Resurrecting and ascending

posted by Cheryl Petersen

From 21st Century Science and Health:

The carnal human mentality, misnamed mind, is mortal. In his resurrection and ascension, Jesus showed that a mortal creature is not our real essence. If it were not for the indissoluble immortal connection between God and spiritual identity, people would be annihilated. In divine Science, mortality disappears in the presence of reality.



Good dissolves bad

walk in rainSometimes, I just feel bad.

Bad about myself, or life, or my situation.

I can figure out why, for example, it’s because of hormones. But giving it a name doesn’t get rid of the bad feeling.

Science and religion both discuss the value of positive thinking and it has proven to be a good start in getting rid of bad feelings.

Working with attitudes also pushes me to realize that substance really is mind. Not the human mind, that’s only temporal, but divine Mind, God. And, many prophets have shown the value of having the Mind of God, Love. I too have felt one with Mind and the bad feelings dissolve.


From 21st Century Science and Health, “The Christian Scientist, understanding that all is Mind, commences with mental causation, the truth of being, to destroy the error. This remedy has the power to correct positively, reaching to every part of the human system. According to Scripture, it searches the “joints and marrow,”[1] and restores the healthy functions of the body.

Keeping mercy

biblesDeut. 7:9

Know therefore that the Lord your God is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and steadfast love with those who love him and keep his commandments, to a thousand generations. (English Standard Version)

Know now then that the Lord your God is the only true God! He is the faithful God, who keeps the covenant and proves loyal to everyone who loves him and keeps his commands—even to the thousandth generation! (Common English Bible)


Know therefore that the Lord thy God, he is God, the faithful God, which keepeth covenant and mercy with them that love him and keep his commandments to a thousand generations; (King James Version)

So know that the Lord your God is God. He is the faithful God. He will keep his agreement of love for a thousand lifetimes. He does this for people who love him and obey his commands. (International Children’s Bible)



Fishing Salmon River

Once experts realized genes aren’t stable and can mutate, the human mind took off in multiple directions, some not so good.

Genetically modified organisms (GMO’s) have become popular, although not exactly admired.

Many of the plants and trees we grow have been forced selected. For example, I remember taking buds from trees that produced red apples early in the season. The buds were grafted into rootstocks so all the trees would produce redder apples.

I’m listening to a book by Paul Greenberg, Four Fish. He tells about his journey of examining salmon, sea bass, cod, and tuna. Greenberg tells about how the salmon in the Salmon River, located in Oswego County, New York, contained toxic levels of pollution in the past. Then he tells about how he caught a huge normal salmon later in life and was thankful to see the salmon naturally reverted back to being a true wild salmon, strong and healthy. It took a few generations but reversal back to normal was experienced.


It reminds me of the apple trees. After half a dozen years, some of the branches in the trees would revert back to the mother plant, with apples that didn’t get red very early in the season.

Nature is amazing. We can pray for normalcy. Genes can’t mutate to something abnormal with no recourse to normalcy because normalcy is the standard.

Nature mimics this spiritual truth in that light will always replace darkness.

From 21st Century Science and Health, “The redeeming power is not in a cell, a physical force, chemicals, or human mind. Matter/energy is a materialization of mortal mind. The process of mortal mind is such that it manifests itself but is eventually urged to its furthest limits, only to return to its original stance. Hybrid plants are a good illustration. A hybrid pushed out of its boundaries, will revert back to the parent plant. Matter will always surrender its claims when the perfect and eternal Mind is understood.”
