"FROM SENSE TO SOUL"

Eleven times the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, Mary Baker Eddy, employs the words of this title in her writings. This hints the need that they be carefully studied by her followers. Ringing with the hope and trust this Science instills in human hearts, these words point to a sure haven from mortal troubles. They refer to the journey the so-called human mind must take as it departs from the false belief of life in matter and seeks the freedom of life in Soul, God. The journey is a mental one and involves removing the basis of being from corporeal sense to Soul, where man is found eternally perfect and spiritual, sinless and deathless—harmonious as Soul's perfect, immortal expression.

In her Message to The Mother Church for 1902 Mrs. Eddy names certain steps required of mankind before they reach the Christian goal of perfection. She says (p. 10): "When the human mind is advancing above itself towards the Divine, it is subjugating the body, subduing matter, taking steps outward and upwards. This upward tendency of humanity will finally gain the scope of Jacob's vision, and rise from sense to Soul, from earth to heaven."
