Focus with the lens of Science

When someone looks at the Milky Way through a telescope, he sees countless pinpricks of light as hundreds of thousands of stars come into focus. The telescope may point to a portion of sky where the naked eye sees only pale nebulosity. The lens, however, gathers the faint light coming from immense distances and brings it to a focal point—where the human eye can see the concentrated light as individual stars.

The vastness, splendor, and variety of the physical heavens give only a hint of the magnitude and glory of divine Mind's spiritual realm. We can bring this divine glory into our experience if we understand the spiritual laws of Christian Science. These laws, somewhat like the lens in a telescope, bring into focus the real, spiritual universe and give us an enlarged sense of God's power. As Mrs. Eddy states, "The lens of Science magnifies the divine power to human sight; and we then see the allness of Spirit, therefore the nothingness of matter."
