You already know that happiness, stress relief AND physical wellness result from changes in your mind. But how do you get free from the mind’s sick, repetitive, depressing or stressed patterns of thought and reaction?
One way is to redefine what you think of as your mind. Our “mind” is whatever we believe to be the source of our thoughts, feelings and responses. We’re prisoners of whatever we believe our “mind” to be. That is, our thoughts can rise no higher than what we believe our mind to be capable of.
So if you start to relate more fully to infinite Spirit as Mind—as living source of healthy, balanced, loving thought and feeling—it becomes possible to get progressively above and beyond the little mortal kind of mind that’s been hurting you.
Practice this today. Right now, take couple of minutes to acknowledge and embrace infinite Spirit as Mind. Consciously connect yourself to this healthy, knowing, joyful, intelligent source. Engage this Mind’s transformative capability to see the good in you and everyone else.
In Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, Mary Baker Eddy describes this Mind’s nature and your relationship with it as the “divine Science.” She writes
“The effect of this Science is to stir the human mind to a change of base, on which it may yield to the harmony of the divine Mind.” (click here to read this in the book)
