Walking in the woods is a favorite past-time for me. I listen to the trees and birds. I pick up litter.
The other day it was windy. Urgh. The wind kept blowing off my hat. It felt as though my mind was being blown into despair, until I remembered God has power over my human mind.
I re-thought wind.
Rather than coming from the standpoint that wind is annoying, I took a metaphysical approach to looking at wind.
It symbolizes stirring stagnate thought.
It renews the atmosphere.
It shows movement, progress.
I cinched on my hat and my walk went much better.
In my new book, from science & religion to God, we can read, “Spiritual consciousness requires a mental effort. We start with thought and work patiently to conquer all that is unlike God. We have to begin at the highest standpoint possible. Start with mind instead of brain. Start with humanity instead of egotism. Start with spiritual history rather than mortal history. Start with God instead of many creators.
“Giving our attention to spiritual interpretations should move us to new standpoints.
“…Understanding comes through spiritual logic and revelation. Following the signposts of divine law, we comprehend the Truth that is changing the world for the better. In this path we find progress attended by life and peace.”
