Right Thoughts Are Power
How many times a day we say that we think thus and so. Yet often we do not really think; we only suppose, or hope, or fear. To think intelligently and constructively is to reflect the activity of the one divine Mind.
Thought is the arena or field of action in which all the affairs of human living must first take place; and the quality of one's thinking determines his experiences. Truly, all that has ever been accomplished in history for the advancement and welfare of the human race has sprung from consecrated, unselfed thought. In the degree that the endeavor to apply intelligence is noble, unselfish, and honest are the results happy and enduring. Conversely, when the thought of mankind is beclouded by negative and selfish arguments, disappointing and distressing effects appear.
Man's inalienable heritage is an alert and joyous awareness of the truth of being; and to this mental atmosphere contentment and health are indigenous. Man, the manifestation of the one Mind, reflects nought but the pure and perfect ideas which ever emanate from God, the Father of all. The facts pertaining to thought have been clearly set forth by Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, on page 286 of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures": "God's thoughts are perfect and eternal, are substance and Life. Material and temporal thoughts are human, involving error, and since God, Spirit, is the only cause, they lack a divine cause."
