It is good to be afflicted, to drink in the experience by which we are made mete for the Master’s crown. Love is in itself a purifier, and if we reach its glorious behest we must be purified in the process. Mary Baker Eddy (Carpenter, Gilbert, Collectanea of Items By and About Mary Baker Eddy
There is but one law, the law of God. There is but one court, the court of heaven. It is a court of absolute justice, whose decision is final. Human concepts and opinions have been formulated into so-called laws and human courts have administered these laws, but God is the final arbiter, and supreme Judge. Law means orderly and continuous activity. Therefore, the active energy emanating from Mind is law, and is eternally established. Mind, or active infinite intelligence, is of necessity law. All true active thought, motive, and purpose are in divine Mind.
Animal magnetism, ignorant or malicious, you cannot separate me from God, good. You cannot dim my spiritual perception. You cannot make a law that I cannot heal myself or others. God is my refuge; the only intelligence, the only power, the only Mind. Animal magnetism is not intelligence, is not mind nor any of its attributes. Mary Baker Eddy (Carpenter, Gilbert, Collectanea Of Items By and About Mary Baker Eddy, p.109)
January 8, 1904. Jesus said, ‘Watch and pray.’ The watching comes first. You must watch, see the enemy before it comes and strikes; destroy before it approaches. Mary Baker Eddy (Oakes, Richard, Course In Divinity and General Collectanea, p.18)

Once Mrs. Eddy declared, “The time will come and I feel it will be soon, when Christian Scientists will not have to make a conscious effort in giving treatment, for through the constant desire and endeavor for a Christian life, their consciousness will have become so purified, that healing will go forth from them as naturally as the perfume from flowers, to those who are ready for it.” Mary Baker Eddy (Carpenter, Jr., Gilbert, 500 Watching Points, #324)
The perfect and divine law of adjustment working through the ever-present and eternal law of attraction is bringing to me that which belongs to me. Love is everywhere. Abide in Love. Nothing can touch or harm you in Love. Know that you live in Love. Love is God as Life itself. Take this understanding with you and bless others with Love. Remember, my dear, that there will be nothing come to you that you cannot overcome. The victory is yours by inheritance; claim it and use it as yours. Mary Baker Eddy (Carpenter, Gilbert, Essays on Christian Science, p.58)
Animal magnetism does not deceive me. It is not my consciousness. I do not hear it argue, neither can it argue. It is neither mind, life nor intelligence; neither person, place nor thing. Try to realize the omnipresence of Life and Love, the inbreathing of His presence. Arouse yourself to a clear sense of God’s power, the eternal and ever-conscious Mind which knows only Life. Mary Baker Eddy (Carpenter, Gilbert, Collectanea of Items By and About Mary Baker Eddy, p.109)
