How can we do a better job of showing you our love? Or at least improving our blog! Let us know…

What would happen if you asked your nearest and dearest what you could do to show them your love?  A quote from Vietnamese Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh prompted a mother to try this out for a month with some interesting results, recorded in her article “The Love Experiment: One Question That Changes Everything” at Wholeliving.com.

The author’s conclusion: “I spend the month happier than I’ve been in a long time: I’m sleeping better without my midnight bouts of regret and resolve; the kids are more relaxed; [husband] Michael whistles in the shower; the weather even seems sunnier — which may be a metaphor, or an actual unrelated climatological phenomenon.”

Well, we can’t exactly promise to do that for all our readers…but I would love to know how you feel this blog might serve you better.

The practice of Christian Science healing might be summarised as the Science and art of asking God how you can show your nearest and dearest His/Her love…coupled with an openness of heart and mind to constantly expand the sense of who constitutes your nearest and dearest beyond the borders of family, denomination, nationality, race.  Please share any ideas you have for topics that you would like to see covered that would make it clearer to you, or to those you feel might appreciate knowing, the credibility and value of the spiritual method of healing articulated in Christian Science.

“Whatever holds human thought in line with unselfed love, receives directly the divine power.” (Mary Baker Eddy)

    It seems to me you’ve achieved an excellent balance of not being afraid to listen to others’ experiences and to learn from what they have to say, while keeping your own healing focus in the conversation. You have the graciousness to not “use” someone’s sincere essay or blog merely as a means to make your own point. You treat those you mention and link to with respect, as fellow travelers worthy of being heard.
    Your love for mankind comes through loud and clear.
