God the Only Mind

Sometimes we hear the remark made by one desirous of engaging in the systematic study of Christian Science, "I find it so hard to study; it seems so difficult to concentrate my thoughts!" Here is a condition of mortal thought which should not be submitted to, but speedily overcome, if one is to progress. How is it to be analyzed? Is there more than one Mind? Has man a mind apart from God, infinite divine Mind? Is the real man, made in the image and likeness of God, of which material man is but the counterfeit, subservient to the lie of a mortal belief in more than one Mind?

Let us read on page 318 of the textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," how Mrs. Eddy answers these questions. There she writes: "In Science man is governed by God, divine Principle, as numbers are controlled and proved by His laws. Intelligence does not originate in numbers, but is manifested through them." And, again, on the following page, she says, "Mystery, miracle, sin, and death will disappear when it becomes fairly understood that the divine Mind controls man and man has no Mind but God." Since God, divine Principle, is All, man, the spiritual expression of God, cannot be influenced or controlled by erroneous mortal beliefs, improperly called mind. Intelligence, wisdom, and understanding are qualities of God; therefore the qualities of man are, by reflection, those of his Maker. The thoughts of immortal man are God's thoughts, ever fixedall that is pure, righteous, helpful, and harmonious.
