In many religious circles and philosophies, mystical experiences to find God are sought out through various traditions and practices. Mysticism begins with the concept that God is a mystery.
The concept that God is a secret revealed only to a select few, or only on rare occasions, would shut out the divine all-knowing God from His own universe. A desire to know God is a right desire, but here’s how Christian Science stands out from other systems of thought: Christian Science shows that neither the healing method of Christ, which it elucidates, nor God is a mystery. It teaches that Jesus’ spiritual approach in healing is scientifically applicable and universally available. Christian Science includes no rites, rituals, or mysticism. It is not a visionary psychological experience. It is not an attempt at an emotional high in order to open a link to the divine. It is the demonstration of what is always true and present—man’s oneness with God.
