Christian Science is total, whole, real. It is not partial, here a little and there a little, not fragmentary. It goes to the bottom of thought and living. It rouses dormant thinking. It turns on lights in our lives. It revitalizes the total scene. It opens doors and windows one did not formerly know were there.
How many times a situation, relationship, undertaking, fails to feel complete and whole! This is not necessary. In fact, it is not true, for the kingdom of heaven is here and now. It is not "out there." It is not for a later time. It is not for others only, excluding us. It is the whole truth of everyone here and now, and the sense of halfway need not enter one's thought or life.
A halfway sense of anything is mesmerism. It is material suggestion, coming from supposititious mortal consciousness. Christian Science teaches the wholeness of being, the completeness of one's present identity. How does it do this? It does it by revealing the truth of man. And it is applicable to our entire living and experience. Science reveals reality, the truth of our lives here and now. It brings to light one's sonship with Spirit.
