Our Place in God's Allness

Beholding God's spiritual and wholly good universe, we experience the atmosphere of heaven—peace and harmony—right where we are. Mrs. Eddy calls this understanding of the kingdom of heaven "the grand necessity of existence." Her full statement reads: "The great miracle, to human sense, is divine Love, and the grand necessity of existence is to gain the true idea of what constitutes the kingdom of heaven in man." Science and Health, p. 560; Christian Science illustrates how this gaining brings healing and regeneration.

The material senses testify to life in matter. They suggest all sorts of pollutants. But whether it calls itself a germ, a difficult individual, a hopeless situation, or an allergen, the material sense testimony is no more than mortal mind's insinuation that there is something outside God's creation, something beyond God's allness. There can be nothing outside all, nothing added to all. Nor can anything be subtracted from God's infinity. There is absolutely no place for error! "I know that, whatsoever God doeth, it shall be for ever: nothing can be put to it, nor any thing taken from it: and God doeth it, that men should fear before him." Eccl. 3:14; This biblical truth is assurance of our permanent completeness as God's ideas and brings protection, security, and harmony.

Affirming our immortal place in this omnipresent kingdom, we can annihilate beliefs of contagion and disease. Discordant relationships can be harmonized through the understanding that the kingdom of heaven includes everyone. As we claim and demonstrate the abundance of heaven's good, we begin to erase poverty and beliefs of lack. As we aver the purity of man and the universe, we counteract beliefs of infection, which would suggest the existence of disease agents.
