From the August 1963 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Whatever meets our human needs and heals us is the concern of us all. And when this help is made available in terms of logical and demonstrable spiritual law, as it is in Christian Science, it merits the deepest consideration on the part of all thinkers. One essential aspect in the application of this healing law is stated by Mrs. Eddy on page 269 of Science and Health. There she writes, "Metaphysics resolves things into thoughts, and exchanges the objects of sense for the ideas of Soul."

It may not always seem easy to resolve "things into thoughts." But let us note that Mrs. Eddy tells us that metaphysics does the resolving. Human will has no part in it.

The student of Christian Science reasons that because God is infinite intelligence and all-inclusive Spirit, He is the creator of perfect spiritual ideas and of naught else. In real being there is no matter or even a belief in matter. The ideas of Soul exist now and have always existed in the divine Mind, and they forever express the nature, quality, and character of divinity.
