After scanning through this article this morning: How Syria Came to This (warning! a heavy trip), after considering the virtual civil war in the US, etc., what can we do about it?! More often than not governments exacerbate the problem, and religions? forget about it!
However, the answer to all this division and hatred is plain - IN SCIENCE, divine Science, that is. Why do we refer to it as Science? Because it is incontravertible, utterly provable. Furthermore, there is no alternative. It is the way it is:
To love our neighbor as ourselves without recognizing there is one infinite God, good, does not cut it. This would ignore the principle underlying loving our neighbor as ourselves, resulting in a humanistic view with limitations, certainly not capable of embracing the world! The following from Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures (S&H) is truly mind-expanding!:
Mind is God. The exterminator of error
is the great truth that God, good, is the only Mind, and
that the supposititious opposite of infinite Mind
— called devil or evil — is not Mind, is not
Truth, but error, without intelligence or reality. There
can be but one Mind, because there is but one God; and
if mortals claimed no other Mind and accepted no other,
sin would be unknown. We can have but one Mind, if
that one is infinite. We bury the sense of infinitude,
when we admit that, although God is infinite, evil has a
place in this infinity, for evil can have no place, where all
space is filled with God.
The individual who seeks to embrace this Truth, to utilize it in daily interaction and in so doing, loving his neighbor as himself, is doing much.
