“Which of these two theories concerning man are you ready to accept? One is the mortal testimony, changing, dying, unreal. The other is the eternal and real evidence, bearing Truth’s signet, its lap piled high with immortal fruits.” (Science and Health, page 494)
We have a choice. We can decide consciously what we want to have and who we want to be. We can choose to believe in and be mesmerized by that which is mortal and dying, unreliable and uncertain, confusing and disturbing. We can allow that lying sense testimony to keep us feeling caged and limited and condemned.
Or we can see with our spiritual eyes, feel with our true hearts, and accept fully with our Christ-minds, that which is real, lasting, and perfectly good. We can recognize the pure and eternal man who God made, that man who is capable of all good, perpetually blessed, ready for Life that is divine and satisfying. We can perceive this reality of being and rejoice that it is ours both to express and to also know in others. The beautiful and enduring ideal is always ours to be and to see. The ugly and finite can be refuted, refused, and given up.
Let’s not be timid or slow about making this choice. Let’s accept that bounty that Truth has given us, that glory that is ours, that unlimited freedom that is our birthright. The wrong idea can seem so solid, but it is mortal mind’s conviction, not the certainty of Truth, of Soul, of God. Spirit declares us rightly, and that testimony is unshakeable, incontestable, and everything that we already have and already are.
