Causation mental   (Marginal heading)

Christian Science 1 explains all cause and effect as mental, not physical. It 2 lifts the veil of mystery from Soul and body. It 3 shows the scientific relation of man to God, 4 disentangles the interlaced ambiguities of being, and 5 sets free the imprisoned thought.  (114:24-27)  M

Man governed by Mind  (Marginal heading)          

” All that really exists is the divine Mind and its idea, and in this Mind the entire being is found harmonious and eternal.

“The straight and narrow way 1 is 2 to see and 3 acknowledge this fact, 4 yield to this power, and 5 follow the leadings of truth.”   (151:28)  M

Superiority to sickness and sin  (Marginal heading)

To hold yourself superior to sin, because God made you superior to it and governs man, is true wisdom.  1 To fear sin 2 is  3 to misunderstand the power of Love and the divine Science of being in man’s relation to God, — 4 to doubt His government and 5 distrust His omnipotent care. (231:21-25)  M

1 To fear sin

       2 is

              3 to misunderstand the power of Love

                     4 to doubt His government

                            5 distrust His omnipotent care

These errors are downward spiraling.  Four of the five verbs above need to be reversed!  This lifts thought up out of the five senses.

Fear sin → love goodness

Is – remains as is

To misunderstand → to understand

To doubt → to rely on

To distrust → to trust

Now apply the positive infinitives:

                            5 To trust His omnipotent care.

                     4 To rely on His government,

              3 To understand the power of Love,

       2 Is

1 To love

The one only way  (Marginal heading)

“Self-love is more opaque than a solid body. In patient obedience to a patient God, 1 let us 2 labor 3 to dissolve with the universal solvent of Love the adamant of error, — self-will, self-justification, and self-love, — which 4 wars against spirituality and 5 is the law of sin and death.”  (SH 242:15)  M

True life eternal   (Marginal heading)

 

Life is eternal. We 1 should find this out, and 2 begin the demonstration thereof. Life and goodness are immortal. 3 Let us then shape our views of existence into loveliness, 4 freshness, and 5 continuity, rather than into age and blight.  (SH 246:27 M

                            5 Let us then shape our views of existence into continuity.

                     4 Let us then shape our views of existence into freshness

“What is the model before mortal mind? Is it 1 imperfection, 2 joy, 3 sorrow, 4 sin, 5 suffering? Have you accepted the mortal model? Are you reproducing it? Then you are haunted in your work by vicious sculptors and hideous forms. Do you not hear from all mankind of the imperfect model? The world is holding it before your gaze continually. The result is that you are liable to follow those lower patterns, limit your life-work, and adopt into your experience the angular outline and deformity of matter models.”  (SH 248:15)  M

 

“To remedy this, we must first 1 turn our gaze in the right direction, and then 2 walk that way. We must 3 form perfect models in thought and 4 look at them continually, or we shall never 5 carve them out in grand and noble lives.“ (SH 248:25-29)  M

The tares and wheat  (Marginal heading)

“The temporal and unreal never touch the eternal and real. The mutable and imperfect never touch the immutable and perfect. The inharmonious and self-destructive never touch the harmonious and self-existent. These 1 opposite qualities are the tares and wheat, which 2 never really mingle, though (to mortal sight) they 3 grow side by side until the harvest; then, Science 5 separates the wheat from the tares, through the 4 realization of God as ever present and of man as reflecting the divine likeness.” (SH 300:13)  M
