Psalm 119:1-3
1 Blessed are the undefiled in the
way, who walk in the law of the Lord.
2 Blessed are they that keep his
testimonies, and that seek him with
the whole heart.
3 They also do no iniquity: they
walk in his ways.

***
Proverbs 8:1,17,20,21
1 Doth not wisdom cry? and
understanding put forth her voice?
17 I love them that love me; and
those that seek me early shall find
me.
20 I lead in the way of
righteousness, in the midst of the
paths of judgment:
21 That I may cause those that love
me to inherit substance; and I will
fill their treasures.

For heaven's Christus, earthly Eves, 
By Adam bid, 
Make merriment on Christmas eves, 
O'er babe and crib. 

Thy kingdom is come,
 Thou art ever-present.

(Corporeal changes)
As human thought changes from one stage to another of conscious
pain and painlessness, sorrow and joy, - from fear to hope and
from faith to understanding, - the visible manifestation will at
last be man governed by Soul, not by material sense.


295:5-24 Chapter 10: Science of Being

Thus olden faith's pale star now blends 
In seven-hued white! 
Life, without birth and without end, 
Emitting light! 

Give us grace for to-day;
feed the famished affections.

(Mortals unlike immortals)
God creates and governs the universe, including man. The
universe is filled with spiritual ideas, which He evolves, and
they are obedient to the Mind that makes them. Mortal mind would
transform the spiritual into the material, and then recover man's
original self in order to escape from the mortality of this error.
Mortals are not like immortals, created in God's own image; but
infinite Spirit being all, mortal consciousness will at last yield
to the scientific fact and disappear, and the real sense of being,
perfect and forever intact, will appear.
(Goodness transparent)
The manifestation of God through mortals is as light passing
through the window-pane. The light and the glass never mingle,
but as matter, the glass is less opaque than the walls. The
mortal mind through which Truth appears most vividly is that one
which has lost much materiality - much error - in order to become
a better transparency for Truth. Then, like a cloud melting into
thin vapor, it no longer hides the sun.

275:10-12 Chapter 10: Science of Being

(Divine synonyms)
To grasp the reality and order of being in its Science, you must
begin by reckoning God as the divine Principle of all that really
is.


483:13-19 Chapter 14: Recapitulation

To-day, as oft, away from sin 
Christ summons thee! 
Truth pleads to-night: Just take Me in! 
No mass for Me! 

God leadeth us not into temptation, but delivereth us from sin, disease, and death.

of spiritual existence and creation.

(Terms adopted by the author)
After the author's sacred discovery, she affixed the name
"Science" to Christianity, the name "error" to corporeal sense,
and the name "substance" to Mind. Science has called the world to
battle over this issue and its demonstration, which heals the sick,
destroys error, and reveals the universal harmony.
