Who wants a better body?

Books, magazines, newspapers, television, and even much of everyday conversation deal extensively with the subject of the human body—how to improve, maintain, and beautify it. But even at its best the human body presents limitations and vulnerability to assaults of fatigue, stress, age, chemical reaction, contagion, and the like. One may wonder, indeed, if there isn't a better body than the kind humanity is forever trying to improve and doctor.

The Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, Mary Baker Eddy, certainly thought so. In Science and Health she asks the question "What are body and Soul?" Her answer gives us food for thought, for she does not refer to the body at all. She begins by saying, "Identity is the reflection of Spirit, the reflection in multifarious forms of the living Principle, Love." Science and Health, p. 477.
