Defeating the Challenge of Aging   Leave a comment

concertSentinel Radio Chat with Rob Gilbert.

Click here to listen to a recording of this live chat, Defeating the Challenge of Aging, with Rob Gilbert.  Rob is a full-time Christian Science healer and teacher.

Rob begins by pointing out that the general view of aging is growth, maturity, and decay, but that Mary Baker Eddy takes an entirely different view. In Science and Health she wrote, “Each successive stage of experience unfolds new views of divine goodness and love” (p. 66). He says, “That’s what we have to look forward to,” not aging and decline.

He responds to questions about how to get people to stop judging one by one’s age, especially in relation to employment, feelings of loneliness, bitterness over the past, physical challenges such as decreased mobility, potential memory loss, and diabetes. He also addresses how to pray about the influence of heredity and other age-related conditions.

…  I’ve come to regard spiritual qualities and ideas as having much more to do with who I actually am than with anything else that would appear to make up my identity. …   For me, this passage from Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures gets right to the heart of the matter:  “Man is more [emphasis added] than a material form with a mind inside, which must escape from its environments in order to be immortal.  Man reflects infinity, and this reflection is the true idea of God” (Mary Baker Eddy, p. 258). …

When it comes to spiritual ideas, I feel like a little child discovering something new every day in a world of inexhaustible treasures and possibilities.  There’s simply no end to discovering the qualities and ideas God expresses in His own nature and in His creation.  Begin to think of them, and you’ll see what I mean:  peace, justice, kindness, compassion, ability, poise — and on and on.  And then think of the endless possibilities for expressing any one of these qualities more fully in your thoughts, activities, and relationships.  For me, that’s a thrilling prospect — and it keeps me plenty occupied.

Clear the Clutter: A New Year’s Resolution   Leave a comment

A Christian Science Perspective by Patricia Hardee

$ dreamstime_2686909… To have order in our lives, it is essential to keep what’s good and get rid of the rest. That’s why many take a clutter-clearing vow as a New Year’s resolution. Many a closet and even a few garages get an upgrade. But as a student of the Bible and the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures” by Mary Baker Eddy, I know the best New Year’s resolutions begin with spiritual renewal.

Where to start? What must come first? Mental clutter, which I’ve come to know as matter-based thinking and its effect of sickness and sin. In the chapter titled “Christian Science Practice” in Science and Health, Mrs. Eddy wrote: “Stand porter at the door of thought. Admitting only such conclusions as you wish realized in bodily results, you will control yourself harmoniously” (p. 392).

This mental clearing takes spiritual know-how and mental discipline, … read more …

Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy is the textbook of Christian Science Healing.  In it Eddy writes:  When fear disappears, the foundation of disease is gone. … In proportion as matter loses to human sense all entity as man, in that proportion does man become its master (p368-369).
