For man, no need to get

From the October 1981 issue of The Christian Science Journal

If we lack necessary funds, employment, a home, or companionship, and are feeling separated from good, we don't need to be discouraged. Circumstances may appear to the contrary, but we can prove that good is omnipresent because good is God. And God is ever with us because He is everywhere.

Since good is all inclusive, it includes man—includes the true, God reflecting selfhood of every individual. And it is the right of you and me and all to claim and live that selfhood as the very essence of our present being. Because in reality we coexist with God we are never alone, friendless, loveless, or helpless. We are not struggling mortals trying to make our way in a dog-eat-dog world, needing sharper teeth and a louder growl.

"Wholly apart from this mortal dream, this illusion and delusion of sense, Christian Science comes to reveal man as God's image, His idea, coexistent with Him — God giving all and man having all that God gives,"The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany, p. 5. Mrs. Eddy writes.
