God's ever-operative laws

When my state-of-the-art printer for my computer began turning out a lot of indecipherable gibberish, and finally refusing to work at all, I called the nearest factory-authorized repair shop and made an appointment to take it in. I also began thinking about God's law being available to everyone. In particular, I thought about this statement in Science and Health: "A knowledge of the Science of being develops the latent abilities and possibilities of man. It extends the atmosphere of thought, giving mortals access to broader and higher realms. It raises the thinker into his native air of insight and perspicacity" (p. 128). This affirmation has been a great inspiration on many occasions, and it was on this one as well. I knew that even though I had no knowledge of the inner working of this printing device, I would be able to perceive whether or not to proceed with any repair work.

Christ Jesus' teachings refer to man's unity with God, which exists because man is actually God's, or Mind's, spiritual reflection, His means of expressing Himself. Therefore man has constant access to all of the ideas of Mind. I knew that even a little grasp of the true nature of my being would enable me to discuss this problem intelligently with the technician.
