Are you entertaining any sense of loss in your life? If so, then it’s time to replace that belief of loss with spiritual gain.
It’s critical that we never hold onto a belief of loss for we live out our beliefs. If one believes they are suffering from a loss, then they are liable to keep repeating that belief in their experience, either in the form of constant grieving over that perceived loss, or in other forms of loss.
A cure for loss is to gain. Ask, “What can I gain from my experience?” And then seek spiritual gain.
What appears to be lost physically, can be more than made up for spiritually.
For instance, if we’ve lost a loved one, we can replace that belief of loss with a clear understanding of that person’s spiritual individuality that hasn’t gone anywhere. That person is a spiritual being, at-one with God, in Spirit, that is as close as our thoughts. They live forever, as we do, and we find unity with them in the Mind of Spirit. As we let go of the physical concept of that person, and see them in Spirit, we feel our unity with them, and they feel as close to us as ever, if not more, because we’re perceiving their real individuality. Loss is turned into gain.
It’s inevitable that we learn everything and everyone in the whole universe to be spiritual. We cannot cling to a material sense of another, or things, and make spiritual progress.
Life’s lessons force us to let go of the material one way or the other. So, rather than fight and complain, whine and protest when the demand comes to let go of the material concept and replace it with the spiritual idea, be quick about learning the lesson! Let the physical go. Grab onto the spiritual and run with it. You’ll be infinitely happier, make far more rapid progress, and stay healthy too.
It’s all gain with God.
“Mortals must look beyond fading, finite forms, if they would gain the true sense of things. Where shall the gaze rest but in the unsearchable realm of Mind?” (Mary Baker Eddy, Science and Health, p. 264).
