The At-One-Ment Mindset

The Forum is dedicated to each week's lesson, and may be used to post questions, comments, and constructive replies that strive to uncover the inspired meaning of the text. The Bulletin Board is for gratitude for Christian Science and the Church, as well as timely excerpts from the Bible, the works of Mrs. Eddy, and the early workers that help and encourage. We are very grateful for all posts that conform to these guidelines, but will edit or remove anything that the Practitioners feel is not in complete accord with pure Christian Science or in any way disrespectful of it.

We also ask that you keep your postings as concise as possible; make two short postings of the long posts or send the lengthy ones for publication in our Magazine or Newsletter. If you quote the Bible, please use The King James Version, as this is what Mrs. Eddy used. Thank you!

    The at-one-ment mindset understands existence as spherical, having neither beginning nor end. At-one-ment is a state. Thought proceeding from the at-one-ment state is causal: it is thinking from Cause, not merely of or about Cause. “. . . [M]an has not a separate mind from Deity, for that would make other Intelligences, and there would be more than one God.” (Science and Health, first edition, 1875, Mary Baker Glover, p. 116). It is from Cause that Jesus wrought his many wonderful works. At-one-ment consciousness is “I-and-the-Father-are-one” consciousness, and for this Jesus was crucified by those who said, “Away with him, for he maketh himself as God.”

    Nevertheless, understanding is knowing, not believing;, that “I and the Father are one. The Father is greater than I. He that hath seen me hath seen the Father.” And it is only this One-with-Cause consciousness that can heal the sick, raise the dead, move mountains, and assault the gates of hell.
