The Healing Consciousness

The writer of the book of Proverbs, speaking of mortal man, declares, "As he thinketh in his heart, so is he." Mrs. Eddy writes in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 167), "Our proportionate admission of the claims of good or of evil determines the harmony of our existence,—our health, our longevity, and our Christianity." It may seem strange to the beginner in Christian Science that he can improve his body, have dominion over his sense of environment, and influence his future by the thoughts he entertains, but that this is true has been proved beyond question. We have in the teachings of Christian Science positive rules whereby we may prove the truth of every statement made; and the faithful worker brings into his experience health, happiness, and harmony as the results of his faithfulness to these rules.

The kingdom of heaven is found in the consciousness of good. The only place where evil can claim to operate is in wrong thinking, in the thought which believes in the reality of grief, sin, sickness, and strife. Good and good alone is to be talked, thought, and lived, if we would be healthy and happy. Spiritual thoughts are emanations of the divine Mind; and this Mind is God, the one and only creator, who creates nothing but good, and who therefore causes His spiritual ideas to reflect divine power. God knows truth only, and all that is true has its source in Him, the divine Mind. The realization of this fact enables one to think true thoughts and thus become mentally at-one with God. The real man knows nothing, thinks nothing, but what the Father knows.
