Quality of Thought Is the Key

As we spiritualize the quality of our thought, we improve our bodies and our present experience. Mrs. Eddy writes in Science and Health: "Mind, not matter, is causation. A material body only expresses a material and mortal mind. A mortal man possesses this body, and he makes it harmonious or discordant according to the images of thought impressed upon it." Science and Health, p. 208;

One's motives and deepest desires, the thought-qualities that he himself cultivates, are of paramount importance to his well-being. Fear, selfishness, dishonesty, sensuality, impatience, dissatisfaction, and hate, for example, are all detrimental to one's well-being. On the other hand, peace, love, honesty, satisfaction, spirituality, and joy are conducive to a harmonious and healthy existence. Many believe that material conditions can preclude their expressing these healthy qualities of thought. However, Christian Science has shown this concept to be erroneous by proving many times over that causation is mental, that circumstances are directly related to thought, and that they change as one's thought and motives change.
