“Be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind.” Romans 12:2 When we read these words Paul wrote to the new Christians in Rome, we begin to wonder what we could be transformed from to what we would be transformed into.
As a Divine Science student, I can already see my transformation from a person who easily placed blame; who got angry, discouraged. The very first, basic class in Divine Science teaches that cause is within; effect is in the outer. This is the Law of Expression (like begets like) and it explains why treating the outer effect and leaving the cause untouched means that the same circumstance will keep appearing in your life. My path to transformation makes me aware of cause. What am I holding onto in my established attitudes, beliefs, moods, feelings? This is my consciousness and it attracts outer forms to match it.
So, what am I being transformed into? I notice I am more loving, more patient, more accepting of people very different from me. I no longer worry. Imagine that! I pray from inside God mind and not to a God out there. I no longer give God advice about the best outcomes. With all my heart I want what God wants, whatever it is.
Take time to renew your mind with spiritual ideas and begin to notice the transformation. It will come. Consciousness is life
Dear God, thank you that there is no separation. I am forever in your Presence and I am beyond grateful. Amen
