Right Reasoning

On page 492 of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" Mrs. Eddy writes: "For right reasoning there should be but one fact before the thought, namely, spiritual existence. In reality there is no other existence, since Life cannot be united to its unlikeness, mortality." The student does not pursue the study of Christian Science long until he discovers for himself how necessary it is to do exactly as Mrs. Eddy sets forth in the first of these sentences, in order that he may enter into the peace, the joy, the health, which belong to all men by divine right.

What is the position which appears to present itself to mortals? They seem to exist in a world which is material; they seem to live in matter, and by matter, and to have to protect themselves materially in order to continue to live. And think of the innumerable material devices with which they surround themselves to make living easier! Of course, there is the spiritual side also; but how comparatively insignificant it is to many, whose motto seems to be, "Let us eat and drink; for to morrow we die." And yet, the spiritual side of life is beyond compare the more important side, since it pertains to that which is enduring, eternal.
