WATCH – Repeat the following affirmations silently several times each day, not with strained anxiety to get something out of them, but trying to realize the meaning of the words:

All is harmony; there is no discord.
All is health; there is no sickness.
All is Spirit; there is no matter.
All is joy; there is no sorrow.
All is Truth; there is no falsehood.
All is faith; there is no fear.
All is Life; there is no death.
All is Love; there is no hate. Mary Baker Eddy (Carpenter, Gilbert, Watches, Prayers and Arguments, p.11)
MONEY THOUGHT – 8
Every sense of repulsion is making a reality of whatever it may be. Man cannot be separated from woman and we must visibly manifest it now, or we shall never reach the ultimate. Woman has to learn that she needs, and in reality has, her manhood and that is in Spirit. Then she must come down and carry the illumination of the star there and bring up her manhood. Mary Baker Eddy (Carpenter, Gilbert, Essays On Christian Science, p.31)

One day Mrs. Eddy said to a student, “Are you working?” He began to tell of his hours of study and work. She said, “When you see old age, do you declare that Life is eternal activity, beauty and joy? When you see the leaves falling and hear the wind blow, do you declare that there is no change, decay or cold? When you see deformity and disease, do you declare that man is made in the image and likeness of God?”
The student answered, “Mrs. Eddy, I am not working.” Mary Baker Eddy

MONEY THOUGHT – 7
Now go back to the money thought and see if in any way we unite with money as money, we are uniting with matter as matter in every form and to sin in one point is to sin in all. If we unite with the money thought, we unite with the world thought of separate substance as man and woman. If I unite with that thought, I take the thought of mortality instead of spirituality and I stand aside making sin real and I say I cannot contaminate my purity. It is not purity, then. I cannot make anything a separate substance from God. Then how shall I meet the thought of sin but by keeping closely at home in my own thought and purifying every belief and then, when manhood comes to me, I can truly live because I see I am one with him. Mary Baker Eddy (Carpenter, Gilbert, Essays On Christian Science, p.31)

Then I begin to look up to Science and hear what it tells me man and woman are, and I go to work to purify myself from the wrong concept. I cut myself off from every person’s thought in every way, never allowing myself a moment in their thought unless to help. But I go on purifying myself of a false human concept, and when help comes from me to another, it is because I have brought out my manhood and womanhood. I see what a dreadful mistake we have been making and thwarting our dearest desires by looking at things from a mortal standpoint. Jesus never did. He rebuked the Pharisees because they said, “This is good and that is evil. How awful it is. I would not do it.” So they stood aside and would not let their thoughts touch it in any way on account of their great purity. Are we very different today? No, not even we Christian Scientists. Mary Baker Eddy (Carpenter, Gilbert, Essays On Christian Science, p.30-31)
