System of Divine Science Intact

While always controversial, Mary Baker Eddy’s theories have been exceptionally influential in Mind-healing. The impact of this 19th century spiritual leader remains extraordinary. Eddy formulated her theories within the framework of what she termed, divine Science, a.k.a. Christian Science. Her system, outlined in her main book, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, was put into place as a foundation on which resilient structures would and could be built. But new generations of church leaders did not extend the idea and consequently, the basic core values of Christian Science were smothered by rituals and poor judgments. Fortunately, the system of divine Science is not answerable to the structures implanted on its foundation. Individual persons can access Mind-healing through spiritual knowledge and inspiration.

Divine Science is a means of discovery, a discovery not of the physical measurable stuff, but of the immeasurable ideals, such as the discovery of infinite Mind, principled Love, or immortality. As the metaphysical knowledge is digested, it can be found to be pragmatic and useful in everyday life.

The metaphysics of Christian Science did not originate with Eddy, who herself recognized the intrinsic law of Mind-healing was, and always will be, effective throughout history. The core values of divine Science can be detected in many cultures and religions around the world, even if not fully internalized or realized.

The purview of spirituality includes Mind-healing which is available to people of all faiths and backgrounds, even if slow to translate into practice. Metaphysical healing through prayer and meditation is leading the collective consciousness to admit its validity and find less intrusive means of healing. The extant system of divine metaphysics can be, and is, tapped into and utilized every day to promote spiritual growth and health. All the rituals and poor judgments in the world can’t stop the system of divine Science and its healing effect.
