VOICES OF SPRING – 4

     “The voice of the turtle is heard in our land.” The snow-bird that tarried through the storm, now chirps to the breeze; the cuckoo sounds her invisible lute, calling the feathered tribe back to their summer homes. Old robin, though stricken to the heart with winter’s snow, prophesies of fair earth and sunny skies. The brooklet sings melting murmurs to merry meadows; the leaves clap their hands, and the winds make melody through dark pine groves.  (Eddy, Mary Baker, Misc Writ 329:24-2)

VOICES OF SPRING – 3

     Spring passes over mountain and meadow, waking up the world; weaving the wavy grass, nursing the timid spray, stirring the soft breeze; rippling all nature in ceaseless flow, with “breath all odor and cheek all bloom.” Whatever else droops, spring is gay: her little feet trip lightly on, turning up the daisies, paddling the watercresses, rocking the oriole’s cradle; challenging the sedentary shadows to activity, and the streams to race for the sea. Her dainty fingers put the fur cap on pussy-willow, paint in pink the petals of arbutus, and sweep in soft strains her Orphean lyre. (Eddy, Mary Baker, Misc Writ 329:14-24)

VOICES OF SPRING – 1

     Mine is an obstinate penchant for nature in all her moods and forms, a satisfaction with whatever is hers. And what shall this be named, a weakness, or a — virtue?

     In spring, nature like a thrifty housewife sets the earth in order; and between taking up the white carpets and putting down the green ones, her various apartments are dismally dirty. (Eddy, Mary Baker, Misc Writ 329:1-9)

Now let me say – that mental malpractice must be met daily by all the students; met by your mental protest that breaks the so-called law of a lie, or you are liable to be affected by this lie all unconsciously. Dear ones, remember this. Our Master said, ‘Had the goodman of the house watched, his house would not have been broken open’. Mesmerism of many minds cannot hinder or stop Christian Science healing. Declare this every day. There is too much apathy of breaking the claim of mental malpractice. Be systematic about handling that claim every day. When you recognize the false laws, you must know that Truth can and does destroy them.     Mary Baker Eddy   (Oakes, Richard, Essays and Bible Lessons, (Red Book), p.70)

To know the what, when, and why of error, is to destroy error. Students love to talk about God, but they will not handle the serpent. They take up all sorts of arguments and claims, but they will not handle serpents. Yet the Scriptures tell us, ‘They shall handle serpents’. We don’t talk and uncover error enough. Error says, Don’t talk about me – talk about God.   Mary Baker Eddy   (Oakes, Richard, Essays and Bible Lessons, (Red Book), p.70)

We must all look to Principle and let the light dispel the darkness. There is no mortal mind that can influence or darken our consciousness. Love is almighty. Keep declaring that Principle, Life, Truth and Love are omnipotent. It is Love that uncovers and overcomes.     Mary Baker Eddy   (Oakes, Richard, Essays and Bible Lessons, (Red Book), p.70)

According to your steadfastness in excluding evil from thought after you have unmasked it, do you deal with it scientifically, and according to this same steadfastness are you blessed. Malicious animal magnetism stands ready to argue misunderstanding, and the only safe way in hours of trial is to obey the adage, ‘Silence is golden’. If anyone had wronged you they cannot hide it from wisdom.   Mary Baker Eddy    (Oakes, Richard, Essays and Bible Lessons (Red Book), p.70)
