Three R's and learning truths that heal

As reading, 'riting, and 'rithmetic aren't the all of secular schooling, so receptivity, retention, and removal do not constitute the full method for learning the healing truths of Christian Science and how to apply them. But they are basic to it. "The way to extract error from mortal mind is to pour in truth through flood-tides of Love," Science and Health, p. 201; writes Mrs. Eddy. And her books are replete with healing truths gleaned from her God-inspired Bible study and her spiritually oriented thinking and living which prepared her to receive the revelation of divine Science. As we search the Bible and her books, we find these truths; as we live them, we understand them more fully and they heal and transform our lives.

It may seem to us the truth is coming from our reading, but more is involved. Christ Jesus said, "What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them." Mark 11:24; To "believe that [we] receive them" calls for spiritual understanding. As we understand that true consciousness includes the truths of being, and claim this consciousness to be our own, we find ourselves responding to and corresponding with spiritual unfoldment.
