Practice Not Profession, by Margaret Laird

$19.95

Margaret Laird includes a quotation in her 1981 Foreword to Practice Not Profession alluding to “philosophy as experience rooted in consciousness” acting as a “life-giving force” that “nourishes” mankind. By 1981, Laird had gained deep insights into the Life-force Mind/Consciousness, as it is known in metaphysics, since she had been practicing that science for nearly 70 years, as well as teaching and writing on the topic for some 50 years, first as part of the Christian Science movement and, after 1948, independently with an international following. In this booklet she shares wonderful, original ideas on what such practice involves and what it ceaselessly reveals about the nature of Being. She also revisits and reflects on some of the core teachings of Mary Baker Eddy, as well as addressing why Laird found Eddy’s presentation of metaphysics in the context of Christian theology misleading and limiting in our day, though perhaps necessary in Eddy’s era. Laird also illustrates many facets of metaphysical practice, including how a metaphysician might respond to a diagnosis of “terminal cancer” and how Science translates forms and phenomena into ideas. She assures us that, when we recognize “Love is the Life-Principle functioning in human thought and stamping every act with the seal of Truth,” we will see that “the incidents of daily life are not problems to be solved, but joy and well being to be experienced.”
