The Safety of Reflection

Mankind is wont to turn hither and thither in the effort to escape from its belief of life in matter, which takes form in sickness, sin, want, death. Men in general yield to this belief, not knowing how to turn from it to the truth of spiritual being. To this harried state of thought Christian Science unfolds the haven of Spirit and of spiritual reflection, in which it is never too soon, and never too late, to find regeneration, health, and harmony.

On page 57 of "Retrospection and Introspection" Mrs. Eddy writes: "Man shines by borrowed light. He reflects God as his Mind, and this reflection is substance,—the substance of good." Spiritual man is the offspring of Spirit, the divine cause, and is not himself causative or creative. Spiritual man is "complete in him," substantial as Mind's own image, complete by reflection. Even as God is conscious only of His limitless spiritual manifestation, so, of necessity, is man conscious only of God and of spiritual affluence.
