Keeping thoughts straight

Sometimes I wear my shirt backwards. And, no I’m not ten years old.

I wake in the morning, get dressed, and work through the day. When I’m undressing at night, I notice the shirt tag going up over my head. Alas. I can crack myself up.

Keeping my thoughts on straight is more important to me.

Divine knowledge has taught me not to get thoughts backward. Start with God, not with humans, for my answers. Start with Love, not anger.

From 21st Century Science and Health:

“It is backwards to believe that anything can overpower omnipotent and eternal Life. This Life must be brought to light by the understanding that there is no death, as well as by other graces of Spirit. We must begin however, with the more simple demonstrations of control, and the sooner we begin the better. The final demonstration takes time for its accomplishment. When walking, we are guided by the eye. We look before our feet, and if we are wise, we look beyond a single step in the line of spiritual advancement.

“When judging Christian Science, sanction only such methods as are demonstrable in Truth and known by their fruits. Classify other methods that suggest futile or backward behavior as did Paul in his great epistle to the Galatians, when he wrote as follows:

“’The acts of the sinful nature are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God. But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.’[1]

[1] Gal. 5:19–23
