Starflower of Boston – Part 1

            Helen Wright’s book STAR OF BOSTON The Life of Mary Baker Eddy has three sections to it.  Part I is about Mary Baker Eddy fulfilling Isaiah 54, Part II is Atonement and Eucharist: the story of the Second Coming of the Christ as Revelation, and Part III is about Christ and Christmas, an illustrated poem by Mary Baker Eddy.  And finally there is a Conclusion.
            What I would like to talk to you about is Part III of her book.  Helen uses quote excerpts from the writings of Alice Orgain and a manuscript attributed (but never confirmed) to Judge Septimus J. Hanna.  When she quotes from this manuscript she places a question mark after Hanna’s name.  She also gives us some ideas on the topic by John Pawlik, someone she knew.  I have studied Christ and Christmas for years, and am not sure that I agree with everything that Alice Orgain writes upon the topic, but I am open to changing my mind.  And I think that I have done so on Illustration 8 – TREATING THE SICK.  It is explained in Helen’s book that every illustration points to a particular time in Mary Baker Eddy’s life, which is probably so, and so I will try and bring out that point to you, as I do not know if I have succeeded in my past posts on the topic in this respect (or on this topic).  Part 1 is about how Christ and Christmas correlates with the symbols in The First Church of Christ Scientist in Boston.  Parts 2 and 3 have to do with Sharon’s Rose Matrix and its alignment with WINDOW OF THE OPEN BOOK, a Rose Window on the South side of the little edifice in Boston.
            Helen did not include the material written by Doris Grekel (from one of her biographies on Mary Baker Eddy and in some of her pamphlets she used to publish).  This could be because Helen did not have room for everything out there written on Christ and Christmas, for her book is only 257 pages long and Alice Orgain’s two books are WAY bigger!
            I do not know John Pawlik, so I will leave him out of my discussion, because what I want to explain, at this point, is the big difference between the Orgain, Hanna (?), and Grekel ideas on Christ and Christmas.

SPIRITUAL INSIGHTS

The following is at the very end of my post – “The Spiritual Idea” – pt. 2.  I wanted to add to it after seeing The Da Vinci Code again (on March 24, 2017).  I have added new material to the post.  I will not go into as great of detail as I could about The Da Vinci Code because I have eleven-part post on it elsewhere called – The Da Vinci Code Uncoded.  (If you have read SPIRITUAL INSIGHTS before April 9, 2017, there have been a few additions made.)

            In the drawing above of The First Church of Christ Scientist, in Boston, it stands alone without the Extension.  Notice that there is the dove of divine Science descending down with a detached branch in its beak.  This matches the dove seen in the second drawing for the eleventh Illustration in Christ and Christmas titled THE WAY (seen below is part of THE WAY, as the dove is hard to make out in the full view I have of the Illustration).

            “The (little) Mother Church is the best interpreter of the limitations of ‘Mother.’  It is lighted by {a star with seven points of light, in the skylight of the auditorium (a picture of this skylight is seen further on)} …and the vestibule leading to Mother’s Room (the latter closed in 1908, Nov. 21, 1908, Sentinel), is also lighted by a seven pointed star {which I do not have a picture of}.” (p. 474)

Bird's Eye View

            Above is a drawing I did, several years ago (even before I saw a satellite photo of the Church) of the original Edifice in Boston.  I am not sure I am accurate with the directions in it either (without actually going there and knowing where true North is located at).  The skylight window is oversized.  In the center of the skylight is the seven-pointed Star, like the one seen in the Vestry.  Below is a close up of what Assembly would look like if it had taken place in the Disney movie Earth*Star Voyager.

Assembly

            To me the seven points of each star represents the seven synonymous terms for God:  Mind, Spirit, Soul, Principle, Life, Truth, and Love.  At this time I would like to insert a portion of a letter written by David Nolan in 2003 about Mother’s Room.
