You can’t be isolated from God

In recent months, government and health officials have asked people to isolate themselves from others as much as possible in order to help prevent the spread of the coronavirus. My friends and I have willingly complied. 

Still, I’ve wondered, Is there something more I can do? Yes! I can isolate my thoughts from fearful images. In fact, staying inside can’t do much to make me feel protected or even to help others if I’m ruminating over reports regarding causes and symptoms of the disease. As the Christian Science textbook points out, “Christian Science explains all cause and effect as mental, not physical” (Mary Baker Eddy, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 114). It naturally follows that the cause of disease is mental, not physical. It comes from the belief that existence is material.
