The affluence of Love
Most of us would agree that great wealth does not necessarily bring happiness. For life to be positive, progressive, successful, and harmonious our need lies deeper. We have to find the source of spiritual good, which is not subject to fluctuation, diminution, or decay.
"Godliness with contentment is great gain,"I Tim. 6:6; the Bible tells us. Christian Science explains that godliness is not an impossible ideal. In fact it evidences the real status of man as God's reflection. God is divine Mind, and Mind is Love, and man is the idea of Mind, divine Love. As Mind's idea, man is inseparable from God; the recipient of all good, man reflects God's wholeness, and so is always in harmony with the great governing Principle of the universe. Reflecting God, man is Godlike.
To gain an understanding of Spirit as the only true substance is of highest importance to our well-being, for this understanding reveals spiritual good—present, imperishable, limitless. This is our true capital. "Spirit, the synonym of Mind, Soul, or God, is the only real substance,"Science and Health, p. 468; Mrs. Eddy writes.
