ALONE WITH REALITY

No right thinker wishes to be mentally influenced by the meddling thoughts of others. One's sovereign right is to be independent of and unlimited by the negative minds of mortals. Mary Baker Eddy says in her Message to The Mother Church for 1901 (p. 20), "Man is properly self-governed, and he should be guided by no other mind than Truth, the divine Mind." And she adds a little farther on, "The Christian Scientist is alone with his own being and with the reality of things."

Christian Science forbids one's being falsely influenced by others, as well as one's doing such influencing. Neither the ignorant influence of general belief in error nor the hateful influence of directed thought can harm the Scientist who understands that he "is alone with his own being and with the reality of things."
