Quick insight to share….
I was leaving the office early, just a few days after Christmas. It was my son’s birthday and I had some things to finish up before having friends and family over to celebrate. My computer was being upgraded, and I couldn’t really work without a CPU on my desk. I am an architectural designer for a large firm, here, in Portland.
I felt especially gleeful. I exuded enthusiasm as I said goodbye to coworkers and receptionists. Then, it hit me.
Enthusiasm doesn’t know age!
These office friends were seeing ME as enthusiastic, happy. And, that’s what they responded to… not to my size or shape, or how slow I walked, but just to the enthusiasm. I walked out with enthusiasm, at a normal, pace.
We are ‘made of qualities’, really.
The same rule could be said of joy, honesty, loyalty, hope, confidence, caring,… none of these know age. Whether three years old or three-times-thirty– If we ‘live out’ of these qualities there really is nothing for age to attach to. We are ageless. We are full and overflowing of God.
I learned this as a little girl from my parents, from my wonderful Christian Science Sunday School teachers ((forever grateful)) and again, in Christian Science Class Instruction… this time, an Angel whispered in my ear.
“Enthusiasm does not know age”.
Play with it some:
Joy does not know age. Courage does not know age. Strength does not know age….
Joy does not ‘know’ pain. Courage does not know fear. Strength does not know lack. Love does not know disease….
The permutations of this concept are infinite, are Life itself.
God IS good… in Him, we live and move and have our being. “Become conscious for a single moment that Life and intelligence are purely spiritual, —neither in nor of matter, — and the body will then utter no complaints.” Mary Baker Eddy, Science and Health with Key to the Scripture.
Love to you right now.
