“The evidence of divine Mind’s healing power and absolute control is to me as certain as the evidence of my own existence.” (Science and Health, page 177)
The author of Science and Health had a great confidence in the healing power of Truth and its expected evidence. Mary Baker Eddy was so clearly convinced that she knew that as sure as she had being, so was the divine Mind in control, exclusively, and this was something to which human life could bear witness.
I love this conviction, and I turn to it at times when I’m praying for healing, for understanding, for peace. Can I mirror that great surety that Mrs. Eddy expressed? Is there any reason that the Truth should be less real to me than it was to her? The Truth is in fact our own existence. Just as we are alive, just as we have being, so there is God expressing that wonderful Life. Our being is inseparable from that Life that is divine, good, perfect, and ever-present.
Take your stand with Mrs. Eddy on this. We have no reason to doubt God’s presence and power when it is actually right where we are, in the qualities that we express, perceive, and love. Those ideals that we may seem to reach for are coming to our thought because they are true and right and necessary and available. Everything that we would hope for, every heavenly idea of Life as perfect good is within our reach, as present and powerful and absolute as the fact of our own existence. The evidence can’t be hidden. We are it!
