6erned by God, this individuality was safe in the substance of Soul, the substance of Spirit, — yea, the substance of God, the one inclusive good.

9In Science all being is individual; for individuality is endless in the calculus of forms and numbers. Herein sin is miraculous and supernatural; for it is not in the

12nature of God, and good is forever good. Accord- ing to Christian Science, perfection is normal, — not miraculous. Clothed, and in its right Mind, man's

15individuality is sinless, deathless, harmonious, eternal. His materiality, clad in a false mentality, wages feeble fight with his individuality,  — his physical senses with

18his spiritual senses. The latter move in God's grooves of Science: the former revolve in their own orbits, and must stand the friction of false selfhood until self-

21destroyed.

In obedience to the divine nature, man's individuality reflects the divine law and order of being. How shall

24we reach our true selves? Through Love. The Prin- ciple of Christian Science is Love, and its idea represents Love. This divine Principle and idea are demonstrated,

27in healing, to be God and the real man.

Who wants to be mortal, or would not gain the true ideal of Life and recover his own individuality? I will

30love, if another hates. I will gain a balance on the side of good, my true being. This alone gives me the forces of God wherewith to overcome all error. On this rests the

1implicit faith engendered by Christian Science, which appeals intelligently to the facts of man's spirituality, in-

3dividuality, to disdain the fears and destroy the discords of this material personality.

On our Master's individual demonstrations over sin,

6sickness, and death, rested the anathema of priesthood and the senses; yet this demonstration is the foundation of Christian Science. His physical sufferings, which

9came from the testimony of the senses, were over when he resumed his individual spiritual being, after showing us the way to escape from the material body.
