Money and Mental Malpractice

In distant ages money has been termed the root of all evil, nevertheless we still need it in the modern world as a means to exchange value such as work rendered for the things that are required for our physical existence, as for our daily bread, clothing, housing, etc.. Unfortunately that exchange system doesn't work, does it? Money has become a means for looting, creating billionaires on one side and poverty on the other, with the looting becoming evermore globalized, forcing entire nations into slavery-subservience. Wars are fought for the sole purpose of widening that gap evermore. Wars become the force when coercive means for looting fail. While many factors are sited for wars, the bottom line is always economic. It is always for looting. Even nuclear war is economic. The nuclear posture is no longer "deterrence," but "compellence" to force all nations under the one rule of a global empire. We are far down that road, the road to the darkest age ever experienced.

Money has become the universal god on that road. It now dominates the world, subjugating love, honour, humanity, morality, even human life itself. In the name of this god everything that is precious is turned into dust, such as for instance, millions of children being enslaved into child labour, or sexual slavery, or into become child soldiers, or drug pushers, or assassins, to name but a few facets of this scourge, a scourge that few children can long survive. And those are just the mild cases of the outcome of the mesmerism that perverted the face of money from an instrument in the service of love to becoming an instrument devoid of love and for trashing of Love as divine, universally manifest Principle.

Mary Baker Eddy has created a foundation for dealing with all of those types of sub-human problems by elevating our perception of ourselves as human beings who are by design divine beings, the reflection of Life, Truth, Love, Spirit, Mind, Soul, Principle, the All-In-All God. In divine Science man is not God, but as Christ Jesus declared, the human is coincident with the divine. Here begins divine Science. All healing flows from this Christ-revealed fact. Mary Baker Eddy created 26 Bible lesson topics to help us focus on this fact on a daily basis and thus to uplift our life and also our civilization from the smallest aspect of our private world all the way to the global scale.

Below is a list of the 26 topics for the Christian Science Bible Lessons instituted by Mary Baker Eddy. The topics are repeated twice a year in Churches of Christ Scientists. The individual topics are as follows:

  1. God
  2. Sacrament
  3. Life
  4. Truth
  5. Love
  6. Spirit
  7. Soul
  8. Mind
  9. Christ Jesus
  10. Man
  11. Substance
  12. Matter
  13. Reality
  14. Unreality
  15. Are Sin, Disease, and Death Real?
  16. Doctrine of Atonement
  17. Probation after Death
  18. Everlasting Punishment
  19. Adam and Fallen Man
  20. Mortals and Immortals
  21. Soul and Body
  22. Ancient and Modern Necromancy, alias Mesmerism and Hypnotism Denounced
  23. God the only Cause and Creator
  24. God the Preserver of Man
  25. Is the Universe, Including Man, Evolved by Atomic Force?
  26. Christian Science

If one looks closer at this list of topics it becomes apparent that there are actually two sets of topics provided. The first set, 1-13 focuses primarily on the divine, while the second set focuses primarily on the human as being coincident with the divine. It also becomes apparent that there exists an amazing symmetry between the two sets. The symmetry is flowing from the center outwards, such that 13-Reality coincides with its counter part 14-Unreality. If one explores this symmetry, the table below comes to light.

God Christian Science
Sacrament Is the Universe, Including Man, Evolved by Atomic Force?
Life God the Preserver of Man
Truth God the only Cause and Creator
Love Ancient and Modern Necromancy, alias Mesmerism and Hypnotism Denounced
Spirit Soul and Body
Soul Mortals and Immortals
Mind Adam and Fallen Man
Christ Jesus Everlasting Punishment
Man Probation after Death
Substance Doctrine of Atonement
Matter Are Sin, Disease, and Death Real?
Reality Unreality

For the question of money the juxtaposition of the topic  "Love" and "Ancient and Modern Necromancy, alias Mesmerism and Hypnotism..." is interesting. If money is seen as means for creating credit to build houses, industries, infrastructures, and so forth, the things that society needs for a rich and productive existence, then money bears the hue of divine Love, reflecting the Principle of Universal Love. But this is no longer the case in today's practice. The world has been mesmerized into equating money with wealth, seeking property, profit, power, domination, and so forth. Love has been banned under this mesmerism, under the new hypnotism that the imperial necromancers exert over society, promoted with the mental malpractice of rhetoric that is totally devoid of love.

