The idea of one Mind isn’t new. I learned it through the teachings of 19th century’s Mary Baker Eddy. In her writings, I also discovered the idea that all communication comes from this one divine Mind.
How does that help me?
When I feel as though I’m misunderstanding another person, I calmly remind myself that human minds don’t really communicate and that I can tune into divine Mind. Understanding flows easier when I do this.
In my prayers, I try to understand just what does Mind communicate? Because Mind is Love, it can only communicate loving, loveable thoughts. It can’t communicate fear and loss.
This helps when I don’t have a cell phone on me. For example, on March 24, I drove nearly 2-hours to get to the Rhinecliff train station. I entered an empty train station, ready to pick up our daughter and her family. The fact there was no one in the station was eerie. After about 4 minutes, a young lady walked in and asked if I was waiting for the 11:58 train.
“Yes,” I said.
Then she was curious because, “I heard the train was canceled because of derailment.”
I nearly panicked, but she added, “I don’t know who to call to learn if the train is coming.”
I told her, “If I can borrow your phone, I can call my other daughter at home and she will know.”
The young lady graciously let me borrow her phone.
“Yes Mom, the train was canceled and sister is headed to Grand Central Station to catch a metro train to Beacon. Call me from there when you arrive,” I heard over the phone.
We were glad to hear no serious injurious occurred and I got in the car and drove to Beacon.
After arriving, a nice young man let me use his phone to call home again. I heard, “Yes, sister will arrive at 2:09.”
I’m thankful that there is no interruption in the communication of divine Mind. I’m thankful there is constant reception between God and us, and our Father-Mother God’s communication is all done with love, grace, and simplicity.
