“Before time itself was measured, the Voice was speaking. The Voice was and is God. This celestial Word remained ever present with the Creator; His speech shaped the entire cosmos. Immersed in the practice of creating, all things that exist were birthed in Him. His breath filled all things with a living, breathing light—Then God surveyed everything He had made, savoring its beauty and appreciating its goodness…” and all Creation was done; it was complete. (The Voice, John 1:1-4 & Gen. 1:31)
Awareness Exercise: Notice how what’s different about “the world” compares with the presence or absence of the qualities you’ve been exploring for the past 5 days. Now, being aware of things and/or situations that good qualities seem to be absent from, fill your thoughts about them with good qualities. Has anything changed? If so, notice how and make note of it.
“ … rejoice in the small understanding [you] have already gained of the wholeness of Deity, and work gradually and gently up toward the perfect thought divine. This meekness will increase [your] apprehension of God, because [your] mental struggles and pride of opinion will proportionately diminish. (Unity of Good, by Mary Baker Eddy 5:3)
