The Lesson of the Prism
Have you ever experimented with a glass prism? If so, you know that these prisms bend the rays of sunlight, enabling one to see clearly and distinctly each of the colors of the spectrum present in a ray of light. And yet, without the prism one looks at a ray of light and never sees its colors.
Just as we need a prism in order to see the vibrant colors of the spectrum that are present in each beam of white light, so Christian Science—God's prism—gives us an understanding of God's allness through these seven synonyms for Him: Mind, Principle, Spirit, Soul, Life, Truth, Love. All of these synonyms are necessary to form a correct and complete concept of God. In Retrospection and Introspection Mrs. Eddy writes, "Science is the prism of Truth, which divides its rays and brings out the hues of Deity." Ret., p. 35;
God is not some far-off being who sends both good and evil. He is ever-present Love, filling all space, leaving no room for evil of any kind. He is all-knowing Mind, the only cause, who made all that was made, and His creation is all good. We can see Him as divine Principle, the supreme Lawgiver, governing and upholding the universe, including man, in perfect order and harmony; as Soul, in which is established the identity and individuality of every idea—each precious, purposeful, and pure.
