Soul, Not Sense, Satisfies

In the textbook of Christian Science, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," its author, Mary Baker Eddy, writes arrestingly (pp. 260, 261), "If we look to the body for pleasure, we find pain; for Life, we find death; for Truth, we find error; for Spirit, we find its opposite, matter." And she adds, a little farther on, "Hold thought steadfastly to the enduring, the good, and the true, and you will bring these into your experience proportionably to their occupancy of your thoughts."

Through the teachings of Christian Science we learn that there is no more urgent or profitable employment for anyone than that of replacing corporeal sense with spiritual understanding. And the time to enlist in such endeavor is today. A connoisseur of rare jewels spends just enough time on imitations to detect their counterfeit nature. No matter how glittering or attractive these synthetic stones may appear to the eye, he remains uninterested and unimpressed by them.
