The healing environment of Soul

From the April 1979 issue of The Christian Science Journal

The Psalmist must have been hungry for Truth, craving the healing peace and harmony of Soul's presence, when he wrote, "My soul longeth, yea, even fainteth for the courts of the Lord: my heart and my flesh crieth out for the living God."Ps. 84;

Many of us have felt the same way. And then what a blessing it is to realize that in absolute reality God, the Soul of man, is the real environment in which we live! Christian Science teaches us that you and I are Soul's ideas, His spiritually mental activity within Himself. With healing directness Mrs. Eddy writes, "Soul is the substance, Life, and intelligence of man, which is individualized, but not in matter."science and Health, p. 477;

God, the infinite Soul, is always joyous and at peace. Then, as His reflection, so are we! Soul is the vital stillness, centering all things, eternally satisfied and complete in the knowledge of its own oneness and allness. No disease-producing fear or tension can invade this perfectly ordered, eternally rested totality of good. Because God, Soul, fills all space, there is nothing external to Him, and nothing that exists within Him can be foreign to His perfect nature and character. You and I are embraced in all-inclusive good.
