Spiritualized thought results from thinking consistently from a spiritual basis. A first step in this spiritualization is desire for it—compelling, constant desire to know what is spiritually true, to understand the facts of God, man, and the universe, to be aware of the spiritual realm of divine Mind and its ideas. This change in the very nature of our thinking follows our consideration of spiritual ideas and our dwelling in thought on the things of Spirit, God. We then allow spiritual truths to govern us.
The desire for spirituality leads the student of Christian Science to turn habitually to the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy. No matter how frequently and how deeply we partake of its riches there is always an additional inexhaustible supply of fresh inspiration, new mental vistas, untapped spiritual riches available to us at all times. This book is an unfailing well of spiritual ideas.
Science and Health came into being as a result of Mrs. Eddy's lifelong, deep, impelling desire to know and obey God. Written through God-directed inspiration, it is consonant with the teachings of Christ Jesus, and interprets the Scriptures in their spiritual sense. The book explains the divine Science of being; it expresses in comprehensible language the deep things of God; it spiritualizes the thought of every honest searcher for Truth.
