Dreams

"ENTIRELY separate from the belief and dream of material living, is the Life divine," says our beloved Leader, Mrs. Eddy, on page 14 of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," the textbook of Christian Science. Loyal Christian Scientists are continually striving to gain a fuller understanding of this revelation of Truth through the study of their textbook, in order that they may awaken more completely from the material dream, and thus comprehend more of the "Life divine." But this false sense of existence, of physical life, seems so real to human consciousness that mortals, until awakened by Christian Science, unquestioningly accept it as a fact of being, not knowing that they are thereby being cheated out of a glorious heritage, the heritage of the children of God.

In our textbook (p. 188) we find this statement: "Mortal existence is a dream of pain and pleasure in matter, a dream of sin, sickness, and death; and it is like the dream we have in sleep, in which every one recognizes his condition to be wholly a state of mind." And on page 250 is this pertinent query: "Now I ask, Is there any more reality in the waking dream of mortal existence than in the sleeping dream?"
