A WAY TO HAPPINESS

Happiness , an attribute of God, is never found in non-intelligence, since it originates in divine Mind, Spirit. Teaching the repudiation of all material sense, Christian Science reveals the spiritual man, created in God's own likeness, as perfect. Therefore, this man must reflect all the attributes which emanate from the parent Mind, God. Each one of us can demonstrate the beauty of love, holiness, and happiness in his daily walk in the degree that he recognizes the supremacy of Spirit over matter.

Our beloved Leader, Mary Baker Eddy, writes in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 57): "Happiness is spiritual, born of Truth and Love. It is unselfish; therefore it cannot exist alone, but requires all mankind to share it." Happiness, then, is a spiritual quality which must be shared with one's fellow man. But many of us, failing to realize that happiness comes from Spirit only, confuse its true significance with elation, which falls far short of true joy. One may become elated by the purchase of a new car, but this emotion, engendered by an inanimate, unintelligent object, all too quickly passes away. Attributes of Mind do not fluctuate with either material loss or gain.
