27    The multiplication of a human and mortal sense of persons and things is not creation. A sensual thought, like an atom of dust thrown into the face of spiritual im30mensity, is dense blindness instead of a scientific eternal consciousness of creation.

    The fading forms of matter, the mortal body and ma264264:1terial earth, are the fleeting concepts of the human mind. They have their day before the permanent facts and their 3Mind’s true cameraperfection in Spirit appear. The crude creations of mortal thought must finally give place to the glorious forms which we sometimes behold in the 6camera of divine Mind, when the mental picture is spiritual and eternal. Mortals must look beyond fading, finite forms, if they would gain the true sense of things. 9Where shall the gaze rest but in the unsearchable realm of Mind? We must look where we would walk, and we must act as possessing all power from Him in whom we 12have our being.

    As mortals gain more correct views of God and man, multitudinous objects of creation, which before were 15Self-completeness invisible, will become visible. When we realize that Life is Spirit, never in nor of matter, this understanding will expand into self-com18pleteness, finding all in God, good, and needing no other consciousness.

    Spirit and its formations are the only realities of being. 21Matter disappears under the microscope of Spirit. Sin Spiritual proofs of existenceis unsustained by Truth, and sickness and death were overcome by Jesus, who proved 24them to be forms of error. Spiritual living and blessedness are the only evidences, by which we can recognize true existence and feel the unspeakable peace 27which comes from an all-absorbing spiritual love.

    When we learn the way in Christian Science and recognize man’s spiritual being, we shall behold and under30stand God’s creation, — all the glories of earth and heaven and man.
