If your thinking ever feels muddled, there’s a way to clear it up. Start thinking spiritual! Get focused on God’s reality as All-in-all, with no other power or existence other than good.
Muddled thinking is confused thinking, a state of the human mind that is unclear about God’s reality. It entertains doubt and fears, harbors anxieties, and worries about the future because it lacks a spiritual basis to find peace and calm.
The opposite of muddled thinking is clear spiritual thinking.
Mary Baker Eddy gives us direction to demonstrate clear spiritual thinking. She wrote, “For right reasoning there should be but one fact before the thought, namely, spiritual existence” (Science and Health, p. 492). When one reasons out from spiritual existence, one sees that God is omnipresent good, ever-present Love, and all-powerful Truth. In spiritual existence, there is no evil to fear, no disease to dread, no worry to entertain. Everything in spiritual existence expresses the eternal order and harmony of God. And there is no confusion about what is real and what is not real. God is the only reality in the allness of God!
As a child of God, you possess the ability to think clearly, to think spiritually. That’s the way God made your Mind, the divine Mind, and keeps it.
There is no confusion in the Mind of Truth. The view is clear.
