VOICES OF SPRING – 8

     With each returning year, higher joys, holier aims, a purer peace and diviner energy, should freshen the fragrance of being. Nature’s first and last lessons teach man to be kind, and even pride should sanction what our natures need. Popularity, — what is it? A mere mendicant that boasts and begs, and God denies charity.  (Eddy, Mary Baker, Misc Writ 330:21-27)

VOICES OF SPRING – 7

     The alders bend over the streams to shake out their tresses in the water-mirrors; let mortals bow before the creator, and, looking through Love’s transparency, behold man in God’s own image and likeness, arranging in the beauty of holiness each budding thought. It is good to talk with our past hours, and learn what report they bear, and how they might have reported more spiritual growth.  (Eddy, Mary Baker, Misc Writ 330:14-21)

VOICES OF SPRING – 6

     And man, more friendly, should call his race as gently to the springtide of Christ’s dear love. St. Paul wrote, “Rejoice in the Lord always.” And why not, since man’s possibilities are infinite, bliss is eternal, and the consciousness thereof is here and now?  (Eddy, Mary Baker, Misc Writ 330:9-13)

VOICES OF SPRING – 5

     What is the anthem of human life?

     Has love ceased to moan over the new-made grave, and, looking upward, does it patiently pray for the perpetual springtide wherein no arrow wounds the dove? Human hope and faith should join in nature’s grand harmony, and, if on minor key, make music in the heart.  (Eddy, Mary Baker, Misc Writ 330:3-8)

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)

WATCH – Remember that the power to heal is gained through peace,
wisdom, love, dominion over ourselves, and good will toward men.
You possess these graces of Spirit, or Christ power, only by loving
God, good, supremely. After this cometh the recognition of but one
Mind, which enables you to know there is no power or presence that
can resist good, or can prevent your prayers being effectual. While
you remain in this attitude of mind you are obedient to the Principle
of your being, and naught can hinder your healing the sick and the
sinner.  Mary Baker Eddy   (Oakes, Richard, Course In Divinity and General Collectanea, p.49)
