“Intelligent matter is an impossibility.” (Science and Health, page 409)
Let’s not give matter so much credit. Let’s stop investing it with intelligence, with the ability to tell us anything, to push us around, to propose ideas and conclusions. Matter has no mind. It has no discerning characteristics or means of thinking. It is not an ego or a power to fight, hope to conquer, or to submit to.
Intelligence belongs to Mind, to God. Mind expresses Its own ideas, and all of them must comply with that one Mind, must obey and necessarily harmonize. Matter and its supposed physical body and sense testimony have no ring of truth, no wisdom, and can’t argue for itself. We can and must stop bestowing matter with a power and intelligence and control that it can’t possibly have. God is the controller and keeper. He is infinite Spirit, and that Spirit is the substance of our being, behaving always according to the properties of Spirit—right, limitless, beautiful, immortal, ageless, timeless, unconfined, and free.
The material body is not a worthy opponent. It is never going to win a debate so do we need to waste our time listening to its claims and arguments? Do we need to rile ourselves up struggling with it, fighting with it, hating its behavior, questioning its intentions? Would we not be wiser to remember that matter is without mind, without power, and that the truth of our perfect being has already won because it is the Truth? We can know and love that our bodies and lives are under the control of divine intelligence alone–that spiritual awareness that is God, and so absolutely perfect and present and incontestable Love, all that is right and natural and good.
