During this last year, the whole world has had time to breathe and reflect. Some people have enjoyed the quiet, others have not. Many have had sadness in their lives, others unexpected joys. For others there is naturally a mixture of these but we know it has been a changing time for all mankind.
I really like these words by Mary Baker Eddy:
Each successive stage of experience unfolds new views of divine goodness and love.
(Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, Mary Baker Eddy, p. 66:14)
I have been heartened hearing how people have been experiencing the unfolding new views and there is a palpable sense that we needed this time for reflection. It was needed for us to see where we have been and where we would like to go now. In what way we would like to travel through our lives and express our qualities for the future.
What goodness and love can mankind now bring to the new view? I look forward to watching the unfolding of God’s universe, not the remaking of what has been made, but the unfolding and uncovering of what has been there all the time because now we know how to pause and really look, I have no doubt we will see incredible wonders.
