Atomic Action

In "Miscellaneous Writings" by Mary Baker Eddy (p. 190) we find a statement that should revolutionize and emancipate modern thinking. It falls like gentle dew from the heaven of hope upon the parched earth of doctrinal doubt, for it attributes all cause and effect to Mind. It raises the radical banner of freedom—freedom from bondage to material law—by transferring thought from matter to Spirit. It opens the highway to the loveliness of spiritual living. The statement reads: "Atomic action is Mind, not matter. It is neither the energy of matter, the result of organization, nor the outcome of life infused into matter: it is infinite Spirit, Truth, Life, defiant of error or matter."

Seventy-four years ago the belief that matter is real received its deathblow when Mrs. Eddy discovered the Science of Life and gave to the world "the scientific statement of being" (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 468). The truth in this statement of the allness of Mind and the nothingness of matter has healed thousands of cases of disease. It has also restored many people to usefulness by freeing them from so-called laws of physiology and heredity. It has brought to others emancipation from the latent fear of death by revealing man's true birthright of eternal life in God, good.
