Good is Primal, Evil Suppositional

good is primal, evil suppositional

“Let us start with the self-evident truth that five and five are ten. You cannot send it anywhere; it is already there. One cannot conceive of a time when five and five have not been or will not be ten. Therefore, the thought that five and five are ten is ever present, eternal, and indestructible. Because spiritual qualities, such as justice and goodness, exist and are ever present and eternal, the Mind, which created and includes these qualities must likewise be so. These self-evident truths confirm the ever-presence and eternality of Mind, God.

Mind is also good, One, and infinite. Intelligent Mind could not eternally consist of such opposites as good and evil. It would have to be one or the other. In algebra one cannot conceive of a minus twelve unless he knows what twelve is. Similarly, there would in belief be no evil or lie without something true about which to lie. Evil in every instance is only a negation or lie about some positive good which precedes it. Hence evil, the negative, is too late to be first or true. Consequently, good is primal, evil suppositional. Thus we see that Mind, or God, already proved to be ever present and eternal, must also be wholly good.”

I work to amplify good wherever I find it. I love color, texture, beauty, great ideas, nature, metaphor, deliciousness, genuine spirituality, and exploring new territory. I encourage authenticity, nurture creativity, champion sustainability, promote peace, and hope to foster a new renaissance where we all are free to be our most fulfilled, multifaceted, and terrific selves.

    My own world view has been strongly influenced by William Temple, late Archbishop of Canterbury. Temple
    writes in ” Nature, Man, and God ” , ” Religious people fear to contaminate the spiritual if it is too closely associated
    with the material. But unless it is recognized that spirit is most of all itself in exercising control over matter, the vaunted
    exaltation of spirit has its counterpart in bodily immorality. It is in the sacramental view of the universe ,both of its material
    and spiritual elements, that there is given hope of making human both politics and economics and making actual both
    faith and love. For my consciousness is not something within my organism ; my consciousness is itself the relation
    of that organism which I am to its environment. If our argument is reliable, we reach a conviction of the independence
    and supremacy of mind or spirit, not a conviction of the non-existence of matter. It is from an assertion of the reality of
    matter that we reach our conviction of the supremacy of spirit.
