Stilling the storms of mortal mind

The changeable nature of the carnal, or mortal, mind is like the waves of the sea—at times storm-tossed, choppy, sometimes calm but subject to gales. Mortal mind would act according to whims and fancies. Having no Principle or rule whereby to govern itself, it is uncertain in its moods and desires. The material forms germinated by mortal mind are subject to and manipulated by its unreliable disposition.

This is more readily recognized as we come to understand that there is no separation between mortal mind and its physical aspect termed matter or the material body. Physicality is but the outward manifestation of mortal thought. Our true nature as God's man is spiritual; and Spirit, God, is omnipresent. As this is understood, it is easy to see why Christian Science addresses this so-called mind in treating disease or other types of inharmony. When perturbed thought is pacified and purified by the serenity of divine Mind's all-inclusive love, the body naturally reflects better health and well-being.
