1 – Oneness – God is the Source of all that is, and God is all
that is. Everything in the Universe is made of the Godsubstance
and is a unique, individualized expression of God.
2 – Triune Nature – God expresses Itself in three aspects —
Spirit, Soul, and Body. Each human being also has these same
three aspects. Thus, there is God as macrocosm, human
beings as microcosm.
3 – Creative Nature – God thinks, and the world comes into
being. Likewise, all human accomplishments originate in
thought. Our human thinking process is a reflection of the
Divine Creative Process in microcosm.
4 – Prayer – All Good is eternally available and ready to flow
into human experience. We activate this flow by means of
prayer. Through affirmative prayer, or spiritual mind treatment,
we increase our consciousness of Good eternally flowing to us.
5 – Wholeness – Spirit is a transcendent, perfect Whole that
contains and embraces all seeming opposites. As human
beings, we have free will and can choose what we experience,
whether it be positive or negative. The same Principle that
brings us freedom, prosperity, and joy also allows us to
experience bondage, lack, or misery, according to our
6 – Abundance – All that anyone will ever need or desire is
already provided by Universal Abundance. This applies to
everybody, not just some people. Every person is heir to the
riches of Creation, without regard to merit.
7 – The Reciprocal Universe – For every visible form there is
an invisible counterpart. This means that what we receive
corresponds to what we imagine and believe we can receive,
the Law of Mental Equivalents. This also is the Golden Rule:
that what we do to others will be done also to us, the Law of
Cause and Effect.
8 – Forgiveness – In the Eternal Now, there can be no place
for Divine anger, unforgiveness, or punishment. If we perceive
a need for forgiveness, this is a human condition. Human
forgiveness is the process that frees us to live in the Eternal
Now. It is the essential step before real spiritual growth can
flourish. Science of Mind teaches that the ultimate goal of life is
complete emancipation from all discord of every nature, and that
this goal is sure to be attained by all.
9 – Immortality – The Universal Truth about life is that life
never ends. What we call death is simply the changing of one
form of life for another. Death, the belief and perception that life
must come to an end, is a human concept. As in birth the
invisible becomes visible, so in dying the visible again becomes
invisible. Life continues on another plane when the body has
outlived its usefulness.
10 – The Christ – Christ is not a person, but a Principle, a
Universal Presence, the Universal Image of God that is present
in all Creation. This is the concept of the Cosmic Christ, which
is present within every person. Each human individual partakes
of the Christ nature to the degree that he or she recognizes the
Cosmic Christ within and lives out of that revelation. Jesus of
Nazareth was a human individual who revealed the Christ
Nature to the highest degree ever known.
