Relation with the Divine

Harmony is a spiritual fact. Yet all too often in our human affairs, self-will, personal pride, and ambition assert themselves. Envy, hatred, jealousy, and fear seem to prevail, where peace and brotherly love should express the order of true being. Only as human relationships are brought into conformity with the operation of divine law do they become enduring, harmonious, helpful to the individual, and conducive to spiritual growth. Christian Science shows how this can be done.

Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, in "Miscellaneous Writings" (p. 151), speaks of God as "man's only real relative on earth and in heaven." From this it is readily seen that the only real relationship is that with God, good. What then, precisely, is man's relationship with God, good?
