Cultivating Communion with God

Through communion with God, we attain conscious unity with Him. We learn something of our true relationship to God in which He is the Mind of man. In communion we also see more clearly the nothingness of mortality and find it natural to separate ourselves from the mortal sense of self whose mind is not God but a counterfeit of Mind. This gives us dominion over evil and enables us to demonstrate health and harmony in whatever situation we may be facing.

We learn in Christian Science that the individual who seems to be a mortal is not a mortal at all. But in the degree that he thinks of himself as a mortal—as born in the flesh, developing through material, hereditary, or mental influences and proceeding a little each day toward the end of his existence—he experiences separation from Mind, and this is mortality. When the individual begins to be dissatisfied with mortality, he searches for a higher sense. Then the spiritual qualities always present in human individuality come alive and cause one to seek communion with their source, Mind, God.
