THE HARMONY OF BEING

How may I experience more harmony? No doubt this question is in the thought of everyone in greater or lesser degree. In "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" Mary Baker Eddy provides this answer (p. 427): "The belief that existence is contingent on matter must be met and mastered by Science, before Life can be understood and harmony obtained."

Harmony of being is generally considered a project for future development in a transcendental paradise called heaven. But Christian Science reveals harmony to be a practical possibility here and now. Contrary to prevalent theories, we do not meet the real issue of life by getting ourselves into heaven, but by awakening to the heaven that is already within ourselves. There is nothing really new about this revelation, however, for Christ Jesus said (Luke 17:20, 21), "The kingdom of God cometh not with observation: neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you."
