Waking from the Mortal Dream

Great are the joy and peace that come from the conviction that one's real selfhood is not physical, material, and temporal, but wholly spiritual, incorporeal, and eternal. This conviction, attainable only through spiritually enlightened thought, is based upon the fact that man is not a helpless, struggling, isolated mortal adrift on a sea of misfortune. It brings complete assurance of man's safety, indestructibility, and immortality—his forever inseparability from God.

When through the study, application, and demonstration of Christian Science one awakens to these eternal truths, he concurs in Paul's declaration concerning the blessings which inevitably appear in human experience as thought becomes purified (II Cor. 5:17), "Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new."
