From the May 1962 issue of The Christian Science Journal

The value of spirituality is priceless. Christ Jesus said (Rom. 8:6), "To be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace."

As students of Christian Science we are learning the great value of spiritual-mindedness. We are striving to spiritualize thought, to accept and to utilize the spiritual truths constantly coming to us from the one and only Mind, God. Only spiritual thoughts are true thoughts, for only spiritual thoughts reflect the absolute facts of real being.

To spiritualize thought, that is, to see and acknowledge God as the only and perfect cause and His spiritual manifestation as the only and perfect effect, brings betterment to every aspect of human living. The loving Father has only good to impart, and the more we recognize and acknowledge with gratitude that God is our only source of existence—the only source of our thought, of our character, of all that is really true about us—the more the way is opened for His goodness and love to abound in our experience. Divine Love is infinite good and is always freely bestowing unlimited good upon man. Spiritualized thought perceives and acknowledges this fact.
