Talking with God

Is communion with God possible? Yes. You might say that it is "built into" the very nature of reality.

I HAVE always loved the Bible accounts of prophets and others who heard the voice of God and talked with Him, and as a pupil in a Christian Science Sunday School I used to wonder how I could do this.

In the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health, Mrs. Eddy writes, "The Soul-inspired patriarchs heard the voice of Truth, and talked with God as consciously as man talks with man."  Science and Health, p. 308. Elsewhere in the same book she explains the spiritual reality underlying this possibility: "The intercommunication is always from God to His idea, man."  Ibid., p. 284.
