ADDRESS ON THE FOURTH OF JULY AT PLEASANT VIEW, CONCORD, N. H., BEFORE 2,500 MEMBERS OF THE MOTHER CHURCH, 1897 – 2
Think of this inheritance! Heaven right here, where angels are as men, clothed more lightly, and men as angels who, burdened for an hour, spring into liberty, and the good they would do, that they do, and the evil they would not do, that they do not.
From the falling leaves of old-time faiths men learn a parable of the period, that all error, physical, moral, or religious, will fall before Truth demonstrated, even as dry leaves fall to enrich the soil for fruitage.
Sin, sickness, and disease flee before the evangel of Truth as the mountain mists before the sun. Truth is the tonic for the sick, and this medicine of Mind is not necessarily infinitesimal but infinite. Herein the mental medicine of divine metaphysics and the medical systems of allopathy and homoeopathy differ. Mental medicine gains no potency by attenuation, and its largest dose is never dangerous, but the more the better in every case. (Eddy, Mary Baker, Miscellaneous Writings, p,251:19-7)
