THE SIMPLICITY OF REALITY

Life that is God contains nothing that is complicated. Man's existence as the child of God involves the simple, effortless process of reflecting his perfect Father. Man's life in God is divinely natural. Effortlessly man breathes the inspiration of Love. Constantly, and without any effort on man's part, God supplies him with perfect thoughts. The impartation of loving ideas from God to man goes on eternally and is never laborious. God's giving of good to His beloved child and man's receiving of this abundance of good can never be impaired or cut off—for, again, it is divinely natural. The effortless reflection of God contains no element of wearisome toil. The mirrored image is the likeness of the original. It does not have to attain that likeness; it is that likeness. Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, writes in her textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 527), "Man is God's reflection, needing no cultivation, but ever beautiful and complete." This is the simplicity of reality.

Error, however, would argue that life is complicated, difficult, and vexing. To the alert Christian Scientist the argument of complication betrays its source, and he turns with rejoicing to the simple, calm leading of the still small voice of Truth.
