There is Only One Mind!

For generations mankind have accepted the belief that the world is inhabited by individuals with minds of their own and capable of being channels for both good and evil. The discovery of Christian Science by Mrs. Eddy brought the revelation that there is in fact but one Mind, whereby only good flows into human experience, and that man is the full and perfect expression of this divine Mind, God.

Mind is one of the synonyms Mrs. Eddy gives for God, and throughout her writings she explains how the understanding of the fact of the one Mind when faithfully applied eliminates from human experience all that is unlike good. She writes: "There can be but one Mind, because there is but one God; and if mortals claimed no other Mind and accepted no other, sin would be unknown. We can have but one Mind, if that one is infinite." Science and Health, p. 469 Can we not see from this all-embracing statement that the acceptance of a mortal belief in a mind separate from God is the channel through which aggressive mental suggestion claims to create discord in human experience?

When sin, sickness, and death appear to be part of one's experience, the responsibility of the individual lies in learning to recognize that they are not real but are false beliefs claiming to operate through mortal mind and to attach a material identity to man. When we understand these facts, we see that false belief stems from the acceptance of the theory that there are circumstances and conditions existing apart from God. This theory ignores the great truth that God is All and omnipotent.
