THE VALUE OF SPIRITUAL THINKING

From the July 1960 issue of The Christian Science Journal


Physical force, being neither intelligent nor moral, has no control over its own use and so is subject within certain limits to the will of men.

Spiritual thinking, on the contrary, thinking based on the allness of Spirit, embodies divine intelligence and so expresses the divine will. It brings human consciousness into accord with creative Mind and identifies us with the immortal realities of being. Such thinking enables us to recognize the authority of the divine Principle of the universe and to submit to it.

When one thinks spiritually he expresses the Life which is God, the Life that is aware of its own allness. The Psalmist refers to such a one in these words (Ps. 1:2, 3): "His delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper."
