This mortal body is not me,
Indeed it simply cannot be!
Matter clearly can’t define
What is eternal and divine.

And as the sun dispels all mist,
I see that matter can’t exist.
It clearly isn't in God's thought,-
For what He made - divinely wrought!
Sickness, sin, just disappear:
All is God and God’s idea.

I shine on with His own light,
The radiant glory of Her might.
ME is truly Mind Expressed,
Mind my motion, and my rest.
Divine the Body which is One:
Man in Christ is God's own Son.

Dear God, I am at one with Thee
And I am what God doth see!

"I and my Father are one." John 10:30

CLOTHED ANEW Luke 12:27,28

By Ken Cooper

I saw the clothes in Tailor’s shop,
They looked just made for me.
I tried them on, they fitted snug,
My purchase meant to be.

One piece it shone like Life divine,
Another showed much Love!
And fully wrapped with strongest Truth,
All fitted like a glove.

I asked how much the garments cost,
The Tailor said “They’re free!
These clothes divine are heaven made
And glow with purity!”

I felt so good in wearing them,
It gave me vision new,
I quite forgot what I had worn,
Old mortal clothes were through!

For when I left the changing room
There was no turning back:
I realised that with these clothes
I never more would lack.

Life, Truth and Love now what I wear,
They’re perfect and sublime.
Thus I express what’s Tailor-made,
And wear them all the time.

II Cor 5:1-4
For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed upon with our house which is from heaven: If so be that being clothed we shall not be found naked. For we that are in this tabernacle do groan, being burdened: not for that we would be unclothed, but clothed upon, that mortality might be swallowed up of life.

Luke 12:27,28
Consider the lilies how they grow: they toil not, they spin not; and yet I say unto you, that Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. If then God so clothe the grass, which is to-day in the field, and to-morrow is cast into the oven; how much more will he clothe you, O ye of little faith?
Science and Health 530:5
In divine Science, man is sustained by God, the divine Principle of being. The earth, at God's command, brings forth food for man's use. Knowing this, Jesus once said, "Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink," — presuming not on the prerogative of his creator, but recognizing God, the Father and Mother of all, as able to feed and clothe man as He doth the lilies.

Primitive, Present, and Ultimate

By J. Denis Glover

To spiritual man, these three states are all the same--the continuous now.

He is never born, doesn't pass through a physical embodiment with personal events, and doesn't die out of it. 

As Jesus said, "Before Abraham was, I am."  The term "I AM" in the Old Testament signifies all forms of the verb "to be."  Man was, is now, and shall be the spiritual embodiment of that I AM, called "God," or "infinite Spirit."

This Spirit is not anthropomorphic, is not manlike, is not an angry nor condemning actuality, but impersonal, infinite benevolence throughout eternity and throughout what appears as time.

And what says otherwise?  What says, "You were conceived in the flesh, born out of the womb, raised by parents in a physical world, met arduous trials and gained triumphs, merited or unmerited, and will pass out of it to some unknown state?"

Answer: The inertia of world thought, which in its drag against spirituality ironically tends to act aggressively to drag us with it. This aggression, often unsensed, forces itself into our daily lives, suggesting time, fear, illness, failure, and terminal existence.

What to do?  Such aggression is not only confronted, but defeated, by a method that sounds contradictory.  That is, by magnifying Spirit in one's consciousness and life to the degree that the aggression is seen not only to be powerless, but, strangely enough, to have never existed. 

Odd as it may seem, this method restores one's body, mind, and experience.  His past, present, and future are redeemed.
