Your self is your only foe

And your last achievement is the sole measure

Of what your next accomplishment will be

With that, there should be no pressure.

Mary Baker Eddy on Marriage

51uvI8eispL._AC_UL320_SR226,320_

What is Mary Baker Eddy’s stand for marriage? She, who became a widow, loss a child and then, re-marry again to redeem her son and then, divorce her second husband for infidelity, I’ll bet she has a lot more to teach us. Let’s listen ~

[…]

“Marriage is the legal and moral provision for generation among human kind. Until the spiritual creation is discerned intact, is apprehended and understood, and His kingdom is come as in the vision of the Apocalypse, — where the corporeal sense of creation was cast out, and its spiritual sense was revealed from heaven, –marriage will continue, subject to such moral regulations as will secure increasing virtue.”

Here’s the thing that we must bear to our minds, marriage is only here on earth. In heaven or in eternity, the Bible said “there is no giving in to marriage.” This is one of the good reasons to consider when we cannot appreciate the marriage that we have now. Of course, you may also use this as a reason to find multiple marriage partners, however we still have to consider our moral obligation to one another.

Honestly, there are times when I neglect and disregard my husband but when I come to realize that our marriage will not going to last until eternity, this made me think of him differently. What if all we have is now? What if after death, I will not see this person again? Will I still recognize him there when the Bible proclaimed you will never remember anything there? What if all my memory of him will be blotted out? All that which is flesh will remain here… See Matthew 23:30 and Revelation 21:4

[…]

“Marriage should signify a union of hearts. Furthermore, the time cometh of which Jesus spake, when he declared that in the resurrection there should be no more marrying nor giving in marriage, but man would be as the angels. Then shall Soul rejoice in its own, in which passion has no part. Then white-robed purity will unite in one person masculine wisdom and feminine love, spiritual understanding and perpetual peace.”

[…]

“Until it is learned that God is the Father of all, marriage will continue. Let not mortals permit a disregard of law which might lead to a worse state of society than now exists. Honesty and virtue ensure the stability of the marriage covenant. Spirit will ultimately claim its own, — all the reality is, — and the voices of physical sense will be forever hushed.”

[…]

“If foundations of human affection are consistent with progress, they will be strong and enduring.”

Mary Baker Eddy is apparently against immorality and infidelity in marriage. To her, if we want to live healthy lives, we must also live in harmony with God which should reflect in our marriages.

Claude Bristol on How to Deal with Sickness

download (1)I have finished reading T.N.T. it Rocks the Earth, still by Claude M. Bristol author of The Magic of Believing within a week and I have found a great advice for us who’s afraid of sickness or who are already suffering from it.

A little introduction about the book, well you can read there in a direct to the point way the principles you will find perplexed in reading The Magic of Believing. Reading T.N.T. it Rocks the Earth first will give you a thorough idea about the latter that you should not read the first without reading the other. This book is more actionable! It gives a timeless principle for success that if followed by the word will give us all the power to conquer life’s challenges.

The book is best recommended to, from Claude’s Bristol own words:

[…]

“…Friends and acquaintances who are depressed, despondent, in ill health, worried over financial affairs, whose worlds are topsy turvy; dissatisfied with their lot in life – lost in the wilderness…”

Now for his advice to the ill:

[…]

“… To bring about the intensity of being, it’s necessary to be in good health. I do not claim that the power of will is cure-all to mend broken legs and all that sort of thing, but I do know that constant application of the theory herein advanced will aid a person in ill health. All of you have heard of Dr. Emil Coue, the Frenchman, who was in this country a few years ago, telling people they could cure themselves if they would adopt his plan.

His idea was that you should say to yourself – “Every day, in every way, I am getting better and better.” Just ponder over that for a minute.”

For those of us who are very fond of talking about our sickness and suffering just to get it out of our systems or to gain sympathy listen… this is a very important advice.

[…]

“We all know of people who are continually talking about backaches or some other kind of aches. They harp on them and the first thing they know, with that reiteration, the aches become realities. If you have such an ache or pain, there is no point to talking about your worries, your troubles. Do not talk about them. Do not think about them. Then they will not be in your own mind. It is the repetition that keeps them there. Shift your gears – reverse the process. Get away from the negative side and become an affirmative type – think affirmatively and the first thing you know your aches, worry and troubles will disappear.”
