of the universe, - you cannot awake in fear or suffering
of any sort.
   Science saith to fear, "You are the cause of all sickness;
but you are a self-constituted falsity, - you are
darkness, nothingness.  You are without 'hope, and without
God in the world.' You do not exist, and have no
right to exist, for 'perfect Love casteth out fear.'"
   God is everywhere.  "There is no speech nor language,
where their voice is not heard;" and this voice is Truth

mortal mind, it cannot be found in the body.
   Posterity will have the right to demand that Christian
Science be stated and demonstrated in its godliness and
grandeur, - that however little be taught or learned, that

health, righteousness, and Life, than a belief in their reality
has ever done.  A demonstration of the unreality of evil
destroys evil.
