Divine Life Remains

It’s difficult to fathom. Nearly impossible to see or feel. But divine Life is cause and effect.

Life isn’t divided. Life isn’t half of anything. Life isn’t a causing spirit, eventually up against its effects of manifest truth or love.

If divine Life were divisible, we could believe that the spirit of Life caused the effect of creation, with infinite effects/beings that can evolve, devolve, or do everything in their power to submit to divine Life and live forever in heaven.

But divine Life remains cause and effect.

I am not cause or effect.

I am, you are, inclusive to, the one cause and effect of divine Life. As much as we don’t want to admit it sometimes, the spirit of life goes on, despite the happiness and horrors of human life, of birth, growth, decay, death.

Humility, perhaps humiliation, allows us to recognize this pattern of life as cause and effect, even when we want to insist on that which we can’t, human life as either cause or effect.

Creation remains, intelligence remains, love remains without human life or knowledge because it existed before human life.

It’s difficult to fathom one cause and effect when I’m giving power to causes other than divine Life. It’s nearly impossible to see or feel the effects of divine Life when I’m expecting effects that can’t possibly come from an indivisible divine Life.

I think it’s logically consistent, emotionally prudent, and spiritually sound to get to know and acknowledge one cause and effect. The cause and effect of divine Life, inclusive of us and all.

“Though the way is dark in mortal sense, divine Life and Love enlighten the way, and destroy the restless human thinking, the fear of death, and the supposed reality of [hopeless irrationality].”–21st Century Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures: A modern version of Mary Baker Eddy’s Science and Health

The Infinite and the Webb Telescope

First posted at www.Christ-Scientist.com

The James Webb Space Telescope launched December 25th, to travel a million miles to Lagrange Point 2, where it will capture images of old-time galaxies and stars that, 13 billion years ago, emitted light that has since stretched into the infrared region of the color spectrum.

In other words, the Webb Telescope will prompt discoveries that will modify our view of the universe and creation.

As scientists of Mind, what view do we have now?

Last century, with the aid of older telescopes, an infinite was revealed. We’re now learning about an ever-expanding cosmos. The problem is, for everything learned about the physical workings, we have two more questions.

To settle the mysteries, we can take analyze the mental workings behind the fabulous eccentric goals of the Webb telescope, the goals, to detect old light or to determine the origin of the universe up against the Big-Bang theory.

The Webb Telescope is a result of curiosity, creativity, and intelligence, working together. Whether the telescope works physically, or not, is to be determined, but either way, our curiosity, creativity, and intelligence will remain and expand with the courage that doesn’t quit learning. Infinite discovery.

Merriam-Webster defines, infinite, as having no limits, endless.

What if the Webb telescope shows no end to light?

If there is no end, is there no beginning?

No beginning, no end.

Jesus used the idea of an infinite to show our ability to forgive others, and our self, for transgressions or for quitting truth and love.

From the Gospel Luke, “Peter came to Jesus and asked, “Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother or sister who sins against me? Up to seven times?”Jesus answered, “I tell you, not seven times, but seventy-seven times.”

In the Hebrew language of the Old Testament, the word, “seven” resembles the word for wholeness or completeness. Infinite?

With our own mental telescopes, we search for enlightenment, sourced from infinite Mind, Spirit. With our spirituality, we express forgiveness, newness, self-control, gratitude, honesty, endlessly.

Peer reviews follow. Peer analyses of forgiveness and spirituality come with high approvals. We prove that unforgiveness limits us, whereas forgiveness removes limits.  

Epimenides of Crete, reputed as a sixth century seer, before the birth of Christ Jesus, has been credited with the saying, about God, “For in him we live and move and have our being.” Paul quotes the biblical words in Acts 17:28.
