God's Ideas

Looking back, at times, over the paths we have trodden since beginning the study of Christian Science, we can perceive some of the steps by which we have risen to higher planes and which enable us to get clearer views of the infinite ideas of Mind even though these steps were hard won, and perhaps appeared to be stopping places from which it seemed impossible, at times, to mount higher. Then a line, a sentence, in some of our literature, perhaps; a thought, an inspiration, would dispel the mist, and we would get a glimpse of that which is beyond, encouraging us to renewed effort.

On page 76 of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" Mrs. Eddy says: "The sinless joy,—the perfect harmony and immortality of Life, possessing unlimited divine beauty and goodness without a single bodily pleasure or pain,—constitutes the only veritable, indestructible man, whose being is spiritual." Could this be anything but spiritual consciousness, could it bring anything less than freedom, when understood, and is there any other way to gain this "sinless joy" save by earnest endeavor to attain to this state of consciousness?
