Everyday Spirituality

From 21st Century Science and Health, an exegesis of Genesis 1: 11, in honor of springtime gardening!

Genesis 1:11. Then God said, “Let the land produce vegetation: seed-bearing plants and trees on the land that bear fruit with seed in it, according to their various kinds.” And it was so.

The universe of Spirit reflects the powerful creativity of the divine Principle, or Life, which reproduces the multitudinous forms of Mind and governs the increase of the multifaceted idea of spiritual being. The tree and vegetation do not yield fruit because of any propagating power of their own, but because they reflect the Mind which includes all. A material world implies a human mind and person as creator. The scientific divine creation declares immortal Mind and the universe created by God.

Infinite Mind creates and governs all, from the mental molecule to infinity. This divine Principle of all expresses Science and art throughout Spirit’s entire work including the immortality of spiritual being and the universe. Creation is always appearing, and must always continue to appear from the nature of its inexhaustible source. Mortal sense inverts this appearing and calls ideas material. Thus misinterpreted, the divine idea seems to fall to a level of human or material belief, called mortal human being. The seed is in itself, only as the divine Mind is All and reproduces all—as Mind is the multiplier, and Mind’s infinite idea, person and the universe, is the result. The only intelligence or substance of a thought, a seed, or a flower is God, the creator of it. Mind is the Soul of all. Mind is Life, Truth, and Love which governs all.
