“…God is all, therefore…matter is nothing beyond an image in mortal mind.” (Science and Health, page 116)
Matter simply has no place or ability to be anything besides a delusion, illusion. God is All and in all. He is not made of matter nor does He express in quality a single limitation. Material substance must always be finite. Spiritual substance (reality) is always infinite, always available, always right.
Mortal thinking—that which denies the Truth but never changes it—would prop up another god to justify its fears and doubts and pains and limits. Matter is that god and it is just as unreal and powerless as were the graven images that were worshipped in days of old. Matter and its so-called laws have nothing to do with reality, and so they only apply to their own nothingness, never to man and his nature, worth, and life.
Leave the material image to mortal mind and let it have its dream. You are not a mortal. You are in possession of an awakened mind, one which knows God’s own consciousness, the very expressed idea of the universe. We are aware of Spirit and we know that its laws are loving, freeing, and supreme over all. The illusion has no power to change God’s intelligence and love, and so it isn’t an image we ever need to dwell on or accept. Instead, let’s realize our unconfined nature, our spiritual life, and that which is fully awake to blessings and ready always for gratitude and joy!
