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)
WATCH – Mental malpractice must be met daily by all the students; met by your mental protest that breaks the so-called law of a lie, or you are liable to be affected by this lie all unconsciously. Dear one, remember this. Our Master said, “Had the good man of the house watched, his house would not have been broken open.” Mary Baker Eddy
(Carpenter, Gilbert, Watches, Prayers and Arguments, p.60)
ARGUMENT – Know every day that the world is ready for Christian Science. Mary Baker Eddy (Carpenter, Gilbert, Watches, Prayers and Arguments, p.41)
ADDRESS ON THE FOURTH OF JULY AT PLEASANT VIEW, CONCORD, N. H., BEFORE 2,500 MEMBERS OF THE MOTHER CHURCH, 1897 – 1
My beloved brethren, who have come all the way from the Pacific to the Atlantic shore, from the Palmetto to the Pine Tree State, I greet you; my hand may not touch yours to-day, but my heart will with tenderness untalkable.
His Honor, Mayor Woodworth, has welcomed you to Concord most graciously, voicing the friendship of this city and of my native State – loyal to the heart’s core to religion, home, friends, and country.
To-day we commemorate not only our nation’s civil and religious freedom, but a greater even, the liberty of the sons of God, the inalienable rights and radiant reality of Christianity, whereof our Master said: “The works that I do shall he do;” and, “The kingdom of God cometh not with observation” (with knowledge obtained from the senses), but “the kingdom of God is within you,” – within the present possibilities of mankind. (Eddy, Mary Baker, Miscellaneous Writings, p,251:1-19)
What comprehends and expresses all? 518:27-29 (1st .)
There is but one power in the universe, and that is God. Good is omnipotent. Apparent evils are not entities or things of themselves; they are simply the apparent absence of good, just as darkness is an apparent absence of light. But God, our good, is omnipresent, therefore, the apparent absence of good – evil – is unreal; it is only an appearance of evil. There is no reality, life nor intelligence in matter for the ‘things which are seen are temporal, but the things which are not seen are eternal.’ Mary Baker Eddy (Oakes, Richard, Course In Divinity and General Collectanea, p.264-265)
