"The spiritual forces of divine Mind"

In the daily experience of mortals there are found in evidence various kinds of pressure. For example, there is gaseous pressure, atmospheric pressure, in the more obviously material realm, as well as pressure due to lack of time, and other kinds of mental pressure such as that resulting from unfulfilled financial obligations, and so forth. Then there is political pressure, and the sort of pressure exercised by so-called "pressure groups," organized for the purpose of influencing legislators to vote for or against certain measures which are under consideration.

All kinds of material pressure relate entirely to what appears to the physical senses to be taking place in the human body or in the material world. That gaseous and atmospheric pressure have no actual relationship to the activity of divine Mind, is made plain by what Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, says on page 293 of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," as follows: "The material so-called gases and forces are counterfeits of the spiritual forces of divine Mind, whose potency is Truth, whose attraction is Love, whose adhesion and cohesion are Life, perpetuating the eternal facts of being."
