Demonstrating Eternal Life

"Life is eternal," writes Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures. "We should find this out, and begin the demonstration thereof." Science and Health, p. 246; How can one begin today to demonstrate eternal Life? The passage above continues: "Life and goodness are immortal. Let us then shape our views of existence into loveliness, freshness, and continuity, rather than into age and blight."

We read on the same page: "Man, governed by immortal Mind, is always beautiful and grand. Each succeeding year unfolds wisdom, beauty, and holiness." One who loves and obeys God is not doomed to go through a period of decline but is free to go on and on expressing newness, vitality, and potential.

The erroneous, material belief of age would make us prone to look backward, live in the past, dwell on an accumulation of memories. We should pray to know that age and decline have no place in man's real experience. Spiritual man exercises perfect dominion, and he is the constant fulfillment of promise.
