All being is painless and permanent

Wed., 2/25/15 readings, 2nd Church, Berkeley
SH Deut. 4:35 1st the
35 …the LORD he is God; there is none else beside him.
SH Ps. 23:1
1 The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.
SH Ps. 30:2
2 O LORD my God, I cried unto thee, and thou hast healed me.
SH Jer. 18:1-6
1 The word which came to Jeremiah from the LORD, saying, 2 Arise, and go down to the potter’s house, and there I will cause thee to hear my words. 3 Then I went down to the potter’s house, and, behold, he wrought a work on the wheels. 4 And the vessel that he made of clay was marred in the hand of the potter: so he made it again another vessel, as seemed good to the potter to make it. 5 Then the word of the LORD came to me, saying, 6 O house of Israel, cannot I do with you as this potter? saith the LORD. Behold, as the clay is in the potter’s hand, so are ye in mine hand, O house of Israel.
SH II Cor. 4:16 1st though, 17, 18
16 …though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day. 17 For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory; 18 While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.
SH II Cor. 5:1, 6-8, 16 1st henceforth, 17
1 For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. 6 Therefore we are always confident, knowing that, whilst we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord: 7 (For we walk by faith, not by sight:) 8 We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord. 16 …henceforth know we no man after the flesh: yea, though we have known Christ after the flesh, yet now henceforth know we him no more. 17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
SH Luke 3:21, 22
21 Now when all the people were baptized, it came to pass, that Jesus also being baptized, and praying, the heaven was opened, 22 And the Holy Ghost descended in a bodily shape like a dove upon him, and a voice came from heaven, which said, Thou art my beloved Son; in thee I am well pleased.
SH Luke 8:1 (to 1st :), 43, 44, 47, 48
1 And it came to pass afterward, that he went throughout every city and village, preaching and shewing the glad tidings of the kingdom of God: 43 And a woman having an issue of blood twelve years, which had spent all her living upon physicians, neither could be healed of any, 44 Came behind him, and touched the border of his garment: and immediately her issue of blood stanched. 47 And when the woman saw that she was not hid, she came trembling, and falling down before him, she declared unto him before all the people for what cause she had touched him, and how she was healed immediately. 48 And he said unto her, Daughter, be of good comfort: thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace.
SH Luke 4:38 3rd And, 39
38 And he arose out of the synagogue, and entered into Simon’s house. 39 And he stood over her, and rebuked the fever; and it left her: and immediately she arose and ministered unto them.
SH II Cor. 6:16
16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
SH Rev. 21:4, 5 1st I (to 1st .)
4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. 5 .
SH 573:29
Take heart, dear sufferer, for this reality of being will
surely appear sometime and in some way. There will
be no more pain, and all tears will be wiped away. When
you read this, remember Jesus’ words, “The kingdom of
God is within you.” This spiritual consciousness is
therefore a present possibility.
SH 148:25-26
Physiology exalts matter, dethrones Mind, and claims
to rule man by material law, instead of spiritual.
SH 149:4-5, 28-29
The more excellent way is divine
Science in every case.
Whatever guides thought spiritually benefits
mind and body.
SH 414:19-28
The Christian Scien-
tist’s argument rests on the Christianly scientific basis of
being. The Scripture declares, “The Lord He is God
[good]; there is none else beside Him.” Even so, harmony
is universal, and discord is unreal. Christian Science de-
clares that Mind is substance, also that matter neither
feels, suffers, nor enjoys. Hold these points strongly in
view. Keep in mind the verity of being, – that man is
the image and likeness of God, in whom all being is
painless and permanent.
SH 421:15-21
Insist vehe-
mently on the great fact which covers the whole ground,
that God, Spirit, is all, and that there is none beside
Him. There is no disease. When the supposed suffer-
ing is gone from mortal mind, there can be no pain; and
when the fear is destroyed, the inflammation will sub-
SH 391:9-12
Banish the belief that you can possi-
bly entertain a single intruding pain which can-
not be ruled out by the might of Mind, and in this way
you can prevent the development of pain in the body.
SH 462:25-1
The anatomy of Christian
Science teaches when and how to probe the self-in-
flicted wounds of selfishness, malice, envy, and hate. It
teaches the control of mad ambition. It unfolds the
hallowed influences of unselfishness, philanthropy, spir-
itual love. It urges the government of the body both
in health and in sickness. The Christian Scientist,
through understanding mental anatomy, discerns and
deals with the real cause of disease.
SH 428:19
We must realize the ability of mental
might to offset human misconceptions and to replace them
with the life which is spiritual, not material.
SH 346:19-20, 21-25
We treat error through the understanding of Truth,
because Truth is error’s antidote.
a sufferer is convinced that there is no reality
in his belief of pain, – because matter has no sensation,
hence pain in matter is a false belief, – how can he suffer
SH 261:8-11
The effect of mortal mind on health and happiness is
seen in this: If one turns away from the body with such
absorbed interest as to forget it, the body
experiences no pain.
SH 298:13-18
Spiritual sense, contradicting the material senses, in-
volves intuition, hope, faith, understanding, fruition, real-
ity. Material sense expresses the belief that mind is in
matter. This human belief, alternating between a sense
of pleasure and pain, hope and fear, life and death, never
reaches beyond the boundary of the mortal or the unreal.
SH 260:31
If we look to the body for pleasure, we find pain; for
Life, we find death; for Truth, we find error; for Spirit,
we find its opposite, matter. Now reverse this action.
Look away from the body into Truth and Love,
the Principle of all happiness, harmony, and
immortality. Hold thought steadfastly to the endur-
ing, the good, and the true, and you will bring these
into your experience proportionably to their occupancy
of your thoughts.
SH 242:9
There is but one way to heaven, harmony, and Christ
in divine Science shows us this way. It is to know no
other reality – to have no other conscious-
ness of life – than good, God and His reflec-
tion, and to rise superior to the so-called pain and pleasure
of the senses.
SH 496:15-19
Hold perpetually this thought, – that it is the spiritual
idea, the Holy Ghost and Christ, which enables you to
demonstrate, with scientific certainty, the rule of healing,
based upon its divine Principle, Love, underlying, over-
lying, and encompassing all true being.
