The Infinite Capacities of Mind

A commonly accepted view about contemporary technological societies is that the vast amount of knowledge they generate tends to frustrate and confuse the individual. How can people understand and utilize the reservoir of knowledge?

Christian Science has answers for the demands inherent in progress. Concurrently with the increase in material knowledge, this Science is making available to humanity a deeper, ever-growing understanding of the laws of God. Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, writes: "The term Science, properly understood, refers only to the laws of God and to His government of the universe, inclusive of man. From this it follows that business men and cultured scholars have found that Christian Science enhances their endurance and mental powers, enlarges their perception of character, gives them acuteness and comprehensiveness and an ability to exceed their ordinary capacity." And she says of a knowledge of the Science of being, "It raises the thinker into his native air of insight and perspicacity." Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 128;

What limitless possibilities present themselves when one becomes conscious of "his native air of insight and perspicacity"! Such awareness pierces the false beliefs of ignorance and inferiority. It reveals God as divine Mind, Principle, undeviating, unchanging, irreversible. It further reveals God as Love, establishing and maintaining harmony in man and the universe. These are facts that can be proved.
