Spiritual harmony is the absolute fact of being; it characterizes the true state of existence. Students of Christian Science are attaining an ever clearer realization of that true state of existence through their study and demonstration of Truth. They are gaining a spiritual sense of peace and calmness, of strength, dominion, and power, and of the perfect balance and order that prevail in God's spiritual universe, the only universe there really is.

Harmony is inherent in everyone. So it is with a deep sense of joy that the Christian Scientist begins to realize that he does actually exist in perfect harmony and that any belief to the contrary is only mortal illusion. In "Pulpit and Press" Mary Baker Eddy makes this most comforting statement (p.2): "The real house in which 'we live, and move, and have our being' is Spirit, God, the eternal harmony of infinite Soul." One may find that a careful study of Soul, with the aid of the Concordances to the Bible and Mrs. Eddy's writings, is most rewarding in an effort to realize spiritual harmony.

From this study one learns that, as Mrs. Eddy writes in the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p.477), "Man is the expression of Soul." We rightly deduce, then, that man can be conscious only of that which is of Soul, God. He is conscious only of reality, not of illusory material sense, the opposite of Soul. Therefore he cannot be aware of pain or pleasure in the physical body.
