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  (Carpenter, Gilbert, Essays On Christian Science, p.75)
