“The description of man as purely physical, or as both material and spiritual,–but in either case dependent upon his physical organization,–is the Pandora box from which all ills have gone forth, especially despair.” (Science and Health, page 170)
The premise of physicality, either in full or in part, is a starting point that leads to no good. This perception and acceptance of man as made of matter, bound by its limits and confined to its unkind laws, will never lead to comfort or peace or true happiness. A reliance on physical organization always leaves man open to physical disorganization, deterioration, doom.
But this “Pandora box” that, when opened, would bring hopelessness, needn’t be ours to accept blindly and without question. It is a myth about life that can be given up and our true box of delights picked up and eagerly opened. We can give up despair by accepting the gift of reality—spiritual being, based always and only on God and His substance, His Life, His organization, His Love.
Begin anew with this true description of yourself and of life. You are built of spiritual qualities, of God’s own nature. You are His image, not the picture of physical beliefs about life. You are a coherent whole, not a bunch of parts. Your wholeness is holy, the natural and necessary result of your Creator’s Principle, that which is entirely spiritual, harmonious, immortal—a treasury of riches, not a box of gloom! Open the gift of the true you!
