Maintain Your Spiritual Consciousness

"All consciousness is Mind; and Mind is God,—an infinite, and not a finite consciousness. This consciousness is reflected in individual consciousness, or man, whose source is infinite Mind. There is no really finite mind, no finite consciousness," writes Mary Baker Eddy (Unity of Good, p. 24). Man therefore is spiritual, perfect, harmonious, and complete. Man's health, happiness, intelligence, understanding, and wisdom are inherent in his spiritual, Mind-given consciousness; his righteousness is in his spiritual consciousness of the ever-presence of infinite good, God.

Into divine consciousness enters no evil, no finite, mortal concept of existence, person, place, or thing. Any such concept lacks reality and belongs to a dream state, or mortal mind. In the waking dream of material-mindedness, disease and death, sin and discord seem to be real, but are contradictions of the truth of being. As our understanding of Spirit, God, and His reflection, man and the universe, increases, we are freed in ever greater degree from the belief in and consequences of evil of every kind. Our Leader asks in "Miscellaneous Writings" (p. 179): "Is our consciousness in matter or in God? Have we any other consciousness than that of good? If we have, He is saying to us to-day, 'Adam, where art thou?' We are wrong if our consciousness is in sin, sickness, and death. This is the old consciousness."
