Our enduring well-being is found in LIFE.

Colossians 3:1, Contemporary English Version (CEV)

1You have been raised to life with Christ. Now set your heart on what is in heaven, where Christ rules at God's right side.

Eddy: “Life is divine Mind.  Life is not limited.  Death and finiteness are unknown to Life.” And, “Truth and Love reign in the real man, showing that man is God’s image is unfallen and eternal.”

Spiritual ken raises us out of the graveyard of materialized consciousness, where finiteness, hindrances, fragility, suffering and mortality are considered normal.  Our Christly manhood/womanhood is rich with SOUL’s substance, full of immortality, health, love, energy, abilities and success. 

Romans 8:6, Darby Translation (DARBY)

6For the mind of the flesh [is] death; but the mind of the Spirit life and peace.

Eddy: “Progress is born of experience.  It is the ripening of mortal man, through which the mortal is dropped for the immortal.”  And, “Perfection is gained only by perfection.”

Excellence and immortality defines SOUL and its expression, man.   Although the flesh-dream argues incessantly for illness, sin, failure and death, it cannot disrupt man’s incorporeal, unending life.  As human consciousness is educated out of corporeality it discovers the liberty, endurance and fulfillment of spiritual living.

Deuteronomy 34:7, Darby Translation (DARBY)

7And Moses was a hundred and twenty years old when he died; his eye was not dim, nor his natural force abated.

Eddy: “Mortals waken from the dream of death with bodies unseen by those who think they bury the body.”  And, “This body is put off only as the mortal, erring mind yields to God, immortal Mind, and man is found in His image.”

Spiritual cognition makes it possible to resurrect daily from corporeal mortality and into perennial and exuberant Life.  Material decay and hindrances are replaced by SPIRIT-derived vigor, health, intelligence, and love.
