    SH 301 The belief that man has any other substance, or mind, is not spiritual and breaks the First Commandment, Thou shalt have one God, one Mind. Mortal man seems to himself to be material substance, while man is “image” (idea).

    As we learned last week, man cannot have a single quality underived from God. Thus if God is Spirit, we ought to get serious and learn ourselves anew, as ideas not subject to ANY material claims, or spurious laws but as ideas exalted and maintained by God in our spiritual state. Our true substance is not subject to pain, inflammation, infection, sadness, depression, fearful etc. And as such, we are never (in Truth) sick, sinning or dying. As Bicknell Young says on pg. 38 of 1937 College “wisdom is never affected by blood circulation, justice by the action of heart, goodness cannot have a fever, mercy cannot ache or feel pain; kindness cannot be operated upon nor can gratitude meet with an accident.”

    So the question is always, am I this fleshly being or is my substance entirely spiritual? If God is ALL as in accord with the First commandment, then the latter better be what I am working diligently to KNOW!
