HUMILITY AND DOMINION

A student of Christian Science was almost overwhelmed by a sense of self-condemnation and sadness. He turned to "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, knowing that in this unique and wonderful textbook he would find the spiritual help and inspiration that he needed. The first words which met his eyes were (p. 514): "Mind, joyous in strength, dwells in the realm of Mind. Mind's infinite ideas run and disport themselves. In humility they climb the heights of holiness."

While pondering these lines, he thought: Since divine Mind and its idea, including all creation, are the only realities of being, nothing outside of Mind has existence. Reality includes love, intelligence, strength, humility, dominion, and holiness. Holiness means absolute purity. God's ideas "climb the heights of holiness" and partake of the effortless unfoldment of Spirit as His spontaneous expressions. Self-condemnation and sadness, therefore, are but misconceptions or lies of the so-called carnal mind. They are destitute of any power, cause, or influence whatever and cannot touch man.
