    John Young of Edinburgh writes: “God is the father 18of mind, and of nothing else.” Such an utterance is “the voice of one crying in the wilderness” of human beliefs and preparing the way of Science. Let us learn 21of the real and eternal, and prepare for the reign of Spirit, the kingdom of heaven, — the reign and rule of universal harmony, which cannot be lost nor remain 24forever unseen.

    Mind, not matter, is causation. A material body only expresses a material and mortal mind. A mortal 27Sickness as only thoughtman possesses this body, and he makes it harmonious or discordant according to the images of thought impressed upon it. You embrace 30your body in your thought, and you should delineate upon it thoughts of health, not of sickness. You should banish all thoughts of disease and sin and of other beliefs 209 209:1included in matter. Man, being immortal, has a perfect indestructible life. It is the mortal belief which makes 3the body discordant and diseased in proportion as ignorance, fear, or human will governs mortals.

    Mind, supreme over all its formations and governing 6them all, is the central sun of its own systems of ideas, Allness of Truththe life and light of all its own vast creation; and man is tributary to divine Mind. The 9material and mortal body or mind is not the man.

    The world would collapse without Mind, without the intelligence which holds the winds in its grasp. Neither 12philosophy nor skepticism can hinder the march of the Science which reveals the supremacy of Mind. The immanent sense of Mind-power enhances the glory of Mind. 15Nearness, not distance, lends enchantment to this view.

    The compounded minerals or aggregated substances composing the earth, the relations which constituent 18Spiritual translationmasses hold to each other, the magnitudes, distances, and revolutions of the celestial bodies, are of no real importance, when we remember 21that they all must give place to the spiritual fact by the translation of man and the universe back into Spirit. In proportion as this is done, man and the universe will be 24found harmonious and eternal.
