“Before deciding that the body, matter, is disordered, one should ask, ‘Who art thou that repliest to Spirit? Can matter speak for itself, or does it hold the issues of life?’” (Science and Health, page 181)
Let’s take a pause and ask these questions when discord seems to appear physically or in our experience or that of the world. Can matter, which has no Mind, no Truth, no creative power at all, decide our condition, distort our beauty, disturb our natural and God-given peace? Is there Life in that which is finite, without consciousness, without Spirit, which is Life?
The sense testimony that would try to come to us as a problem with a probable cause, a possible diagnosis, and some likely prognosis, is not reasonable. It doesn’t present something that must be accepted and then dealt with. Instead, we can turn to the voice of Truth, the presentation of Spirit and its eternal testimony, and deny the testimony of that which is mindless and loveless.
We are not pushed around by matter. We can’t be mesmerized by a powerless thing, a nothing claiming to be something. We are the children of God, of Spirit. We can take our stand without fear or doubt and with perfect confidence against the false testifier. Our condition is what God sees and knows and what He feels. Our body can only experience what Truth creates and affirms: perfection, ease, comfort, normalcy, natural function, loveliness, and Life that is as limitless as Spirit.
