. Science of Mind does not deny the experience of illusion. Science of Mind sees illusion as the seeing of things from a perspective of individual parts rather than from a comprehensive view point of over all wholeness of each and all of the parts as being part of the One Presence of Love.
This One Presence of Love transcends dark of our fears by the experiential awakening awareness of Love’s Light honoring a whole, perfect, complete eternity of all as one and of one as all. As one feels, leans, lives into this whole, perfect,complete eternity – one becomes the conscious shift – as shifting from lower case to upper case on a keyboard – in which one moves from tonality of aloneness – to harmonic frequency of oneness of love.
Matt Kahn says “In a world of endless questions, love is the only answer.” Questing to find love in the world without will fail. Love is not found in the materialism of a world driven by the profits of capitalism, a society driven by consumerism, or a consciousness consummated in religious righteousness. Love will not be found by looking to the right wing, left wing, or West Wing of political agendas driven by aggrandized egos, golden parachutes of bailouts or the hardcore line drawn in the sand of putting one’s own priorities over the good of many.
Marianne Williamson shares “In every moment, we either expand the heart or contract it.” The Spirit of Love is demanding – requiring one stand before the mirror of self – more naked than the day one was born. Naked to the fear of losing oneself. Naked to attachment. Naked to the undefined of yet to be. Yet in this courage to face the reflection of oneself a Divine Emanation shines through from a beyond the reflection in the mirror, and too, from beyond even the surface of the mirror. For beyond the mirror is the miracle of Love as Self.
