Join us for the best summer yet!

Click here and scroll down to the Listen link to hear my 14-min. account of  “wonderful works of God” referred to below (Golden Text/Job 37:14)

Wonderful works show 6 “GEMs” of the “REALITY” of YOUR IDENTITY and what each one means to you & all!
[A”CORRECTIVE-LEN” GEM shines a focus on each of 6 sections per THEME citation S5/
Science & Health 335:27-28:
“Reality is (1st section ) spiritual, (2nd) harmonious, (3rd) immutable, (4th) immortal, (5th) divine, (6th) eternal.”]


SPIRITUAL: Section 1 – Ask yourself: what does seeing the reality of my own & everyone’s identity as SPIRITUAL mean to me & all?

I’ll never forget how glimpsing and confidently accepting my reality as SPIRITUAL gave me expansive, new vistas and wonderful demonstrations that were totally impossible to attain as long as I accepted myself as a merely-material, suffering mortal. Click here to read more about two back-to-back demonstrations that occurred when I glimpsed and wholeheartedly accepted the fact that right NOW in reality I was COMPLETELY SPIRITUAL and therefore perfect! I will always cherish these“glorious glimpses” (1901, p. 9:6-9)  of my spiritual reality that gave me light (& a corrective len) to clearly see  “spiritual proof of the universe in Christian Science.”  The rest of this citation S3 reminded of this long-ago healing of appendicitis and of the result of my being dumanly way under-prepared for a final exam: “Spiritual understanding unfolds Mind … This understanding is not intellectual, is not the result of scholarly attainments; it is the reality of all things brought to light.” (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, 505:22–28) See an updated print version of my December 2020 audio above at:  (https://cedarscamps.org/inspiration/article/11117/ )
“Spirit” & spiritual” Bible
references in Section 1 feature: “Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God…… which the Holy Ghost teacheth, comparing spiritual things with spiritual.” (cit. B3/1st Cor. 2:13)
“Spirit” and “spiritual” Science & Health citations include: 12 more mentions of these words, before enumerating all six gems of reality that it’s up to us to glimpse, mine and accept as your own to share with all! “Reality is (1ST s.) spiritual, (2nd) harmonious, (3rd) immutable, (4th) immortal, (5th) divine, (6th) eternal.” (citation S5/335:27-28)


HARMONIOUS: Section 2 – what does seeing the reality of my own & everyone’s identity as HARMONIOUS mean to me & all?
Scroll down & click on a DOWNLOAD to see references and their demonstrations of winning without a fight as given in a workshop on “Harmony in the Workplace” by me and our son, Dr. Barry Huff, at a 2019 Christian Science Nursing Network conference here at CedarS  Camps.


Harmonious Bible references: Harmony is restored and God hastens to help Hezekiah (cit. B7/2nd Kings 201-19) turns to God along with “all the ends of the world (that) shall remember and turn unto the Lord…” (cit. B4/Ps. 22

Harmonious Science & Health references include:  “All reality is in God and His creation, harmonious and eternal.” (cit. S6/472:24-26); “Mentally insist that harmony is the fact…”  (cit. S7/23);  “It is unwise to doubt if reality is in perfect harmony with God…” (cit. S9/130:9); and MORE!


IMMUTABLE: Section 3 – Ask yourself: what does seeing the reality of my identity as IMMUTABLE mean to me/the world?

To me, Moses (who I’ve portrayed hundreds of times in CedarS Bible Lands Park) demonstrates very well the quality of IMMUTABILITY.  From the unchanged Ten Commandments he received from God, to his being 120 years old “and… his eye was not dim, nor his natural force abated.”
(Deuteronomy 34:7)
Going along with a recent Bible Lesson that took place at the immutable burning bush which burned and yet was not consumed, below is a link to a YouTube video. I enlisted a dear friend, Ken Pratt, to narrate it and take pictures late one night in CedarS Ballwin office, to use the next day in Sunday School… I love that our God is always the Great I AM, not an I was God seen in an “I was” burning bush!  (Exodus 3:14, 15 & SH 587:5)

Immutable Bible references: “I am the Lord, I change not; therefore ye … are not consumed.” (Malachi 3:6) ; “… promise the immutability of his counsel…”  (cit. B9/Heb. 6:17); “Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to-day, and for ever.”  (cit. B10/Heb. 13:8); Jesus healing the blind man by having him wash off every trace of the dust man –see a helpful video link and Cobbey Crisler’s inspiring insights at SEE GEMs of REALITY SPARKLE when EVERY TRACE of a DUST MAN is WASHED-OFF! – CedarS Camps 

Immutable Science & Health references include 6 uses of  “immutable” or “mutable.”

Below is the final sentence in this section (one of my  favorites) that not only shows how a bird can come “flight-ready,” but also shows how Mary Baker Eddy could be aware of that before such a bird had even been discovered! Click here to see more about this species of Australian Brush Turkey and a couple more examples of how remarkably ahead of her time Mary Baker Eddy was.
“Fixing your gaze on the realities supernal, you will rise to the spiritual consciousness of being, even as the bird which has burst from the egg and preens its wings for a skyward flight” (S17/261:27).
 


IMMORTAL: Section 4 – Ask yourself: what does seeing the reality of my identity as IMMORTAL mean to me/the world?
Immortal Bible
references:  Immortality is demonstrated when Peter raised Tabitha from the dead (cit. B14/Acts 9:36-42). I have glimpsed extraordinary examples of two, prayed-over, dead animals that were raised from the dead.  And, when that wasn’t demonstrated with human dear ones that seemed to pass on, I have found great comfort in this sentence by Mary Baker Eddy:   “The encumbering mortal molecules, called man (that person’s name), vanish as a dream; but man (that person’s name) born of the great Forever, lives on, God-crowned and blest.”  (Miscellaneous Writings 1883–1896, p. 205:28 with that person’s name added)

There’s a helpful graphic called “Love Lives On!” in the DOWNLOADS section below with a comforting message for those who have had loved ones “change their address” (as my mom used to say).
 

Immortal Science & Health references include inspirations about never seeing death and 11 mentions of immortal, mortal, death or dying. 


DIVINE: Section 5 – Ask yourself: what does seeing the reality of my identity as DIVINE mean to me & to the world?
Divine Bible
references include the way we feel in witnessing “manywonderful works” (cit. cit. B17/Psalm 40:5) of “divine power” (cit. 16/2nd Peter 1:3) that make us “Rejoice evermore.” (cit. B15/1st Thes. 5:16) We always feel joyous when we glimpse that we are divine beings making demonstrations of divine power that is ours to see here and now in our human experience. 

DIVINE Science & Health references include 11 great amplifications of human, divine, divinity…


ETERNAL: Section 6 – Ask yourself: what does seeing the reality of my identity as ETERNAL mean to me & the world?
Eternal Bible
references: How comforting that “The eternal God is thy refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms” (cit. B18/Deut. 33:27) — and that, although those “everlasting arms” may be “invisible things… (they) are clearly seen, … by the things that are made, even  his eternal power and Godhead.”(cit. B21/Romans 1:20)

Eternal Science & Health citations: We have five deep amplifications of the word eternal in all four Science and Health citations. These include “Eternal things (verities)” (cit. 29/337:24) that “remain unchanged in … eternal history” (cit. S31/471:5).  The lesson ends with this one-liner summary of Reality: “All the real is eternal.” (cit. S32/353:16 (only)
