TRUE DOMINION

One of the most gifted and inspired individuals of all times was Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science. Her teacher and pastor in Tilton, New Hampshire, the Reverend Enoch Corser, gave the following estimate of her while she was yet a young girl (The Life of Mary Baker Eddy by Sibyl Wilbur, p. 33): "Bright, good, and pure, aye brilliant! I never before had a pupil with such depth and independence of thought. She has some great future, mark that. She is an intellectual and spiritual genius." True genius has a spiritual origin; it has its source in the divine Mind. Genius expresses the dominion of released intelligence.

Mrs. Eddy says in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 213), "Mortal mind is the harp of many strings, discoursing either discord or harmony according as the hand, which sweeps over it, is human or divine." She has shown how individuals governed by God can express unlimited capabilities by which sublime achievements are natural to them. Irresistibly they produce the fruits of divine inspiration. This does not imply, however, that phenomenal attainments are not supplemented by systematic, conscientious work.
