God is pure Mind; He does not work through matter.
Mind needs no outside medium to express
its nature. All that Mind creates is wholly
of mental and spiritual substance, nothing less.

Man is pure Mind's idea. Not made from matter,
man needs no physical basis to sustain
his individual life. Mind's man and woman
pure thought in Mind eternally remain.

The pure ideas of Mind are not polluted,
infected, poisoned, pressured, fractured, strained
by matter. Their only atmosphere is boundless
intelligence, self-renewed and self-contained.

Pure Mind, controlling all in ordered action,
governs alike the atom and the star.
Wherever thought consents and hearts are willing,
its instant healings and adjustings are.

Mind has no place for matter in its eternal
purpose. But wholly spiritual, wholly good,
pure Mind's ideas, coperfect with their Maker,
unfold within pure Mind's infinitude.

Peter J. Henniker-Heaton
