Right Idea

EVERY right idea is blessed of God; maintained, supported, governed, controlled by the Mind which created it. No sense of lack can hinder a right idea, no sense of fear can retard it, no self-depreciation can stop it, no evil can rob it of unfoldment. Every right idea unfolds day by day, step by step. Mrs. Eddy, the Discoverer of Christian Science, says, in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 285), "God expresses in man the infinite idea forever developing itself, broadening and rising higher and higher from a boundless basis." It is never separated from its divine Principle, Mind. Mind and idea are one. As Jesus explained it, "I and my Father are one." This "I" which he said was one with the Father is the Christ-idea, or the real nature or life of man.

On page 591 of Science and Health Mrs. Eddy gives the following definition: "MAN. The compound idea of infinite Spirit; the spiritual image and likeness of God; the full representation of Mind." This "I," then, which is one with the Father or Mind, is made up of all right ideas, which combine to make the complete man of God's creating. Thus man has a right idea regarding health, home, position, supply, and all things that concern man. These things are the "all that I have is thine." No matter what the right idea concerning man may be, it cannot be discordant in any way or separated from its divine Principle, God, or Mind, which conceived it. All right ideas are conceived of Mind and maintained in perfection eternally.
