It’s a Trip and I Am on for the Ride

posted by Cheryl Petersen

Though I read in 21st Century Science and Health, that there is no birth, maturity, decay, and death in Science…there is birth, maturity, decay, and death to deal with in my current experience. To think otherwise is delusional, at least for now, when I still feet planted on earth.

Therefore, I can appreciate reading logical analyses that clearly point out every company goes through phases. There is a startup, hyper growth, maturity, decline, and here is where I pay attention, either rebirth or death.

The enterprise to advance divine Science and its spiritual healing method resulted in a book written in the 19th century by Mary Baker Eddy. Its readership mapped out the quintessential graph of birth, growth, maturity, and decline during the 20th century.

For the enterprise to achieve rebirth, the vision of reinvention needs to take hold. The reinvention however must stay in line with the initial intent. Before the turn of the 21st century, and for my own advancement in divine Science, I began revising Eddy’s book, Science and Health and found a rebirth. I eventually published 21st Century Science and Health, not as a replacement but as the seed within itself. Its readership is growing.

To my pleasant and happy surprise, readers of 21st Century Science and Health carry a 21st century attitude of inclusiveness or universality. Religious, human, and civil rights fought for so bravely during the 20th century and with tremendous loss of life, are in the reader’s forethought. Although the ride can be rocky sometimes, divine Science is worth exploring.

A mask of compassion
In my observance of life, I’ve noticed a human trait that can get out of hand. We humor ourselves or others. I’m not talking about humor, hahaha. Wittiness and fun lay low when we want to humor someone. To humor someone is to indulge them, to give them slack, or comply with what they ar

Getting out of the rut
Moses lived a few hundred years after Joseph, the guy who saved the children of Israel from starvation by bringing them to Egypt. The move to the land of plenty was a glorious salvation. By time Moses was born, the children of Israel became lazy followers. They expected the leader, Pharaoh, to fe

Authentic baptism
Last week, I was asked by Chris to come watch his baptism. He decided he wanted to be baptized in the Susquehanna River. The day was lovely. The event was touching. Chris’ family was there and church friends. We all sang: Shall we gather at the river? By Robert Lowry, 1864 Shall we gather

Human intentions are secondary to the intentions of the Holy Spirit
Promises generally come with good intentions, however, neither the promise or the intentions have the power to fulfill themselves unless resolve, endurance, diligence, aplomb, grit, and common sense pulls through. Human promises are inert without the Holy Spirit. Promises fall out of our mouths a

Cats howling
Beautiful day yesterday. Had all the house windows open to feel the fresh air. I was cleaning the floor on my hands and knees and faintly heard howling angry cats. I drop my cloth, run to the back door, put on my rubber boots and dash down the driveway to find the source of the bawling. There
