How do you "look away from the body"?

As I was reading the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy, I came upon this statement: "Look away from the body into Truth and Love, the Principle of all happiness, harmony, and immortality." Science and Health, p. 261.

I had often read this sentence before. In fact, it was one to which I had turned many times; I had always thought that it was such a wonderful statement. But in reading it this particular time, I was challenged by the thought, How can I actually "look away from the body into Truth and Love"? How can I follow this admonition and prove the truth? The next line gave the answer: "Hold thought steadfastly to the enduring, the good, and the true, and you will bring these into your experience proportionably to their occupancy of your thoughts."
