Life is God, good. All true law is included in God, divine Life, Truth, and Love. Divine Life is naturally creative and spiritually continuous, There are no material laws to deny the continuity of Life, for no such laws exist. Spiritual law ensures perfection of origin and perpetual well-being. God, expressed through His spiritual laws, demands that every experience be in harmony with Himself, the Maker of all. Every real experience is a harmonious experience. Whatever is erroneous is extraneous to Truth, and since the man of God exists in Truth, such experiences do not form any part of man's experience.

These facts are found in the understanding of divine Principle, Love, and this is where we find man. When we learn in Christian Science to accept the Bible declaration as practical (I John 3:2), "Beloved, now are we the sons of God," we find that joyous, healthy, sinless being is our only being. When error assails or suggests that we are not the sons and daughters of God, do we listen to the voice of error or to the voice of Truth? Should we not flee for refuge to "the secret place of the most High" and remain there. This secret place is man's dwelling place. He is not a visitor, but a resident in God's kingdom.

How can we find our true selfhood? Through prayer. Through daily communion with the Christ, the Rock, the strong tower and the firm foundation of life. We cannot in truth be moved from the basis of spiritual being.
