About TayTruth

I love Truth. I've always loved Truth, God. The goal here, is to express Truth in the most accurate, authentic way possible. This blog is a work in progress. The expression of Truth grows more absolute in proportion to one's understanding. The understanding of Truth expressed here has been shaped mainly by a life-long study of the Bible and the works of Mary Baker Eddy, the discoverer and founder of Christian Science. But, as a seeker of Truth, any representation of the Truth that enlightens understanding has been welcome, and there are far too many to enumerate. Gratitude is the order of the day, when thinking of all who have spoken the Truth in whatever form.

Follow – Through

I started to pray: I am God’s idea. God’s idea is complete grace, power, wholeness, substance, light, flow, stamina, flexibility, follow through… when I got to that in my thought, I jumped to the idea that to follow through on … Continue reading

David and Goliath – Exact Aim

You know the way the story of David and Goliath (I Sam: 17) is about David using what he knows (that God is all-powerful) and has practiced (the sling shot instead of the armor) and feeling confident that what he’s … Continue reading

You Can Rest

While praying with someone yesterday, this great image came to thought… When we fall into God’s arms, trust in His care, we can rest on the bed of Spirit – fall into that divine, angel-feather softness – and let go … Continue reading

A Divine Bernoulli Effect

The simple action of moving forward in life, of making little decisions – little choices – is enough for the divine Bernoulli effect to operate in our lives. The Christ, “the divine influence, ever-present in human consciousness,”* operates to uplift … Continue reading

River of Emotion

We all have a river of emotions which runs through our life. But we don’t have to live our lives in that river! We can recognize that the river is there, notice it, watch its current and speed, its calm … Continue reading

Divine Tapestry

When weaving, many threads interlace to make the tapestry. If we want to change the color or pattern, we drop a thread, pick up another, and change the pattern. In life, it’s just as easy to drop a thread. When … Continue reading

Fear Has No Power

Fear is only messing with our perception, not with what’s actually going on. Fear messes with our perception of things and tries to get us to believe a false picture of what’s going on. Then it achieves what it wants … Continue reading

Page Numbers

I was flying east and had a rare chance to read a novel – uninterrupted. Deep in the story, I had a flash of insight. The page number had nothing to do with the action in the story I had … Continue reading

Face Plant

So… I was running with the dog in the dark. It was 5:00am. And mid-stride, my toe caught the lip of the sidewalk – smack – face-plant! Well almost. I put my hands out instinctively and landed with full force … Continue reading

It Needs a Host – Don’t Give it One

Negative thoughts don’t live unless we give them a person or a thing to live on. If we identify a person with a negative thought, we’ve just given life to a negative that can’t live on its own. Why would … Continue reading

Handout or Hand up

Remember in the Bible in Acts 3 when Peter and John are going into the temple and there’s a lame man at the gate who asks them for alms? Remember Peter’s response? [I’ve always loved this passage and the other … Continue reading

Lock Steps

The Christ is kind of like the locks of a canal. It meets us where we are and adjusts our level before we go forward. If we need humility or confidence, compassion or strength, the Christ communicates our true nature … Continue reading

Barge or Ocean Liner

It’s the difference between a sleek-prow’d ocean liner and a square-bow’d barge – being Ego-centric and being ego-centric. Having your own ego or genuinely reflecting God – the one Ego. God, Ego is All. So when we understand that we … Continue reading

Ashtray Analogy

I’ve never been a smoker. So, whenever I ate out (when they used to allow smoking in restaurants), there would be an unused ashtray on the table. And when the conversation turned toward God, which it invariably would, it was … Continue reading

Positive Reset

You know the way some people are naturally positive and happy – the way some people bounce back easily from disappointments or challenges? Their reset is positive. Without prompting, they’re just happy about life, about themselves – they feel good. … Continue reading

No Dark Photon

When you turn on a light in a dark room, you won’t see a powerful chunk of blackness fighting off the light in the middle of the room – the darkness can’t decide it’s going to stay there. Why? Because … Continue reading

Toothbrush

Though I’d always done it the same way, it was only a few years ago that I finally noticed how hard I pushed the toothbrush against my teeth when I brushed – I guess it was a habit – I’d … Continue reading

Live with it?

If you’ve got a problem, and you try to live with it – that’s what you’ll end up doing – living with it! Why put up with living with a problem? When we mentally refuse to identify ourselves with the … Continue reading

I Am

I am God knowing me not a human, being me with thoughts and feelings struggling to believe in something better. I am God knowing me not a human being, me an ego with self-image and fears, climbing the tree of … Continue reading

The angel said, “Go to Cox Cottage.”

It was 2AM and I was tired. I’d finally finished studying, and just wanted to go to bed. But, as I left the School of Government building and headed for the dorm, I heard a calm, clear voice say, “Go … Continue reading

In a Hole

When our friend is in a hole and we see them down there and want to help them – perhaps tell them how to get out, or throw a rope down, or tell them we’ll go get a ladder, or … Continue reading

Heater Dust

You know when you turn your heater on for the first time each winter? When it smells? When all the dust from the previous months has to burn off before the smell goes away? It’s kind of like what happens … Continue reading

Day by Day

“Day by day the manna fell.” There’s a reason for that, people! You wouldn’t want all the manna you’d need for the next 40 years of wandering in the wilderness to fall all at once. It would weigh a ton. … Continue reading

Dwell in Understanding

If the good that heals and comforts and reforms is in Science – in the understanding that God’s Law reigns supreme – then the more we dwell in that understanding, the more we’ll see healing and comfort and reform.

At the Center

The closer we get to our center (The Kingdom of Heaven is within you) – the place where we’re most in line with who God sees us to be – most in line with our perfect self (God made man … Continue reading

Choose Again

When we “turn the other cheek,” we’re not turning back to get hit again, we’re turning back to give ourselves another opportunity to see – really see – who’s before us. Do we see an aggressor? Then we’re seeing ourselves … Continue reading

You’re Surrounded

Air is all around us. Move your arm through the air. See? You can’t take your arm out of the air. (For the purpose of this, we’re not talking about a vacuum.) Think of it this way, metaphorically speaking, God … Continue reading

Gravity is working!

If you ever doubt whether God is in control, look around! Is there anything floating around the room? Are you 6 inches off the ground? No? Well, then gravity is working at the moment. And gravity is a pretty cool … Continue reading

Divine Design

Standing in the pouring rain, water streaming down my face, I was struck by the amazing Divine design of our faces. Water splits at our nose leaving a pocket of air to breathe. When things are falling fast around us … Continue reading

You can’t make a plant grow by pouring acid on it.

Plants grow when they’re nurtured. They grow when they’re given pure water and sunlight. So do people. No matter how difficult someone is being, the only fix is to love them more. The only way you’ll see a better person … Continue reading
