As a Man Thinketh

In the following statements from "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 191) Mrs. Eddy discloses the way of escape from human bondage. There she writes: "The human thought must free itself from self-imposed materiality and bondage. It should no longer ask of the head, heart, or lungs: What are man's prospects for Mind is not helpless. Intelligence is not mute before non-intelligence." The Christian Scientist does not consult matter, but Mind, regarding all his prospects. Through spiritual intelligence he renders mute the discordant claims of sin and suffering. If one's health prospects seem bad, he can scientifically prove that health is a property of divine Mind, and that in the measure in which he reflects the purity and harmony of this Mind, he can conquer disease and enjoy health unprecariously, on the safe and permanent basis of God, Spirit. There is one Mind, and one source of health, sufficient for all.

Mankind in general adopts traditional beliefs and centers thought on the endless procession of physical sense impressions. These fleeting impressions are but as a mist hiding, yet not affecting, the substance of the spiritual creation and spiritual man. Moreover, through the application of Christian Science, the mist of false belief is dispelled by the radiance of spiritual ideas, for the truth about health, righteousness, happiness, and invariable abundance destroys human fear regarding these changeless impartations of Spirit, God.
