From the March 1950 issue of The Christian Science Journal

HOW can we prove good to be real in our experience? By giving it activity and expression in our thinking and in our life. This is what is meant by the realization of good. To understand the fact that God, good, is expressed through man, His spiritual image and likeness, and then to live accordingly, is to embody the ever-active laws of divine Principle, which are eternally self expressed and self-expressing.

God is not a theory. God is infinite good, and His individuality is constantly represented in individual man. Christ Jesus came to prove this very fact. He healed all manner of sickness and sin and even raised the dead through the understanding that Truth sustains its idea, Soul manifests itself in the harmony, health, and beauty of man, and Spirit constantly expresses itself as man's substance and intelligence.

All that actually exists is the one infinite Mind and its infinite creation or manifestation. The endless variety of Mind's ideas is ceaselessly reiterating the goodness of God, His loving kindness, His fathering and mothering of man. Real man is necessary to God in order that His nature, substance. and holiness be manifest, and man's ability to express divine Mind is from Mind itself. True man is eternally at one with His Father-Mother, having the consciousness of good only.
