From the July 1928 issue of The Christian Science Journal

DIVINE Mind is infinite, eternal, and supreme; and since this is so, since Mind, God, exists, there must be unlimited action, enterprise, discovery. We have passed the time when the depressing word "impossible" deters or hinders. We have learned that to God, divine Principle, "all things are possible;" and we know that those among His children who rightly seek and strive shall surely find.

Future discoveries will be in the realm of divine Mind; and Mind, not matter, will be their impelling force. It is going to be very largely within the province of those who have learned in Christian Science what Mind is, and what its possibilities are, to take the part of pioneers in the demonstration of the truth which now awaits larger comprehension. It is in the very nature of spiritual progress that mankind shall, through the higher understanding of Christian Science, free itself from material limitations, hindrances, and obstacles and, claiming man's spiritual birthright, mount to spiritual heights before unrealized. Our Leader, Mrs. Eddy, has prophesied, and her prophecies are being fulfilled (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 125): "The seasons will come and go with changes of time and tide, cold and heat, latitude and longitude. The agriculturist will find that these changes cannot affect his crops. 'As a vesture shalt Thou change them and they shall be changed.' The mariner will have dominion over the atmosphere and the great deep, over the fish of the sea and the fowls of the air. The astronomer will no longer look up to the stars,—he will look out from them upon the universe; and the florist will find his flower before its seed."

What has not right thinking done for earnest and loyal students, followers of Mary Baker Eddy, herself the loyal student and faithful follower of Christ Jesus? What transformations have been wrought by the dropping of a single grain of spiritual truth into the consciousness of the worldly, the sinner, the downcast, the despairing? Have we not, in a multitude of instances, seen this seed germinate, sprout, blossom, and flower? Have not our experiences in impersonal healing been numerous and wonderful—often too sacred to be voiced, or if voiced, only to be whispered into the receptive and reverent ear of those who understand? Marvelous, indeed, have been the proofs of the omnipresence, omniscience, and omnipotence of Mind!
