From the November 1956 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Mary Baker Eddy states in her autobiography, "Retrospection and Introspection" (p. 56): "All consciousness is Mind, and Mind is God. Hence there is but one Mind; and that one is the infinite good, supplying all Mind by the reflection, not the subdivision, of God. Whatever else claims to be mind, or consciousness, is untrue."

These words premise the conclusion that all that is real and good in human consciousness is coincident with divine Mind. Every event in human history that has brought to light something of the substance and activity of the only real consciousness represents in some degree the unfoldment of infinite good.

Jesus' divinely natural demonstrations of the power of Christ, Truth, to overrule sin, disease, and death proved beyond cavil that good is not a personal benefaction but is the impersonal reflection of God, divine Principle, Love. Jesus said (John 14:10), "The words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works."
