Read Between the Lines

When reading any book with the intent to increase spiritual power, I remind myself not to get hung up on the vocabulary or language. Human words can’t describe God any more than a wrench can describe a car. We use words to help us understand spiritual power just as we use a wrench to help us fix a car.

Reading 21st Century Science and Health, “God is Spirit; therefore the language of Spirit must be, and is, spiritual. Divine science attaches no physical characters and significance to the Supreme Being and manifestation.”

Not getting caught up in the material language we discover spiritual language can be heard. Spiritual power can be experience.