It seems to me that Mary Baker Eddy has bid us to explore the liberating scientific juxtapositions that focus on the dive reality, and not just in respect to money, but in all respects that pertains to the coincidence of the human and the divine. Money is merely sited in this example as one of today's major items of a perversion of the face of humanity, a perversion that has become a monster so huge that it wields the power to eradicate civilization if not humanity altogether under the now numerous imperial policies for depopulation. None of that existed in Mary Baker Eddy's days, except in mild forms. The physical means for 'omicite' certainly didn't exist such nuclear bombs, AIDS, Depleted Uranium bombs, biological weapons, imperial globalism, etc.. However, the juxtaposing of Love and the mental malpractice to sidestep Love did exist. It was evident even then that this track leads to eradicating the very notion of love, the track that so much of society is now on that its very existence is in danger.

The importance of Mary Baker Eddy's contribution to mankind can be gleamed when we begin to realize that her work is still a pioneering beacon that no one in modern times has yet come to match on the political and social horizon. Numerous call have gone out to fix the financial destruction of the world with some more-just financial arrangements, or to eradicate war with peace treaties, or to eradicate poverty with the redistribution of resources. These honourable efforts, of course, would do much to overcome the worst tragedies, but they seem to fail because they fall short of shifting the focus onto the divine Principle of universal Love and the coincidence of the human and the divine. Mary Baker Eddy remains the lone pioneer on this front and will likely remain so until mankind rediscovers itself and begins to heal its deepest wound.

Mary Baker Eddy writes the following about the coincidence of the human and the divine:


(Divinity and humanity)
John saw
the human and divine coincidence, shown in the man Jesus, as divinity embracing humanity in Life and its demonstration, - reducing to human perception and understanding the Life which is God.

(Spiritual sunlight)
The woman in the Apocalypse symbolizes generic man, the spiritual idea of God; she illustrates
the coincidence of God and man as the divine Principle and divine idea. The Revelator symbolizes Spirit by the sun. The spiritual idea is clad with the radiance of spiritual Truth, and matter is put under her feet. The light portrayed is really neither solar nor lunar, but spiritual Life, which is "the light of men." In the first chapter of the Fourth Gospel it is written, "There was a man sent from God . . . to bear witness of that Light." 

(Science and Health, p 561)


   This Science of God and man is the Holy Ghost, which
reveals and sustains the unbroken and eternal harmony
of both God and the universe.  It is the kingdom of heaven,
the ever-present reign of harmony, already with us.  Hence
the need that human consciousness should become divine,
in the coincidence of God and man, in contradistinction
to the false consciousness of both good and evil, God and
devil, - of man separated from his Maker.  

(Unity of Good, p.52)


 

CHRISTIAN SCIENCE THANKS

Boston Globe, November 29, 1900

   On the threshold of the twentieth century, will you
please send through the Globe to the people of New
England, which is the birthplace of Thanksgiving Day, a
sentiment on what the last Thanksgiving Day of the
nineteenth century should signify to all mankind?

Mrs. Eddy's Response

   New England's last Thanksgiving Day of this century
signifies to the minds of men the Bible better understood
and Truth and Love made more practical; the First
Commandment of the Decalogue more imperative, and
"Love thy neighbor as thyself" more possible and
pleasurable.
   It signifies that love, unselfed, knocks more loudly than
ever before at the heart of humanity and that it finds
admittance; that revelation, spiritual voice and vision,
are less subordinate to material sight and sound and more
apparent to reason; that evil flourishes less, invests less
in trusts, loses capital, and is bought at par value; that
the Christ-spirit will cleanse the earth of human gore;
that civilization, peace between nations, and the brotherhood
of man should be established, and justice plead not
vainly in behalf of the sacred rights of individuals, peoples,
and nations.
   It signifies that the Science of Christianity has dawned
upon human thought to appear full-orbed in millennial
glory; that scientific religion and scientific therapeutics
are improving the morals and increasing the longevity
of mankind, are mitigating and destroying sin, disease,
and death; that religion and materia medica should be
no longer tyrannical and proscriptive; that divine Love,
impartial and universal, as understood in divine Science,
forms
the coincidence of the human and divine,
which fulfils the saying of our great Master, "The kingdom
of God is within you;" that the atmosphere of the
human mind, when cleansed of self and permeated with
divine Love, will reflect this purified subjective state in
clearer skies, less thunderbolts, tornadoes, and extremes of
heat and cold; that agriculture, manufacture, commerce,
and wealth should be governed by honesty, industry,
and justice, reaching out to all classes and peoples.
For these signs of the times we thank our Father-Mother
God. 

(Miscellany p. 265)


When compared with 'thanksgiving' of Nov. 2000, the evidence suggests that mankind is presently stuck on the fast track in the opposite direction, which the following years tragically demonstrate. Nevertheless, the coincidence of the human and the divine remains unmarred. No miracle is needed to assert its light and to bring ourselves into it, stepping away from the empty folly of being mesmerized by money as wealth and power rather than a medium for an unfolding love that brightens the path of man and furnishes the development of society's universal humanity and its civilization that bears the hallmark of the divine nature.
