True Attraction

As one ponders the spiritual import of attraction, two questions present themselves: first, What exists to attract? second, What exists to be attracted? Mary Baker Eddy has written in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 269), "Matter does not enter into metaphysical premises or conclusions." It follows that if we would gain the true answer to these two questions, we must reason from an entirely spiritual basis.

Material sense testimony offers many objections to its exclusion from consciousness; but our Leader gives us a dominant weapon in her statement in "Retrospection and Introspection" (p. 21): "It is well to know, dear reader, that our material, mortal history is but the record of dreams, not of man's real existence, and the dream has no place in the Science of being." Let us, then, consider "the Science of being."
