Overtones and Undertones

On page 496 of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, the author says, "Hold perpetually this thought,—that it is the spiritual idea, the Holy Ghost and Christ, which enables you to demonstrate, with scientific certainty, the rule of healing, based upon its divine Principle, Love, underlying, overlying, and encompassing all true being."

A student of Christian Science, as a child and all the way to young womanhood, remembers one characteristic, namely, her love of music and singing. Among her earliest memories is that of the singing of hymns and sacred music in the church which she attended. So great was her ability to sing away troubles and heartaches that in later years, amid seeming afflictions, her sister said to her one day, "Do not let the song go out of your life." At that time how to do this she did not know; but later, when she had found Christian Science and was striving to understand its teachings, this counsel stood out like a beacon light.

Mrs. Eddy says in "Miscellaneous Writings" (p. 375), "The truest art of Christian Science is to be a Christian Scientist; and it demands more than a Raphael to delineate this art."
