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)

      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)

MONEY THOUGHT – 5 

      Now sense says that man and woman are separate. Why? Because it says there is more than one substance. Man is woman and woman is man. We have been leaving so-called man out of the question more or less. We cannot do that. Man is to be redeemed through the woman thought and visibly expressed, else it is not Science. Everything means something. Keep that closely with you. We have perceived, brought out, woman somewhat, but where is man? Now man is woman in reality and I shall lift you up, man, just as far as in my consciousness I can bring my manhood to light. We must find our manhood and through this, man will be taught to find woman­hood; they will be proven one. The way I do, is this. I look about me and see what I am calling man. What do I see? I see crippled, sick, sensual and low types. I see an atmosphere of tobacco and liquor, all forms of pleasure. I say to myself, “This is what I have been accepting as man. “I find the same state more or less of my thought of woman. I cannot stand any longer on my pinnacle of “I am better than thou,” but I must come into the valley and see what I have been calling my manhood and my woman­hood; all this is my consciousness.  Mary Baker Eddy (Carpenter, Gilbert, Essays On Christian Science, p.30)

      Death is a claim that there is another substance than God, good, and by handling money we handle every human belief of dis­ease. We trust upon intellect, money, friends, home, etc., and what is the result? Death. When we begin to see that money as money does not exist, but that it is the idea which supports, strengthens, cares for and sustains us in every way, we are beginning at the foundation.  Mary Baker Eddy (Carpenter, Gilbert, Essays On Christian Science, p.30)

MONEY THOUGHT – 3 

If there is any unity (and there is) then everything is good and we must begin low down to bring this out. We strike too high and try to demonstrate there, when our place is in the valley with the world. If all is good, then we must not partake of any thought of the world as real. We must come in contact with it, however. If money is substance expressed, then we are substance expressed. We cannot separate money (as idea) from the God-mind. Once see that clearly from demonstration and it becomes clearer and clearer that body cannot be separated from Mind, and we will, through a step by step process, arrive at the point of demonstration over death.  Mary Baker Eddy (Carpenter, Gilbert, Essays On Christian Science, p.30)

MONEY THOUGHT – 2 

      Money claims to give us substance; to be our very substance and life. “For without me,” it says, “you must die.” Science says, “With money as money, you die.” Every material object has the Truth back of it. So money is the God thought, substance expressed, and we cannot do without it as such. But every thought regarding money must be purified and put in its God-given place. We talk and talk of unity, but how little we are bringing it out. Science requires manifestation, and if we cannot manifest what we say is true, we are not living up to our word. I possess nothing and nothing possesses me but God, and through Him I have all, but not in any but the true sense.  Mary Baker Eddy (Carpenter, Gilbert, Essays On Christian Science, p.30)

MONEY THOUGHT – 1 

      In working on the money thought, do you see you are working on the god of the world thought, and that, therefore, it is the basis of belief of life in matter? Do you see that in order to do anything you must see the dollar perfect­ly dead? It does not exist. In other words, when a thing does not exist to us, we are become perfectly dead to all its claims. It cannot touch us. There we must learn to stand.  Mary Baker Eddy (Carpenter, Gilbert, Essays On Christian Science, p.30)
