[Original article in German]
In the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," Mary Baker Eddy writes (p. 298): "Spiritual sense, contradicting the material senses, involves intuition, hope, faith, understanding, fruition, reality." What a wonderful gift is spiritual sense! In his first letter to the Corinthians (2:16) Paul designated spiritual sense as "the mind of Christ," by which those things that "eye hath not seen, nor ear heard" (2:9) are recognized.
Anyone who through the study and practice of Christian Science has gained even a slight understanding of the truths of spiritual being can tell of sudden enlightenment and inspiration, or of an intuition which has come to his aid in times of stress and has helped him to overcome difficult problems. Therefore one is surprised that there are not more people claiming this spiritual sense with which to discern spiritual facts. By so doing one would learn to refute the materialistic concept of creation, sponsored by material intellectualism.
Through intuition or spiritual perception we are loosed from the space and time barriers of mortal consciousness. We become conscious of the powers and capacities of the divine Mind, the source of all wisdom and intelligence, the origin of all true and perfect ideas. Mrs. Eddy says of man (Science and Health, p. 475), "He is the compound idea of God, including all right ideas." Hence man is forever conscious of the perfect world of ideas. When we separate ourselves from a sense of corporeality and recognize our spiritual unity with our creator, we are able to hear the still but insistent small voice of Truth, which guides us and helps us solve problems of every nature. In this way we "put on the new man" (Eph. 4:24), who is created in God's likeness.
