MIND propels us
MIND propels our health, life and progress. The young man was sitting on the window ledge on the third level of the house, listening to Paul's teachings, when sleep took over, causing him to fall to the ground level and die. "But Paul went down, bent over him and holding him gently in his arms, said, 'Don't be alarmed; he is still alive.' ... they took him alive, feeling immeasurably relieved." Eddy: "Christian Science reveals incontrovertibly that Mind is All-in-all, that the only realities are the divine Mind and idea." SOUL-LIFE's imperial laws of life, health and concord protect and sustain us. They revive us from pain, illness, despair, loss, sin and death. Our spiritual composition flourishes incessantly in GOD, and this fact commands healing and progress in our experience. "Moreover we know that to those who love God, who are called according to his plan, everything that happens fits into a pattern for good." Eddy: "Truth is affirmative and confers harmony." We are rescued from setbacks, failures, breakdowns and fears by the understanding that these conditions are mortal dreams which never affect our spiritual identities in SOUL. What is LOVE's plan for us? It is continual harmony and progress.
