Christian Science reveals God as omniactive Mind, the source of unlimited energy, and man as Mind's spiritual idea, through which the divine energy is released in the boundless unfoldment of good. Man, then, can never know-limitation of activity. Since he is infinite Mind's expression, his scope of action is perpetually expanding in God's reflection of His own nature and will.

If living energy began in a finite body, it would necessarily express finiteness; usefulness would diminish, strength would fade, faculties and powers would deteriorate. Such an appearance, common to humanity, is contrary to real existence. Christian Science, explains it as a state of delusion, from which mankind needs to be awakened. In "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" Mary Baker Eddy mentions the penalty which mortals sometimes believe they must pay for an overworked brain, and she says (p. 387), "When we reach our limits of mental endurance, we conclude that intellectual labor has been carried sufficiently far; but when we realize that immortal Mind is ever active, and that spiritual energies can neither wear out nor can so-called material law trespass upon God-given powers and resources, we are able to rest in Truth, refreshed by the assurances of immortality, opposed to mortality."
