How may all thought be brought into harmony with divine law?

16. All thought may be brought into harmony with divine law — the law of absolute good — through the unifying power of divine love.

"Thought" as used here means all the desires, sense perceptions, feelings, concepts, beliefs, Ideas and associations of ideas, judgments, and opinions.

"Love, in Divine Mind, is the idea of universal unity. In expression, love is the power that joins and binds in divine harmony the universe and everything in it" (Christian Healing 130).

As the quality or idea that joins, love attracts all that is needed to bring about harmony between people and in all situations. Love, as a law itself, fulfills all the divine laws (Rom. 13:8), because love is the great harmonizer. If one's thoughts are confused, chaotic, unhappy, fearful, love can change them to harmony, happiness, faith, courage, and understanding. When one has sought for an answer to his prayers, or a way out of his problems, and he discovers the Truth, it is only the quality of love for Truth, for God, that can enable him to harmonize his thinking and feeling. If you want to be "transformed by the renewing of your mind," you will need love to give the strength and courage needed to make the change from limited, materialistic thinking to spiritual thinking.
