Beyond material appearances to spiritual reality

From the November 2022 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Prayer that is firmly based on Jesus’ teachings and Mary Baker Eddy’s revelation of Christian Science is a powerful healing agent. Look for occasional articles in the Journal, Christian Science Sentinel, and The Herald of Christian Science that are specifically designed to help realize the healing results we’re looking for, explaining and correcting common misconceptions about practicing Christian Science. 

Several years ago a friend announced that he was tired of always trying to remember, as Christian Science teaches, that what looks like material things to the physical senses are really perceptions or beliefs. In other words, they are entirely mental in nature. He said it was a relief to think of material things, including his body, just being what they appear to be­—that is, to see everything as material.
