The word, soul, is very familiar to spiritual students. Divine Science teaches that the soul is a receiver of thoughts and ideas from two sources: true unchanging ideas from our loving Creator AND impressions from the outer world perceived through our senses. The latter are riddled with error, and when these error thoughts dominate our soul’s attention, our experiences and relationships are uneven and undependable.
It is the content of our soul, true or false, that establishes our firmly held attitudes and convictions, our consciousness. And this invisible energy attracts our circumstances. Emmet Fox, an ordained Divine Science minister, said “life is consciousness.”
We have the power to select the content we hold in our soul. When we turn within often to love God; to think of the highest truth we know; to accept that all of God is everywhere present; that we are God’s beloved children, peace and joy fill our awareness. We have a new, higher point of view. We release the ups and downs that come to us. We nurture our soul with truth, and God’s activity reveals the good that is always with us. Jesus referred to this presence as the Father within that doeth the work.
Our loving Creator, we ask your help to spend time getting to know You.
We love You. Help us to love Your divine expressions, all of us. Amen.
