“Spirit is the only substance, the invisible and indivisible infinite God. Things spiritual and eternal are substantial. Things material and temporal are insubstantial.” (Science and Health, page 335)
Choose a new view of things. Take a moment to reflect on the statement above and to consciously decide to see permanence and substantiality in the spiritual. That which is not perceived by the senses, but which rings true with the qualities and nature of God’s own presence and goodness, is our solid substance. It is reliable and indivisible—it can neither be divided from its own Principle nor can we be separated from its Allness and quality.
Look at the world through your spiritual senses, and deny the material senses the supposed power to accurately give you the truth about anything. Our insight brings a true sight, one where that spiritual awareness embraces the physical scene. Our perspective is everything, and the spiritual view is taking God’s own perspective–Life divine, eternal, healthy, right, and true.
Spirit is the only substance. God, good, is the only content and structure and action and nature of the universe. Matter speaks temporally. Spirit speaks eternally. Matter presents a limited view. Spirit announces and expresses constancy and infinite reality. The invisible is here to be seen–experienced with our lives and felt with our hearts. God’s substance is our very being and it is very, very good.
