Above the World

A wonderful dimension of reality opened for me as a metaphysical perspective of life dawned in my awareness. The first clue came in a Baptist church Sunday school room in which youngsters my own age of 13 or so were reciting Bible quotations to chapter and verse prompts called out by a teacher.  As a new arrival both to the church and to such an exercise, I could not answer what I didn’t know. I heard beautiful words of important and loved New Testament passages and noticed that they were spoken without explanation of a greater meaning I could sense living within those words.  I knew that there was something missing that I wanted to find, and my quest for meaning beyond the literal interpretation of words and things began.

My path carried me through the works of John Donne, William Blake, the American Transcendentalists and Emerson’s writing about the oneness at the core of existence.  A mystical experience opened me to the realization that I am part of a great wholeness of life, and that where I truly live and move and have my being is in something grand yet unseen.  I was ripe for Science of Mind, and was led into it by a fascination with the mental and emotional equivalents of illness. I learned that we are Spirit, Mind and Body — one thing on three levels of expression – and that the healing of bodies and conditions is supported by transforming the equivalents that underlie them.  I entered formal Science of Mind study to be a Licensed Practitioner so that I might support others in realizing within themselves, and then revealing in their living, the unalterable wholeness within.

The metaphysical perception of life always has me knowing that there is more going on than what I can see.  It helps me remember that all circumstances and situations can be used for awakening to greater spiritual truth and awareness, and for lifting into higher levels of good and freedom.  I find this true in my personal life, I see it in the life of others, and I believe this is true in the collective experiences we have in groups, in communities and in our world.  We are in a time of what some term “unprecedented changes” with difficulties in many places. Spiritual awareness does not deny that this is so. But it does call us up to seek higher meaning and to embrace the dance we do, centered as we are, between heaven and earth.
