Only the real corrects the false

Absolute Truth-The Basis for Healing

"Absolute" embraces all that is complete, final, perfect, spiritual. God is absolute. His allness includes His idea, man, and constitutes the entirety of being. Man is one with God, yet distinct as His expression. Mind, God, is the source of all true activity and the essence of all that exists.

Human experience can never be absolute. It is matter-oriented and therefore cannot be more than and eternal. In fact, the human is never a genuine state of being. It can never be more than a limited, imperfect statement about true being, about God and His idea.

The conditions of mortal existence may seem very real, but they are actually misconceptions of the absolute and eternal. The Christ, God's true idea, enables us to see the truths of God and man in place of material beliefs. Sometimes we grasp a pertinent spiritual truth so vividly that false belief is instantly dispelled. At other times sustained mental argument—denial of error and affirmation of absolute facts—may be necessary.
