God’s system

As the sun appears to rise and to set,
so man appears to be born and to die,
            . . . and yet . . .
That is not true in the realm of the real
            . . . and why?
The solar system works on a different plan,
and that also applies to God’s eternal man,
whom God created as very good—
the spiritual sense of true man- and womanhood,
above the sod, the dust, and the clay,
apart from the Adam/Eve/serpent play
that takes place on Eden’s dream-stage,
where man tills the soil and dies from old age.

Divine Science, the Science of Mind
is the truth about all mankind,
where God’s law of goodness creates, governs all,
where man and woman do not fall—
they are never separated from creative good,
where the “eternal unfolding of Life” 1 is understood.
