The Immediacy of Truth
Who has not longed for immediate help when confronted with a severe problem? Whatever the difficulty—lack of funds, tangled business or human relationships, loss of health, grief at the passing of a friend, loneliness—there is a right answer, and it can be found in the clear understanding of what God is and what man is.
Mrs. Eddy's definition of God in Science and Health reads in part: "Principle; Mind; Soul; Spirit; Life; Truth; Love; all substance; intelligence." Science and Health, p. 587; Man is the perfect reflection of God. When an individual looks into a mirror, his reflection appears simultaneously. There is no time lag. So it is with man, the perfect image of God. Man's reflection of God is forever true, and man does not have to wait for it to be true.
The immediacy of the power of God is always demonstrable, for man reflects the perfect law of Principle, the intelligence of Mind, the beauty of Soul, the animation of Spirit, the activity of Life, the faultlessness of Truth, and the tenderness of Love. Because man reflects God, one can demonstrate in his daily experience what God is, and thus resolve problems he may face. Each problem is a challenge to learn more of God and to grow into a greater understanding of His allness.
