Man's Spiritual Habitation

Contrary to the general opinion of the world, Christian Science reveals incontrovertibly that man lives in a spiritually mental realm, "an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens." Evil, in its myriad forms, can never enter this spiritual habitation, to annoy or to disturb. There harmony reigns supreme.

In her interpretation of the twenty-third Psalm, Mrs. Eddy renders the sixth verse thus: "Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; and I will dwell in the house [the consciousness] of [love] for ever" (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 578). Therefore, it is apparent that home is a state of consciousness, and that in proportion as we reflect omnipresent divine Love we mentally enter the true home, which is indestructible and eternal.

Our habitation is not a material structure of bricks and mortar, or wood, whether humble or magnificent. It is not something that can be materially built, bought, or rented. Rather is it in the realm of divine Mind, the conscious realization of eternal harmony.
