…  I’ve come to regard spiritual qualities and ideas as having much more to do with who I actually am than with anything else that would appear to make up my identity. …   For me, this passage from Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures gets right to the heart of the matter:  “Man is more [emphasis added] than a material form with a mind inside, which must escape from its environments in order to be immortal.  Man reflects infinity, and this reflection is the true idea of God” (Mary Baker Eddy, p. 258). …

As an applied science Christian Science is not always ‘easy’ but when applied diligently it is absolutely marvellous and well worth the study.
