SPIRITUAL ENERGY

In the rush and tumble of the present age the quality of spiritual strength is one we can well rejoice to find in Christian Science. Isaiah wrote (30:15), "In quietness and in confidence shall be your strength." Spiritual strength is expressed in quietness and confidence, not alone in physical energy; indeed, mere physical energy is opposed to spiritual strength. Mary Baker Eddy draws a sharp contrast between physical force and spiritual strength. She shows the former to be the outcome of mortal mind, for she writes in "Science and Health with Key to the (p. 484), "Physical force and mortal mind are one."

If energy is regarded as material, if it is believed to be dependent on matter and separated from God, then it becomes subject to the so-called laws of action and reaction, renewal and depletion, birth and death. But spiritual energies are constant; they do not appear and disappear. Spiritual energies are eternal, undiminished by age or circumstance.
