THE TRANSLATION OF MATTER INTO MIND

"Science, understood, translates matter into Mind, rejects all other theories of causation, restores the spiritual and original meaning of the Scriptures, and explains the teachings and life of our Lord." This declaration of Mary Baker Eddy is found on page 25 of "Miscellaneous Writings." As our understanding of spiritual reality increases, through our study of Christian Science, we learn how to translate matter into Mind, not by changing a so-called material manifestation, but by changing our view of the manifestation. It is the understanding of God as Mind and as Spirit which enables us to demonstrate the nothingness of matter.

Every healing in Christian Science comes about because some belief in the reality of matter has yielded. The temptation is always in try to change matter instead of changing our view of it. Science teaches that matter does not really exist. Right where the belief in matter claims to be, right there the substance of Spirit already is.
