Disease Was Never Real

Humanity probably is concerned with no greater problem than that of maintaining health. The fact that mortals spend a large proportion of their time and effort in trying to attain it shows the high premium which is placed on it. The further fact that it has not been widely secured, proves that humanity has not been looking in the right direction for health; hence the many failures and disappointed hopes.

Christian Science has revealed to the world the divine verity that, as Mrs. Eddy says in "Miscellaneous Writings" (p. 298), "The true consciousness is the true health." The human so-called mind has for so long believed that health is material and governed by material conditions, that such a statement comes as a distinct shock to its age-long beliefs. That our Leader's statement is eternally true, however, can be proved in the personal experience of any earnest seeker for a right understanding of health and harmony.

Divine Science has revealed to this age the fact that God is the only Mind, the one true and infinite intelligence. Divine Mind has only one way to express itself—through right ideas. This Mind includes every right idea; hence, it includes the right idea of health or harmonious being. This Mind cannot include within itself anything inharmonious, negative, or destructive, else it would embody something which would eventually cause Mind, God, to be self-destructive; and such a theory is unthinkable. Man is made in God's image and likeness, and is the full and complete expression of all God's attributes or qualities. He must be conscious of that of which God is conscious. In his true being he must know only that which God knows, namely, harmony, completeness, perfection, and wholeness. God could no more produce inharmony in man, His reflection, than music could express itself in discord.
