Interpreting the Truth

Truth is always practical. But human misinterpretation of it sometimes makes it appear to be an untruth, or to be abstract and impractical.

Take, for example, the truth that man is timeless, ageless. He is because he reflects the infinite, eternal Mind, God. When we apply this truth correctly, we find that the effects of aging on the human body can be overcome. They are overcome, not because eternity is an abstraction, but because it is an all-encompassing truth that is demonstrable wherever it is rightly applied. There actually, in Truth, is no time. The effects of time yield because they are not of time itself, but of a belief in time—part of the belief in matter, of which time is a component.
