The Things That Are Eternal

We learn through Christian Science that eternity is not extended time. Eternity has its own characteristics, and one of them is timelessness. Eternity is never involved with matter or material place. It is neither when nor then, where nor there. Whatever is associated with God is eternal. The least good we experience has always existed and cannot lose its ability to increase, since it reflects exhaustless, forever-unfolding Mind. The knowledge of these facts helps us to keep a perpetual grasp on whatever is right in our lives and not to lose it temporarily through our own fault or through any external evil influence.

Mary Baker Eddy says in "Unity of Good" (p. 8): "All that is beautiful and good in your individual consciousness is permanent. That which is not so is illusive and fading."
