"As he thinketh"

CHRISTIAN SCIENCE teaches us how to think rightly. It shows us that right thinking is essential if we would attain health, poise, and happiness. Few people knew before beginning the study of Christian Science that thought had any connection whatever with physical well-being or their success in life. Yet this truth that Christian Science emphasizes is not new. It has always existed. The Bible says of a man, "As he thinketh in his heart, so is he;" and Mrs. Eddy, in the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," further elucidates this truth when she says, on page 213, "Hence as a man spiritually under-standeth, so is he in truth."

The spiritually scientific fact is the divinely real, and this fact cannot be inverted or perverted by a false material concept, for we find in the first chapter of Genesis that "God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good." That work being complete, nothing can be added to it, nor anything taken from it. Therefore it is necessary that we see this fact and hold fast to it. In this way we shall begin our course in right thinking. We shall begin to acknowledge the goodness and allness of God, and in turn this truth will change our lives. Mrs. Eddy writes these assuring words in Science and Health (p. 261): "Hold thought steadfastly to the enduring, the good, and the true, and you will bring these into your experience proportionably to their occupancy of your thoughts."
