There is no one known to my personality, within my circle or without it, naming the name of Christian Science – loyal or disloyal –  that can ignorantly or maliciously malpractice upon me. Neither can malpractice or mesmerism prevent me from recognizing such error and handling it.  Mary Baker Eddy

METAPHYSICAL HEALING – 2

      The Truth of being is harmonious and the reality is harmony. There is no reality in discord, sickness, or death; they are illusions, error, the belief of falsehoods that vanish when the truth is realized.

      Fear is from ignorance and from false beliefs and false statements, or the absence of Truth and understanding. Its influ­ence is as certain and positive on mortal mind, or materiality, even though not realized, as when one is groping alone in abso­lute darkness in a very strange place. Thus fear insensible and sensible must have its antidote in Truth and understanding to save materiality from the sufferings of discord and inharmony, from sickness, sin and death.  Mary Baker Eddy

METAPHYSICAL HEALING – 1 

      God is Principle, Soul, Spirit, Life. There is no other life or intelligence. No discord or inharmony exists therein, thereby, or emanates therefrom. Immortal man is the offspring of God, Soul, of immortality, and not of mortality nor mortal man. He is spiritual; and the image or likeness of God. Nothing is true or real but God and His idea, which is shadowed forth in the eternal existence, or spirituality, of all existence, of all God’s crea­tion. Mortal things are but the semblance of the true idea of God and, therefore, nothing in themselves. God, Spirit, Soul, cannot suffer. Mortal body or matter cannot suffer or make its own conditions, nor cause pain in Spirit or Soul. Life is not in the mortal body, nor is it in anything mortal; it is independent of, above and around all things that seem to have life, and any life they have is through the influence of Soul, intelligence, Spirit, Life. Life is everlasting. It does not lead to death, for there is no death in reality, and Life cannot be destroyed. Error (or a belief in mortal mind of good and evil) only leads to suffering, sickness and death. Error, belief of mortal mind, of counterfeit mind, makes all of its own diseases and sufferings. Neither it nor they have any real existence, no more than the supposed fact communicated by a falsehood, and they should disappear when the Truth is uttered and its proofs presented as readily in one case as the other.  Mary Baker Eddy

METAPHYSICAL HEALING, August 16, 1876 

      Material man and all material things are but mortality, in or of themselves without life. They are the passing reflection of the true idea of God. They impart a feeble and imperfect idea of the true and perfect spiritual idea of God. They are animate only through reflected Life. Like reflections in the mirror, they only have action or motion in answer to the volition of their Princi­ple, and their Principle is the idea of God, and the substance from whence comes this idea or true reflection is God. Thus the human body, mortal matter, is nothing, the very essence of noth­ing, having neither substance, life or intelligence. Substance is without change or decay. Life and intelligence are not embraced within mortal flesh.  Mary Baker Eddy

METAPHYSICAL SCIENCE, August, 1876 – 2 

      Truth and reality are found only in God and His idea. Mate­rial man and all material things are but mortality, and without life in themselves. They are the semblance merely of the true idea of God. They are animate only through reflected Life, through or by the eternal spiritual Life; like shadows they only have motion, action, volition, in answer to the volition of their Principle, which is the idea of God whose substance is God. Thus the human body, mortal matter, is nothing, the very essence of nothing. It has neither life, substance nor intelligence. Sub­stance is without change and decay. Life and intelligence are of God, universal Soul, Spirit, Mind, and are not embraced in mortal flesh.  Mary Baker Eddy

METAPHYSICAL SCIENCE, August, 1876 – 1 

      God is Principle, Soul, Spirit, Life, intelligence, harmony. There is no other life or intelligence, and no harmony from any other source. No discord or harmony emanates therefrom, or exists therein, or thereby. Immortal man is of God, Soul, of immortality, and not of mortality, nor of mortal man. He is spiritual and in the likeness of God, yea, Godlike, and — embracing the eternal existence, or spirituality of all existence, of all God’s crea­tion — is the idea of God, the shadow, the image, the reflection, the sign that points to God.  Mary Baker Eddy

OUR PLACE – 2    

 If this were understood, many warfares would cease; envy and jealousy be exchanged for the peaceful gleams of joy and grati­tude, and, mingling with the light of love, would bring to man new health and happiness, — yea, Life immortal.

     We never see the stars vieing for each other’s places, nor the sun and moon at variance; nor have we seen a Paul take Peter’s place, or John the place of our Master, or vice versa. Each fills its own, her own, his own place, whether they have knowledge of it or not; and I, for one, would be content in the sweet consciousness that I have a place with Thee, eternal Love, and however grand or great, humble or small, I am of Thy crea­tion; therefore Thine.  Mary Baker Eddy
