Apprehension of Spiritual Facts

When we consider the immensity of the stellar universe, it takes little imagination to see how relatively insignificant is our particular solar system, and consequently our individual human experiences. Consideration of these facts should serve to minimize our sense of human problems and to dissipate some inhibitions and idiosyncrasies, but it does not solve the problem of being.

The present-day trend in physical research is toward the recognition that matter is not what it seems to be, but it does not recognize Spirit as the only substance or reality. Mary Baker Eddy strikes at the root of the question in a remarkable statement in the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 209), where she says. "The compounded minerals or aggregated substances composing the earth, the relations which constituent masses hold to each other, the magnitudes, distances, and revolutions of the celestial bodies, are of no real importance, when we remember that they all must give place to the spiritual fact by the translation of man and the universe back into Spirit."
