LOOK AT THE PERFECT MODEL

Who does not desire to demonstrate wholeness, harmony, and perfection in his experience? Individual salvation depends upon the expression of these qualities in our lives, and our demonstration of them depends in turn upon the model we are holding in thought. Wholeness, harmony, perfection, are the very nature of God, and He is the one to whom we look as our model. The Bible says (Isa. 45:22), "Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else."

Christian Science teaches that spiritual man reflects only Godlike qualities and that a material body is not this man. It shows us how to turn from the physical body to the spiritual reality and to identify ourselves with this reality. Mary Baker Eddy, our revered Leader, writes in the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 261): "Look away from the body into Truth and Love, the Principle of all happiness, harmony, and immortality. Hold thought steadfastly to the enduring, the good, and the true, and you will bring these into your experience proportionably to their occupancy of your thoughts."
