The human mind is besotted with hunger over many issues. Hunger for fame, self-actualization, sensual gratification, peace of mind, company and so forth.
The fact that hunger seems to be the leitmotiv of the human mind should alert us to the obvious truth that as long as the sense of hunger persists, the Divine Mind which is absent of hunger, because it knows only completeness and contentment, cannot be evidenced. Hunger shuts out the Divine sense because it is the antipode of the Divine Mind.
Last week the above quote arrived in my mailbox from Christian Science Practitioner Anthony Whitehouse. Anthony is based in Switzerland. I thought it would be good to explore and clarify what he wrote.
It’s true. The so-called human mind is always hungry for something. Its constant cry is, “I want, I need, and I don’t have.” This mind functions in the fiction of lack and limitation.
You cannot stop the incessant yearning of the human mind, and you certainly cannot overcome it. But you can realize its nothingness. You can realize this supposititious mind is not your Mind, nor is it the Mind of anyone.
The human mind is pure illusion. Its perceived emptiness and neediness are also illusions. All of it is nothing – no thing at all.
God, the One and only Mind, is “your” Mind, and it functions in and as this Truth: I have All because I AM All.
Every time you seem to hunger for anything, that hunger signifies (as you have already guessed) the Presence of fulfillment – not lack.
