"Mind is the natural stimulus"

Mrs. Eddy refers to perfect divine Mind as the basis for right thinking and acting. She states (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 420), "Mind is the natural stimulus of the body, but erroneous belief, taken at its best, is not promotive of health or happiness." What one understands of reality stimulates the thought in that direction, and in order to correct the beliefs of materialism it is essential that one's thought dwell on the true creation of Mind.

A knowledge of the spiritual universe and man gives to human thought the impetus for true spiritual attainment. The Psalmist saith, "Beautiful for situation, the joy of the whole earth, is mount Zion." Mrs. Eddy states the standard of students of Christian Science when she writes (ibid., p. 497), "As adherents of Truth, we take the inspired Word of the Bible as our sufficient guide to eternal Life."
