Since 2006, MP has been collecting letters that John sent to those around the world who asked him for CS help. More than 1,000 letters, written by John over nearly four decades, were provided to us by the recipients.
After organizing the best, editing out personal references and creating the graphic files for printing, the two-volume paperback set is now shipping.
We believe readers will conclude that this collection represents some of John’s finest work. The letters are substantive, insightful and inspiring. They reflect his total dedication to the writings of Mrs. Eddy and are replete with citations to her work.
The eBook version includes both volumes.
Each time you visit this page you’ll see a random letter:
Dorset, 30 March 1995
Of course I will go on, and we remember that there is no way in which we can start out by trying to improve a human concept of anything. An idea is what is being. A concept is an opinion or a belief about what is being. As we let the idea occupy consciousness, so the concept fades out. This appears as human betterment because, really, it is the limited concept becoming less.
Man is defined in part as “…the conscious identity of being…” (S&H 475:16). This is how you live. Man, experience, effect, is the necessary way in which Cause is aware of its identity. Effect is as necessary to cause as cause is to effect. That is why “Principle and its idea is one…” (S&H 465:17). In this One, there is no human concept. Love could not identify itself as anything less than loveliness and so, fearlessness.
Remember, too, that it is not a question of a mortal seeing its true identity; but always of Truth identifying itself as eternal good, and asserting itself over the belief that there is any other mind or state of being.
