“Reality is spiritual, harmonious, immutable, immortal, divine, eternal.” (Science and Health, page 335)
Only the life which expresses these qualities is real. And only these qualities expressed are real life. The Truth of being can be found and appreciated in this definition of reality and we will never sufficiently find it anywhere else. The spiritual and unchanging and deathless is the real and the solid and the certain and the reliable. The material, mutable, and mortal are unreality–flimsy suggestions having no reason for our agreement or compliance.
Take a good look at life, and see Life. Agree to believe and abide only by the real. The fiction is not our life. We are not actors in a play or characters in a novel. We are living expressions of all that is really true, that was made by God, and that by definition is eternally right and therefore real. Only that which can’t be shaken–those spiritual ideas of God–constitute life and can be trusted for our safe abiding.
We must and can look at our lives through this spiritual lens, measuring each idea and suggestion against this description. Does what we are feeling or seeing look like the reality that Mrs. Eddy describes here? If not, should we believe it, live it, fight with it, worry about it, dissect it? God’s reality is our true life and its discovery and acceptance opens the door immediately to that which is truly solid and satisfying. Let’s get real, here!
