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.

The family cookbook
Mom kept our family of 7 fed with homemade meals. She typed out favorite recipes and put them in a green ring-binder notebook. The green binder was imprinted in my memory, whether I knew it or not. Mom died more than a decade ago, and when I recently visited my younger sister, I found the infamou

Balancing spiritual independence and group settings through leadership
The fastest growing “religion” in the West is the trend toward spiritual independence. Spiritually independent people are eager to explore the teachings, texts, and techniques of all religions and refuse to be limited to or labeled by one religion alone. The religion of Spiritual Independence
