Trust what you know is true

"I'm just fine"

Frequently we hear the greeting "How are you?" Usually the reply is "I'm just fine!" But often the words are only a mask. Perhaps one really isn't feeling "just fine."

Even so, when someone says, "I'm fine," his declaration is absolutely true. As a spiritual idea of God, a blessed child of the Father-Mother, he is just fine. His perfection is already established and needs only to be demonstrated. Mrs. Eddy tells us: "Man's genuine selfhood is recognizable only in what is good and true. Man is neither self-made nor made by mortals. God created man." Science and Health, p. 294;

If we are struggling with sickness, we can know with certainty that the difficulty is merely an illusion of mortal mind, of false material consciousness. It is a lie about us, about our true individuality as an expression of the divine Mind. Mrs. Eddy says, "Mortal mind is the worst foe of the body, while divine Mind is its best friend." ibid., p. 176; With God-given authority we can affirm that all is well; that we are just fine because man is never less than perfect and this perfection is unimpeachable.
