GOD IS OMNIACTION

Explaining the connection between Mind and action, Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, writes in her textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 480), "Consciousness, as well as action, is governed by Mind,—is in God, the origin and governor of all that Science reveals." The very nature of God's infinite being is therefore expressed and revealed in the unfoldment of ideas characterized by activity, spontaneity, and life. In the infinity of Mind there is no such thing as a dead, a stagnant, a dormant, or an inactive idea. All the ideas in being proclaim God, Mind, as omniaction and are forever alive.

Considering the very nature of being, one cannot conceive of it as otherwise than active. Being is never static. Activity is life. Inactivity is death. Mind's ideas, having their origin in God, are not impelled to act; their very substance and being are the expression of Mind's own action. Every idea is therefore fulfilling its purpose and function as an expression of God, and in so doing is co-ordinating and co-operating with every other idea of being. In this one omniaction of Love all ideas are reciprocally blessing one another.
