It’s springtime in the part of the world where I live. Fruit trees radiant in stunning bloom, flowers painting the landscape with red, pink, and lavender swatches of brilliant color, and the smell of freshness in the air greet one at every corner.
For those who fear springtime for health reasons, it’s a wonderful opportunity to understand the truth about the spring of God’s creating.
The spring of God’s creating is not a material cycle fraught with danger, but a spiritual unfoldment of Life’s blessing of continuous good. It’s not a season to fear, but to enjoy.
God is all good. The trees and flowers of God’s creating are good. The environment of God is good. The atmosphere one breathes in God’s presence is healthy. The effect of walking, living, and moving about in the realm of divine Love is positive. There isn’t anything bad or harmful about experiencing the springtime of God’s creating.
Mortal mind perverts God’s spring by calling it material and insisting that evil is real and prolific throughout this season. It then finds evil and danger everywhere it looks.
Mortal mind is wrong!
God’s spring is spiritual. It is of Mind, not of matter, and it’s a season of purity, safety, holiness, and spirituality. Its atmosphere is spiritual mindedness. Its environment is Truth. Its effect is solely from Love.
To keep yourself healthy, stay clear on the spiritual truth about the spring of God’s creating. It’s not a product of mortal mind, but a splendid, positive unfoldment of divine Mind.
Mary Baker Eddy wrote, “What an abuse of natural beauty to say that a rose, the smile of God, can produce suffering! The joy of its presence, its beauty and fragrance, should uplift the thought, and dissuade any sense of fear or fever”
(Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 175).
Have no fear of springtime. Love God’s spring, a season of Life that signifies renewal, refreshment, and exhilaration. Stay spiritually minded and live free of suffering.
