“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.” (Isa. 55:8-11)
Awareness Exercise: Take several quiet moments today to become aware of Mind’s transmissions. Ask for clarity about something you need help with in your life right now and then listen patiently for a transmission. Notice whether you can hear a transmission or not. Remember back to God is Soul: Intuition and know that this sense is direct communication with God. How easy or difficult is it to hear? Does the level of ease or difficulty change as you do this exercise? Consider how you might tune in to the station with less interference. What do you have to do to adjust the dial? Practice tuning in and adjusting the dial. What happens when you tune in and act on the direction you received? Did it fix the problem? If not, keep practicing and note the results.
“The verity of Mind shows conclusively how it is that matter seems to be, but is not. Divine Science, rising above physical theories, excludes matter, resolves things into thoughts, and replaces the objects of material sense with spiritual ideas. The term Christian Science was introduced by the author to designate the scientific system of divine healing.” (SH 123:11-18)
