The Love of Being Loving (Love and Devotion Book 1) Kindle Edition
The Love of Being Loving is about awakening and expanding our spiritual consciousness. It is also a personal journey. However, that which is elevating for a single consciousness is also elevating for human consciousness as a whole. There are no secrets. God withholds nothing. Yet, it is only by our sincere searching, the evolutionary stage we have reached, and the grace of God that we come into contact with spiritual pathways and teachers that are right for us at any particular time.
This book is based on the metaphysical teachings of two spiritual paths and their corresponding founders: Dr Thomas Hora of Metapsychiatry and Mary Baker Eddy of Christian Science. The ideas expressed have a universal quality. Spiritual principles, if true, are true for everyone. That is the yardstick that validates their authenticity. Authentic spiritual ideas also have the universal power to heal. Healing is the building block of both individual and collective spiritual evolution.
This edition of The Love of Being Loving has many quotes from Thomas Hora and Mary Baker Eddy and also a few other relevant teachers. The quotes lived with me for the years I studied both spiritual disciplines and were foundational to my learning. They are at the end of each chapter.
Love and Devotion is a four-book nonfiction series. A grand and magnificent truth radiates from within all of life and each of us. May you discover in your heart a sweet lightness, the luminescent glow of God’s beauty, and a genuine appreciation for the wonderful gift of life which glows unmarred through every human error. We are loved by the Divine, loved into existence. That, in itself, is enough to reassure each one of us of our inestimable worth.

Whether seekers have ever heard of Metapsychiatry or not, or are familiar with the work of the enlightened consciousness of its founder, Thomas Hora, MD, or know anything much about Christian Science and its revered founder, Mary Baker Eddy, is not a prerequisite for reading this interesting presentation of some of the central ideas in each of the teachings. Goddard's exploration of the overall orientation of Metapsychiatry and Christian Science is informative, well organized and arranged, clear and simple, not dense or complicated, and in an easy and accessible style; it emanates a gentle and comforting tone, reflecting the genuine "love of being loving" quality of the consciousness of its author. The quotations Goddard has chosen from the founders of both teachings (or, in the case of CS, also from its main proponents) are memorable and inspiring, relevant to the content, and nicely highlighted in the format in which she offers them.
A tendency of the author to personalize the message, cite personal experiences, and display personal relationships with her teachers sometimes detracts, at least this reader, from the purity of the material and its greater purpose: to communicate spiritual knowledge. Telling our "stories" is not always of interest to others and can even be distracting unless of a particularly remarkable nature. Admittedly, Goddard's Introduction establishes that the content of the book intends to reflect her "personal journey," but there are details that could easily have been omitted and would never have been missed.
The most valuable purpose of this book will be served as it succeeds in pointing receptive individuals to visit these teachings at their divine source and thereby to open them to vast and powerful energy-fields of thought. We must remember: "The finger is not the moon" (Zen). As "The Love of Being Loving" is discovered by seekers, it has the potential to lead them to realize a deeper wisdom and understanding in their lives, drawing them to drink directly from the Sacred Fountainhead of these authentic teachings that have transformed and healed the lives of so many. At that point, "The Love of Being Loving" will have become a double blessing in the world.
"The Love of Being Loving" brings forth this principle in both paths and, as well, shows it in action through the loving mentoring she received from two highly evolved metaphysicians, Dr. Hora himself and John Hargreaves, a kind of "surrogate" you might say for Mrs. Eddy who's no longer with us. His work I know well as an aid to deepening my understanding of Christian Science. Donna's book is a beautiful tribute to those two who demonstrated through their work the title's reference to our "being loving" in their mentoring of her and countless others, living the love.
So thanks to Donna for moving us forward another step in recognizing the "principles" we all need to follow to grow spiritually, regardless of the name on the path!
