Measuring Our Years

Christian Science offers very little comfort to us if we are seeking eternal youthfulness in a material sense of life. But it does show us how to demonstrate that real Life is ageless. It teaches us that God is Mind, Soul, Spirit, the only Life, and that each of us is in reality the reflection of God.

Soul is the synonym for God which denotes true self-consciousness—Mind not only having spiritual ideas but being conscious of itself as the Mind, or Spirit, of all. Man is the reflection of God; therefore, each individual is conscious of himself as an idea of Mind. Each individual reflects Soul.

Soul, being God, is timeless, immortal. As human beings, we have the freedom to acknowledge Soul as Life and to find our true selfhood as the reflection of Soul. The truth of being is radiating everywhere, as energy radiates from the sun. In some way every individual feels the mental force of Mind-generated truth. The process by which we acknowledge this truth is called prayer. Christ Jesus, who fully demonstrated Truth, began the Lord's Prayer with the acknowledgment of Spirit as Father (Matt. 6:9), "Our Father which art in heaven."
