Heaven Is at Hand

Nothing was ever more truly spoken than the oft-quoted words of Jesus, "The kingdom of God cometh not with observation: neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you." And yet mortals have persistently held to the belief that heaven, harmony, happiness, health, may be found in some place other than where they are.

This mistaken belief has obtained very largely because of the false theological teaching—entirely contrary to that of Jesus—that heaven is a place afar off, to which one must go through an experience called death. Christian Science teaches, as its Discoverer, Mary Baker Eddy, has said on page 291 of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," that heaven "is not a locality, but a divine state of Mind." And this teaching in regard to heaven exactly agrees, it will be seen, with that of Jesus.
