An excerpt from my new book, from science & religion to God: a briefer narrative of Mary Baker Eddy’s Science and Health:
Overcome beliefs instead of restrict yourself to them. We can uproot disease and throw it out of the mind. We can comprehend that disease is not a fixed fact. We can feel the influence of divine Love casting out fear. Spiritual consciousness masters fear instead of avoids or cultivates it. The more that is said about moral and spiritual law, the better will be the quality of life and the further mortals will be removed from mental illness or disease.
Spiritual consciousness guides us to locate and employ physicians who see us as more than just a physical body. Honest conversations with practitioners are appropriate.
We don’t need to be negatively affected by advertisements paid for by pharmaceutical companies. It’s beneficial not to give time and attention to selfishness, coddling, or fear-based guessing about our minds and bodies. It’s beneficial not to discuss our maladies with others as if it’s a competition to see who is worse off…
Every human being must learn that evil has neither power nor reality in Spirit. Evil is a denial of truth, as if Truth could be absent, but it can’t. There is no absence of God, omnipotent and omnipresent good.
Evil is self-assertive, but its only power is to destroy itself. Evil is not immortal; if it was, goodness would be a myth. Every attempt of evil to destroy good is a failure and only aids in punishing the evildoer. Do not concede reality to disorder while dealing with it realistically…
Incomplete human beings get flustered when following Truth, but don’t give up. Be practical when abandoning the material for the spiritual. Eat healthy food, exercise wisely, work with integrity, use common sense, and be law abiding while you discover your spirituality.
The human footsteps are indispensable. Truth seekers are consistent who, watching and praying, can “Run and not be weary…walk and not be faint.” We can gain spirituality rapidly and hold our position, or we can attain slowly and yield not to discouragement. God requires our due diligence. The battle between Spirit and flesh is fought and the spiritual facts of existence are reached step by step before the victory is won.
 Isaiah 40:31
