THE ART OF DISCARD
Mortals are free moral agents, to choose whom they would serve," writes Mary Baker Eddy in "Unity of Good" (p. 60). It is clear, then, that each individual is free to choose continually between the substantial, or real, ideas of God, divine Mind, and the insubstantial, or unreal, suggestions of evil, or the carnal mind.
This process of choosing is manifest in everyday experiences through what might be called "the art of discard." When, for instance, symptoms of contagion or other discordant suggestions of disease approach the door of thought, each of us has the right and opportunity to reject, or discard, such notions.
Mrs. Eddy states in the textbook of Christian Science, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (pp. 425, 426), "Discard all notions about lungs, tubercles, inherited consumption, or disease arising from any circumstance, and you will find that mortal mind, when instructed by Truth, yields to divine power, which steers the body into health."
