"Eternal noon"

On page 246 of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" Mrs. Eddy sets forth truths which, as they are developed in one's understanding, destroy one of the special bugbears that beset mankind, namely, age, with its fretting accompaniments. She writes, "Life and its faculties are not measured by calendars." She also says in the next paragraph: "The radiant sun of virtue and truth coexists with being. Manhood is its eternal noon, undimmed by a declining sun."

The entire page on which this discussion is found rings with powerful teaching regarding any and all mortal beliefs that would attempt to hold in a material form the life which reflects Life. Man is the full and complete expression of Mind, God, the eternal and infinite Life, the source of all real existence. Thus one may comprehend the eternal manhood of spiritual being. How understandingly did our clear-seeing Leader use the words "eternal noon" in referring to immortal, spiritual manhood!
