“Nature is surely the glorified face of God. See the beauty about you and...see the manifestation of the infinite Mind.” ~Myrtle Fillmore, Unity Cofounder
I think of this quote from Myrtle Fillmore, co-founder of Unity, when I see the plant that is in the picture accompanying this narrative: “Nature is surely the glorified face of God. See the beauty about you and...see the manifestation of the infinite Mind.” In nature, we see so much beauty. The plant in the photo, which is thriving and growing, was bought from a local store in the section marked “sale plants.” It was sitting in a corner of the plant section--all shriveled up, covered with brown leaves, and ready for a new home. It really looked like the Charlie Brown Christmas tree—just sticks in a pot. We paid the reduced price for it, brought it home, repotted it, and watched it grow and mature and bloom. When I look at the plant I see the beauty of nature and the glorified face of God—expressing in nature. Today, I remind you to take a few moments and see the beauty that is all around you. See the rebirth that so often takes place in nature. And consider the rebirth that takes place in you with each new breath. Each time we inhale and exhale we have the opportunity to manifest great changes in our daily life. And as we change, and grow, and evolve, we help raise the consciousness of the universe. Isn’t that why we are on this earthly plane?
