The law of attraction

The Bulletin Board is for gratitude for Christian Science and the Church, as well as timely excerpts from the Bible, the works of Mrs. Eddy, and the early workers that help and encourage. We are very grateful for all posts that conform to these guidelines, but will edit or remove anything that the Practitioners feel is not in complete accord with pure Christian Science or in any way disrespectful of it.

We also ask that you keep your postings as concise as possible. If you quote the Bible, please use The King James Version, as this is what Mrs. Eddy used. Thank you!

    In our lesson this week, the reference from Science and Health page 102 says “There is but one real attraction, that of Spirit.The pointing of the needle to the pole symbolizes this all-embracing power or the attraction of God, divine Mind.” This quote reminds me of another example of this law of attraction from Leaves Of Healing by Peter V.Ross where he says “At this point my lead pencil demands a hearing. It reminds me that it is built of particles so far apart that were my vision keen enough the pencil would look more porous than a sieve. Not one atom touches its neighbors. The law of attraction holds them in their respective orbits. No man on earth is strong enough to pull the pencil in two — strong enough to separate the atoms from one another. Why are they so clannish? Because they like one another. Here shines forth, not the strength of materials, for matter is a phantom, but the power of adoration.

    How silent is the atom in its ceaseless activity. The patriot is silent. Never does he boast of his patriotism. It is so much a part of him that he scarcely knows he has it. So of one who is strong in love. The emotion is his very self. It seldom occurs to him to announce it.

    Here we have a hint of the heart of spiritual or metaphysical healing. It is more than a purely intellectual process. It has, at its highest, the warmth and ardor of devotion. It is the mood wherein evil is unthinkable and unrecognizable, wherein good is the natural and exclusive order, the all and the only.” Thank you lesson writers.
