Perpetual Vitality

A difficulty often experienced by people is a diminishing of energy, ability, and inspiration that nags at them. A decline of vitality could not occur if people understood that man is not a mortal, separated from God, as Christian Science explains, but an immortal, inseparable from Him as His emanation, or reflection.

Mary Baker Eddy says in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 250), "Man is not God, but like a ray of light which comes from the sun, man, the outcome of God, reflects God." The sun's ray is constantly appearing in its full energy and ability to radiate light and warmth. This radiance is never interrupted; it never fails, never ceases to express its source. It illustrates the nature of man, "the outcome of God." Man's Christly energies are ever vigorous and perpetually sustained by their source.
