Spiritual Poise

The "scientific sense of being, forsaking matter for Spirit," Mary Baker Eddy assures us, "by no means suggests man's absorption into Deity and the loss of his identity, but confers upon man enlarged individuality, a wider sphere of thought and action, a more expansive love, a higher and more permanent peace" (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 265).

Students of Christian Science, as they grow in understanding, prove this to be true; and as they realize something of this "enlarged individuality," and this "wider sphere of thought and action," they express more love and joy, because they have glimpsed the infinite possibilities of being.

To the extent that a man gains the "scientific sense of being," he achieves spiritual poise, experiencing a deep inward peace—the peace which Paul describes as passing all understanding, satisfying and indestructible.
