     Man’s existence is a problem to be wrought in divine Science. What progress would a student of science make, if, when tired of mathematics or failing to demonstrate one rule readily, he should attempt to work out a rule farther on and more difficult — and this, because the first rule was not easily demonstrated? In that case he would be obliged to turn back and work out the previous example, before solving the advanced problem. Mortals have the sum of being to work out, and up, to its spiritual standpoint. They must work out of this dream or false claim of sensation and life in matter, and up to the spiritual realities of existence, before this false claim can be wholly dispelled. Committing suicide to dodge the question is not working it out. The error of supposed life and intelligence in matter, is dissolved only as we master error with Truth. Not through sin or suicide, but by overcoming temptation and sin, shall we escape the weariness and wickedness of mortal existence, and gain heaven, the harmony of being. (Eddy, Mary Baker, Miscellaneous Writings, p.52:21)

Dailies

May each day unfold to each one of you the manifold treasures of Christian Science, and you become the rich partakers thereof. Remember, that the power to heal is gained through peace, wisdom, love, dominion over ourselves, and good will toward men. You possess these graces of Spirit, or Christ power, only by loving God, Good, supremely. After this, cometh the recognition of but one Mind which enables you to know there is no power or presence that can resist Good, or can prevent your prayers being effectual. While you remain in this attitude of mind you are obedient to the Principle of your being, and naught can hinder your healing the sick and the sinner.   Mary Baker Eddy  (MBE Library, Advice To Healers, Vol. 2, p.56)

Dailies

Every day pray the Lord’s Prayer in the meaning and spirit thereof.


Thy Kingdom is come.  Here ask for the true sense of God and man to come to your understanding and into your affections. Ask for just what you need spiritually.  Ask to be made patient and loving when persecuted.  To be strictly honest speaking the truth and never misrepresenting in even the smallest thing. Ask to be gentle tempered and delivered from all anger or spirit of revenge. Ask for this daily bread to feed you. Under ”forgive my debts as I forgive my debtors” (ask to love your enemies and to forgive them) even as you need God’s dear pardon and deliverance from the condemnation and punishment. Under “Lead me not in temptation etc. (Pray for deliverance from yielding to the influence of mortal mind) either your own or anothers and the recognition of but one Mind.   Keep steadfast to this prayer and thought. Ask to know just how to do good and act wisely in your field of labor and that no sin or sinner can turn you aside from the right way or tempt you to stray.   Mary Baker Eddy    (MBE Library, Advice To Healers, Vol. 2, p.44)

     The belief that existence is contingent on matter must be met and mastered by Science, before Life can be understood and harmony obtained. (Eddy, Mary Baker, Science and Health With Key to the Scriptures, p.427:9)
