Spirit Blesses Your Experience
by John W. Doorly
Don’t believe for one moment that when you begin to seek the spiritual, you will lose anything that is worth having. All you will ever lose will be a whole lot of hell,—a whole lot of sin, a whole lot of disease, a whole lot of materiality, fear of death, and so on. But the spiritual, as you gain it, will give you everything in human experience that is worth having, and in a more beautiful way than you’ve ever had it before. Everything in the way of right relationships, friendship, tenderness, compassion, and so on, it will bring to you in more abundant measure. Mrs. Eddy says, “Spirit duly feeds and clothes every object, as it appears in the line of spiritual creation, thus tenderly expressing the fatherhood and motherhood of God.” (S&H p. 507) So, as you seek the things of Spirit, Spirit will bless everything in your experience. Your home, your business, your relationships, all things in your human experience will become better, because on a more spiritual basis, and moreover they will be safer, because they will be found in Soul.
So never be afraid that the spiritual is going to take away from you anything that is worth having. It is going to give you everything: it is going to give you the right idea of God and the right idea of man.
