MIND'S BENEFICENT ACTION

A great revelation came to Moses when he heard God declare His name to be "I AM" (Ex. 3:14). It was thus that God asserted Himself as Mind, for what but Mind could name itself I AM, or consciousness, one Ego? Mary Baker Eddy says in "Miscellaneous Writings" (p. 258), "The name, I AM, indicated no personality that could be paralleled with it; but it did declare a mighty individuality, even the everlasting Father, as infinite consciousness, ever-presence, omnipotence; as all law, Life, Truth, and Love."

The supposititious opposite of divine Mind is the carnal, or mortal, mind, the counterfeit mind, which presents the reverse of all that is real and true. Divine Mind acts upon and affects human thought; but mortal mind cannot touch or affect Mind or its ideas. The action of Mind is always beneficent; it destroys the mortal element in human consciousness and leaves those who hear Mind's self-declaration uplifted and purified as well as happier and healthier than they were before they yielded to the divine action.
