Hold on to your Life. Let nothing rob you! Rise not by will- power, but rise in exaltation. God loves you, He will not let you fall. The heart is a symbol of Love, and to heal the weak heart we must heal the weak sense of Life and Love. God loves you and you love Him. You are right in the heart of divine Love. You throb with active Love, the animating Principle. Life is never disturbed, never in pain, but pulsates in eternal harmony. These fearing times are only chemicalizations, like a big storm which gathers and breaks, only to leave the atmosphere clear.   Mary Baker Eddy  (Oakes, Richard, Essays and Bible Lessons (Red Book), p.76-77)

UNSELFED LOVE – 12

It signifies that love, unselfed, knocks more loudly than ever before at the heart of humanity and that it finds admittance; that revelation, spiritual voice and vision, are less subordinate to material sight and sound and more apparent to reason; that evil flourishes less, invests less in trusts, loses capital, and is bought at par value; that the Christ-spirit will cleanse the earth of human gore; that civilization, peace between nations, and the brotherhood of man should be established, and justice plead not vainly in behalf of the sacred rights of individuals, peoples, and nations.  (Eddy, Mary Baker, The First Church of Christ, Scientist and Miscellany, p.265:3-13)

UNSELFED LOVE – 10

My Beloved Brethren:The chain of Christian unity, unbroken, stretches across the sea and rises upward to the realms of incorporeal Lifeeven to the glorious beatitudes of divine Love. Striving to be good, to do good, and to love our neighbor as ourself, man’s soul is safe; man emerges from mortality and receives his rights inalienable —the love of God and man. What holds us to the Christian life is the seven-fold shield of honesty, purity, and unselfed love. I need not say this to you, for you know the way in Christian Science.  (Eddy, Mary Baker, The First Church of Christ, Scientist and Miscellany, p.200:11)

UNSELFED LOVE – 9 

The praiseworthy success of this church, and its united efforts to build an edifice in which to worship the infinite, sprang from the temples erected first in the hearts of its membersthe unselfed love that builds without hands, eternal in the heaven of Spirit. God grant that this unity remain, and that you continue to build, rebuild, adorn, and fill these spiritual temples with grace, Truth, Life, and Love.  (Eddy, Mary Baker, The First Church of Christ, Scientist and Miscellany, p.195:24)

UNSELFED LOVE – 7

Beloved Brethren:It is conceded that our shadows follow us in the sunlight wherever we go; but I ask for more, even this: That this dear church shall be pursued by her substance, the immortal fruition of her unselfed love, and that her charity, which “seeketh not her own” but another’s good, shall reap richly the reward of goodness.  (Eddy, Mary Baker, The First Church of Christ, Scientist and Miscellany, p.19:18)

UNSELFED LOVE – 6

We cannot serve two masters. Do we love God supremely? Are we honest, just, faithful? Are we true to ourselves? “God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.” To abide in our unselfed better self is to be done forever with the sins of the flesh, the wrongs of human life, the tempter and temptation, the smile and deceit of damnation. When we have overcome sin in all its forms, men may revile us and despitefully use us, and we shall rejoice, “for great is [our] reward in heaven.”  (Eddy, Mary Baker, The First Church of Christ, Scientist and Miscellany, p.6:3)
