Here Today, here tomorrow.
Monitor founder Mary Baker Eddy was dedicated to helping others grasp the concept of God’s allness and its power to heal and maintain lives for the better without interruption. She wrote: “Let us remember that God – good – is omnipotent; therefore evil is impotent. There is but one side to good, – it has no evil side; there is but one side to reality, and that is the good side.
“God is All, and in all: that finishes the question of a good and a bad side to existence” (“Christian Healing,” p. 10).
Prayer gives us the spiritual authority to lift our thought above dark images of decline and retrogression to our God-bestowed growth in grace – the only reality we truly have and can never lose.
Mrs. Eddy continues on the same page: “If you wish to be happy, argue with yourself on the side of happiness; take the side you wish to carry, and be careful not to talk on both sides, or to argue stronger for sorrow than for joy. You are the attorney for the case, and will win or lose according to your plea.”
The spiritual law of one good side and its action supports the prayerful plea for ourselves and our neighbors near and far. It is always operating to reveal our true freedom and peace, even in the midst of opposing and obstructing tyranny and violence that would bring down sincere actions for economic, social, political, and religious reforms.
