Genesis ii. 2. And on the seventh day God ended His work which He had made; and He rested on the seventh 24day from all His work which He had made.

    God rests in action. Imparting has not impoverished, Resting in holy workcan never impoverish, the divine Mind. No 27exhaustion follows the action of this Mind, according to the apprehension of divine Science. The 520 520:1highest and sweetest rest, even from a human standpoint, is in holy work.

3    Unfathomable Mind is expressed. The depth, breadth, height, might, majesty, and glory of infinite Love fill all Love and man coexistentspace. That is enough! Human language 6can repeat only an infinitesimal part of what exists. The absolute ideal, man, is no more seen nor comprehended by mortals, than is his infinite Principle, 9Love. Principle and its idea, man, are coexistent and eternal. The numerals of infinity, called seven days, can never be reckoned according to the calendar of time. 12These days will appear as mortality disappears, and they will reveal eternity, newness of Life, in which all sense of error forever disappears and thought accepts the divine 15infinite calculus.

Genesis ii. 4, 5. These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the 18Lord God [Jehovah] made the earth and the heavens, and every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew: for the Lord God [Jehovah] 21had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was not a man to till the ground.

    Here is the emphatic declaration that God creates all 24through Mind, not through matter, — that the plant Growth is from Mindgrows, not because of seed or soil, but because growth is the eternal mandate of Mind. Mor27tal thought drops into the ground, but the immortal creating thought is from above, not from beneath. Because Mind makes all, there is nothing left to be made by a 30lower power. Spirit acts through the Science of Mind, never causing man to till the ground, but making him 521 521:1superior to the soil. Knowledge of this lifts man above the sod, above earth and its environments, to conscious 3spiritual harmony and eternal being.
