“The scientific government of the body must be attained through the divine Mind. It is impossible to gain control over the body in any other way.” (Science and Health, page 167)
Our body may seem our burden at times, acting out of accord with health and mobility and comfort and ease. We may feel as if this material sense of ourselves can’t be reined in, but is left to its own devices and to time and to material remedies and adjustments. But we each have the right to regain control, to be in the driver’s seat of our own well-being.
While will-power may seem our only choice if we are to be in charge of our bodies, it is “impossible” to gain a real control in that way. The benevolent and right government of the body can come only through a release to the divine Mind’s control, not through mere human will. God is not frustrated or confused or disturbed or fearful. He has no latent issues that need to be handled and no dark fears about the continuity of Life. The divine Mind is always wise, loving, and infallibly right.
Let’s give up the belief that our body is out of control or that we must personally control its functions, its capacity, its durability. The divine Mind alone is in control, and His loving control over you and your glorious, pure, perfect body, is your sweet release to the life that is Life—free, natural, enduring, comfortable, and good.
