    Acquaintance with the Science of being enables us to 15commune more largely with the divine Mind, to foresee and foretell events which concern the universal welfare, to be divinely inspired, — yea, to reach the range of fetter18less Mind.

    To understand that Mind is infinite, not bounded by corporeality, not dependent upon the ear and eye for 21The Mind unboundedsound or sight nor upon muscles and bones for locomotion, is a step towards the Mind-science by which we discern man’s nature and existence. 24This true conception of being destroys the belief of spiritualism at its very inception, for without the concession of material personalities called spirits, spiritualism has no 27basis upon which to build.

    All we correctly know of Spirit comes from God, divine Principle, and is learned through Christ and Christian 30Scientific foreknowingScience. If this Science has been thoroughly learned and properly digested, we can know the truth more accurately than the astronomer can read 85 85:1the stars or calculate an eclipse. This Mind-reading is the opposite of clairvoyance. It is the illumination of 3the spiritual understanding which demonstrates the capacity of Soul, not of material sense. This Soul-sense comes to the human mind when the latter yields to the 6divine Mind.

    Such intuitions reveal whatever constitutes and perpetuates harmony, enabling one to do good, but not 9Value of intuitionevil. You will reach the perfect Science of healing when you are able to read the human mind after this manner and discern the error you would 12destroy. The Samaritan woman said: “Come, see a man, which told me all things that ever I did: is not this the Christ?”

15    It is recorded that Jesus, as he once journeyed with his students, “knew their thoughts,” — read them scientifically. In like manner he discerned disease and healed 18the sick. After the same method, events of great moment were foretold by the Hebrew prophets. Our Master rebuked the lack of this power when he said: 21“O ye hypocrites! ye can discern the face of the sky; but can ye not discern the signs of the times?”
