The Interpreter

DIVINE Mind is ever in direct communication with His idea, the real man. He therefore never has need of an intermediary by which to make His presence, power, and intelligence fully and demonstrably known and felt. Mortals, the product of the false, fleshly, supposititious, carnal, or death mind, do, however, seem to be in constant need of something which will remind them that God, divine Mind, is uninterruptedly making known to man, His idea, just exactly what it is right for man to know,—what man needs to know and must know. The human race supposes that it needs an interpreter for these divine messages, and it is for this reason that some of the world's most noted men and women have been so regarded, simply because they had the clear vision and ability to interpret for humanity the import of vital, spiritual truths. When all men correctly interpret the truths which emanate from the one infinite Mind, or consciousness, the reign of universal harmony will be conceded to be a present and demonstrable fact.

"We can have but one Mind, if that one is infinite," writes Mrs. Eddy on page 469 of Science and Health. A realization that this one and only good Mind, or Mind of good, is omnipresence, omnipotence, and omniscience, when steadfastly adhered to inevitably prevents men from differing from each other. They, then, must of necessity be able to understand each other thoroughly, and for that reason to be always in perfect agreement. It is because the truth about God, the one and only Mind, is not properly interpreted, that they utterly fail to understand each other as they should. It is, then, this interpretation of what properly constitutes the facts of creation which must be gained in order that that Mind may be in us, "which was also in Christ Jesus." The universe of divine Mind must always be inseparable from and coexistent with Him, for cause is always one with the effect which expresses it.
