Idealism

In her Message to The Mother Church for 1902 (p. 2) Mrs. Eddy writes, "To live and let live, without clamor for distinction or recognition; to wait on divine Love; to write truth first on the tablet of one's own heart,—this is the sanity and perfection of living, and my human ideal." It is this "sanity and perfection of living" that everyone surely desires; and the above statement indicates that among its constituents are humility, loyalty, wisdom, patience, sincerity.

The Christian Scientist finds the open door to spiritual dominion over all discord by maintaining true thinking, thus expressing the spiritual qualities which constitute man in the divine image. This process enables him, by sure degrees, to banish sickness from his thought and experience and to resist temptation. Sin and sickness are unideal, and whatever is unideal is unreal, minus divine law, authority, or attraction. The Christian Scientist who desires to express health and righteousness must acknowledge their spiritual source and draw nearer to God. He must be a scientific thinker and must, as far as practical, live what he thinks. The ideal of spiritual perfection must always be before him, leading him higher.
