Absent from the body and present with the Lord is not ecstacy or trance, but a realization of the science of Life, as laid down in this volume; it is obedience to the law of God, governing the body by Spirit instead of matter; therefore our Master said: “After this manner pray ye”
Our Father, which art in heaven,
Hallowed be thy name;
Thy kingdom come,
Thy will be done on earth as it is done in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
And forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors, And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil,
For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory forever.” (Eddy, Mary Baker, Science and Health, 1st ed., p.295)
