Or we could choose to look to something less obvious but more compelling—the higher perspective modeled by Jesus, who showed that a spiritual view of existence has a consistently healing impact. 

Christian Science offers an arresting and helpful explanation of how the spiritual understanding of reality that inspired everything that Jesus did makes sense of our universe by showing that God, infinite Spirit, is both its center and circumference. And with this perspective comes a promise of individual healing and global progress.
