The evidence of the spiritual senses—is it becoming more real to us?

THE ACTUAL

What is it that is actual and real to us, and how are we to separate the real from the unreal in our daily experience? Christian Science teaches that reality is God and His spiritual creation; hence matter is unreal, not actual. A dictionary defines "actual" as "existing in fact."

As we go about our daily rounds, we are mentally accepting something as true or rejecting it as false. We see the sun sink at evening, but comprehending something of the nature of the universe and stellar movements, we recognize the testimony of our eyes as not actual. Railroad tracks seem to converge, but actually we know that they do not. Understanding enables us to reject as untrue the testimony of the material senses.
