Silencing the Senses

The prophet Zechariah voiced a divinely metaphysical demand when he said (2:13), "Be silent, O all flesh, before the Lord: for he is raised up out of his holy habitation."

The silencing of the flesh, alias the five corporeal senses, is the great triumph of Christian Science. Only by silencing the senses can we obliterate their subjective states—disease, poverty, crime, discord. For these evil states of mind and similar ones are delusive effects of sense excitement, and they cannot appear to human thought if the physical senses are deprived of their mesmeric action.
