THERE IS NO SEPARATION IN GOOD

Separation is a word which may to human sense convey something in the nature of sadness and trial. Mortals are apt to be afraid of being separated from good, from their loved ones, home, work and supply, health and harmony. One does not wonder that this is so, because the carnal mind, being enmity against God, claims that man is separated from his divine source, the creator of all good. This false claim is the material conception of man and the universe, which spiritual understanding shows to be an unlovely and loveless dream. Truth, as revealed by Mary Baker Eddy in Christian Science, unveils man as the exact reflection of perfect Mind, and so absolutely one with the divine Mind; it makes known that he has no life, truth, intelligence, or substance apart from God, good. Therefore, in all plain logic, man cannot possibly know anything outside of what is included in the infinite All.

Christian Science teaches those who wish to understand it that they can lift their lives into oneness with God by steadfastly refusing to give error any reality or power to harm. "Entirely separate from the belief and dream of material living, is the Life divine, revealing spiritual understanding and the consciousness of man's dominion over the whole earth," writes Mrs. Eddy in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 14), thus showing that spiritual understanding is man's birthright—that it belongs to him as a child of God. If we really acknowledge this truth, we shall prove that we cannot be separated from spiritual understanding by the mesmeric dream of human birth, growth, maturity, and decay.
