The Kingdom of Heaven

The kingdom of heaven! What is it? A place afar off in space, or is it a place at all? Mrs. Eddy tells us what it is on page 590 of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," where she writes: "KINGDOM OF HEAVEN. The reign of harmony in divine Science; the realm of unerring, eternal, and omnipotent Mind; the atmosphere of Spirit, where Soul is supreme." The kingdom of heaven, then, is not a locality, not a place near by or afar off; it is a state of consciousness characterized by harmony, and by harmony alone.

That "heaven" is a harmonious state of consciousness is made very plain by Christian Science, which reveals the truth that God is infinite, omnipresent, omnipotent Mind, Spirit, Soul, and that, since God is infinite and perfect, only harmony is present anywhere. That is spiritual fact. And as we understand it we see the necessity of demonstrating it. It is a wonderful truth, that the kingdom of heaven, harmony, is at hand to be proved; that we can enter it now through spiritual understanding.
