Action

Christian Science reveals God, divine Mind, as the perpetual and only source of perfect action. In the realm of true consciousness there is always spontaneous, unfettered, fruitful activity. The Revelator writes, "And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb." Does not this reveal spiritual man's consciousness as incessantly reflecting omniactive Love and endowed with its power, purity, and joy? From this pure and active fount only perfection is emanating. Knowing this, the Christian Scientist is alert to deny the counterfeit suggestions which attempt to pollute his thinking with intruding beliefs of resentment, fear, sensualism, so diverting his thought from the pure source of true ideas. The intent of animal magnetism is to rivet thought to materiality; but the ever present counter fact is spiritual attraction: "I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me."

Recognizing and resisting every attempt of error to make him a false witness, the Christian Scientist knows better than to brood over any discord, for this ruminating over unreality claims to be the counterfeit action of the so-called carnal mind. If yielded to, it would prevent one's mental obedience to the demands of divine Principle.
