July 31, 1903. The drunkenness produced by belief in wine is not to be compared with the drunkenness in thought – mental darkness. ‘Drunken, but not with wine.’ Isaiah 51::21.
Keep awake by loving more; love the idea of God and you will love God; you can only love God as far as you love His idea, and love will be expressed. What would you think of one who says he loves but never expresses it? Love does express itself; it heals; if you do not heal you have not enough love. Prove your love. Love is God and expresses itself. Mary Baker Eddy (Oakes, RIchard, Course In Divinity and General Collectanea, p.9)
