TASTING HEAVEN

In the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," Mary Baker Eddy makes this challenging statement (p. 263): "When mortal man blends his thoughts of existence with the spiritual and works only as God works, he will no longer grope in the dark and cling to earth because he has not tasted heaven."

Heaven, or harmony, appears as we understand God's allness, wholeness, and eternality to be the only reality, and when mortal thinking with its lack, discord, or disease is understandingly denied substance or reality. Heaven, Christian Science reveals, is the realm of spiritual reality, a divine state of consciousness. Each one may attain this consciousness through the recognition of man's true nature as the offspring of Spirit, God.
