One present universe

From the December 2017 issue of The Christian Science Journal

A wonder—a real joy in life—is to discover that there’s more to our world, each other, and ourselves than what we see when we look around—to learn that the deepest and truest sense of reality is actually exclusively spiritual. 

An honest desire to understand this better opens up a world of healing, transformation, comfort, and uplifted character. Christian Science Discoverer Mary Baker Eddy writes in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures: “For right reasoning there should be but one fact before the thought, namely, spiritual existence. In reality there is no other existence, since Life cannot be united to its unlikeness, mortality.

“Being is holiness, harmony, immortality. It is already proved that a knowledge of this, even in small degree, will uplift the physical and moral standard of mortals, will increase longevity, will purify and elevate character. Thus progress will finally destroy all error, and bring immortality to light” (p. 492).
