A word about religion or the God-idea (from a spiritualist)

I’m finishing a book cover design for the reprint of the book “CHRISTIAN SCIENCE RE-EXPLORED” by Margaret Laird, C.S.B.   The book is being reprinted by The Institute of Metaphysical Science based in LaJolla, California, now with a index. It’s been a gift to dig through the book again as I get side tracked from retyping the original book flap description for the final redesign.

The book is being reprinted now and will be available from the Institute of Metaphysics web site as well as the publisher. They’ve added an index which is incredible valuable to researchers and students of scientific metaphysics. I’ll add the url of the publisher once it’s ready. In the meantime, check out the IMS web site.

Here’s some thought from the Foreward of the book I want to share.

The world is a kind of spiritual kindergarten where bewildered infants are trying to spell God with the wrong blocks.  –Edwin Arlington Robinson

John Dorsey states his medical and spiritual truth as: “It is divine to be human and it is human to overlook it.”

Mary Baker Eddy states “As human thought changes from one stage to another of conscious pain and painlessness, sorrow and joy,–from fear to hope and from faith to understandings,–the visible manifestation will at last be man (note:not man as in gender by man as in conscious identity, or thought) governed by Soul, not by material sense.  The mariner will have dominion over the atmosphere and the great deep, over the fish of the sea and the fowls of the air. The astronomer will no longer look up to the stars,–they will look out from them upon the universe; and the florist will find their flower before its seed.”

Bicknell Young adds: ” Infinity is ceaseless unfoldment. Seeing that there is nothing conceivable and nothing really conceived outside of Infinity. God must be forever unfolding Himself, and because of being infinite, He never repeats Himself. “Behold I make all things new,” is being fulfilled daily and hourly in our understanding and practice. Old things are indeed passes away. Therefore, do not think backwards or even forwards, but now and infinitely.”

And H.G. Wells states ” A day will come when beings who are now latent in our thoughts and hidden in our loins shall stand upon this earth as one stands upon a footstool, and shall laugh and reach out their hands amid the stars.”

—————————-

I use the word God, or God-idea, Mind. and Divine interchangable–they are the same–the principal of existence. Consciousness cannot be divided into inner and outer since it is infinite!
