I am on a continuing quest to learn more about joy. It seems to me to be an existential quest. Over the years I have written articles and blog posts about this topic. This year I am honoured to have been published in The Christian Science Journal, a magazine that is being published each month since 1883.
The article begins like this:
Everywhere you look, all of creation is individual, distinct, with a specific identity and purpose. This alone gives one much food for thought and much to demonstrate in our own lives. This individuality comes from what Christian Science calls the divine Mind—the source of all creation, which consists of God’s spiritual ideas. Since Mind is individual—one God—it is fascinating to realize that Mind, and Mind alone, knows all there is to know about every individuality. Everything spiritual is individual, and individuality is God’s way of expressing His infinite uniqueness. Each idea has a specific, God-directed, God-inspired, God-empowered purpose and reason for being—a specific design, outline, form, color. To create, maintain, and preserve individuality is the prerogative and domain of divine Mind. Each of us, as God’s image, is complete and expresses individuality in the highest sense of the word.
