"Unfathomable Mind is expressed." This terse, positive statement by Mary Baker Eddy on page 520 of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" is demonstrable, as men and women the world over are proving each day. The statement is correct and logical, and its practical value to mankind cannot be overestimated. Many no longer believe that the things of God are transcendental.

Mrs. Eddy includes the statement quoted above in a paragraph with the marginal heading "Love and man coexistent," showing that Mind, God, cannot be separated from that which expresses Him. Thoughts cannot be separated from their source. Mind must have its manifestation in ideas, and man is the idea of this Mind. Our Leader writes (No and Yes, p. 27), "Science, divine Science, presents the grand and eternal verities of God and man as the divine Mind and that Mind's idea."

Mind's expression, or that which manifests Mind, is wholly mental, not physical. Mind's expression is spiritual, not to be found in matter. Man is therefore spiritually mental. Having established in thought the spiritual fact that Mind's expression is man, let us couple the word unfathomable with Mind, as did Mrs. Eddy, and we get an enlarged view of both God and man. When we realize that man is inseparable from that "unfathomable Mind" which knows no limits, no boundaries, we begin to see ourselves as God knows us.
