"Closer is He than breathing"

The poet Tennyson says of God, "Closer is He than breathing, and nearer than hands and feet." Fundamental to Christian Science is its teaching—and proof—that God and man coexist, are inseparable. Christ Jesus knew this, for he said, "I and my Father are one." John 10:30; Christian Science follows and explains the teachings of the master Christian. It shows man to be the perfect expression of God, Spirit, Mind.

Could anything be more dynamic in inspiring one to soar to the heights of spiritual achievement than the growing understanding of man's present and eternal at-one-ment with God? Mrs. Eddy once wrote in a letter, "Did you but know the sublimity of your hope; the infinite capacity of your being; the grandeur of your outlook, you would let error kill itself." Irving C. Tomlinson, Twelve Years with Mary Baker Eddy (Boston: The Christian Science Publishing Society, 1966), pp. 84-85 .
