On Being Conscious of God's Presence

"God is infinite, therefore ever present, and there is no other power nor presence," writes Mrs. Eddy on page 471 of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," continuing, "Hence the spirituality of the universe is the only fact of creation." What food for thought these words contain! How we long to be more conscious of the truth of them! For we know that the fuller our realization of their meaning, the greater shall be our mastery over materiality and the deeper the harmony and peace of our lives. There is no power nor presence but that of God; and God's creation, which is the image or reflection of Himself, is spiritual. Such is the teaching of Christian Science.

The student of Christian Science early realizes the importance of dwelling in the consciousness of the presence of God. Once he has recognized the fact of God's ever-presence, his aim is to attain to an ever increasing sense of it. And this entails consecration; and consecration means a life devoted to the attaining of spiritual understanding, a life of prayer, a life which expresses good continually. In this way thought is spiritualized; and thereby one rises above the false material sense of things, including the trials which seem to accompany it.
