And thou shalt swear,The lord liveth, in truth, in judgment; and in righteousness; and the nations shall bless themselves in him,and in him shall they glory. Jeremiah 4:2 so the external or material world, the physical realm,is, in the ultimate sense,nothing but an extension of one's mind- a projection-that is ultimately led to the position where it's concreteness and reality are denied. The positive findings on the health, happiness, and flourishing of religious believers and altruists is a factor in the new openness of psychology to religious faith and spirituality. It upholds and contains all things,but it itself contained by nothing; and therefore it is God-God is love. What Jesus does in his person is to demonstrate it. Jesus told a parable about birds and seeds: "Listen! Behold,a sower went out to sow. And it happened,as he sowed, that some seed fell by the wayside; and the birds of the air came and devoured it"(Mark 4:3-4). Other seed fell on good ground and yielded an abundant crop.
