In Science and Health, page 89, we read, "Mind is not necessarily dependent upon educational processes. It possesses of itself all beauty and poetry, and the power of expressing them."

We read in the Bible that it was asked concerning Jesus, "How knoweth this man letters, having never learned?" We are constantly seeing people who can do some one thing naturally and well. They realize, partially, their freedom in this one direction. To one, perhaps, it is music which seems "divinely natural;" to another poetry; to one mathematics are clear and the answers to problems come without study. All this helps in proving that Mind does possess all this beauty and power, and one person catches a glimpse of it, and expresses it in one way without study, and another reflects it in another way.

We are to learn that this freedom of which one feels a slight sense in one direction, we are each one to feel in every direction, not, perhaps, by study in that particular line of thought, but by the illumination which the divine Mind gives, by which our minds shall take such leaps as the child taught by Science takes to-day, leaping over the so-called science of medicine into the one great, simple, all-comprehending and error-destroying thought that "Mind is all."
