“And the angel said to Elijah the prophet, Go forth, and stand upon the mount before the Lord. And, behold, the Lord passed by, and a great and strong wind rent the mountains, and brake in pieces the rocks before the Lord; but the Lord was not in the wind: and after the wind an earthquake; but the Lord was not in the earthquake: and after the earthquake a fire; but the Lord was not in the fire: and after the fire a still small voice.” (1 Kings 19:11-12)
“Seeking and Finding”– Illustration by James F. Gilman From Christ and Christmas by Mary Baker Eddy
Mary Baker Eddy writes on page 293:3-6 of Science & Health: “Electricity is not a vital fluid, but the least material form of illusive consciousness, — the material mindlessness, which forms no link between matter and Mind, and which destroys itself.”
This statement, therefore, presents the question “What is the vital fluid?”. Light is the vital fluid. Light not of the Sun, Moon, fire or the light bulb, but the Light of Spirit — heavenly inspiration. This Light is Mind, Spirit, Soul, Principle, Life, Truth and Love. This Light is God, the Only, Divine Science which is the Light of man. This Light has no opposite. This Light is the ‘Tree of Life’. Electricity is the ‘Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil’, opposites, a positive and a negative, resulting in the belief of time, space, and matter. Therefore; it has no basis or foundation in Truth and is false and which destroys itself.
“Oil. Consecration; charity; gentleness; prayer; heavenly inspiration.” S&H p. 592:25. Consecration, charity, gentleness, prayer are the requirements placed on man to fill the lamp which holds the oil. The wick is that link which is that constant connection between Man and God and governs us. Burning the oil gives the Light of heavenly inspiration which always meets the needs of man. This oil is the second degree supporting the third degree. When burned, this oil enfolds the second degree with the Light of heavenly inspiration which is The Light of the third degree, understanding, reality, Generic Man.
A candle is not a lamp and a lamp is not a candle, however, both are a source of light. A lamp uses oil and a candle uses wax. The fuel for the lamp is oil, a liquid. The fuel for the candle is wax, a solid. Only by the heat of the flame can the wax become a liquid and be used for light as a liquid. Both the candle and the lamp use a wick connecting the liquid in the lamp and the liquid beneath a lit candle to produce a light.
How shall the peoples’ heart waxed gross be melted to understand, be converted, and healed? Heavenly inspiration is necessary. Only Mary Baker Eddy, the one chosen by God, the human appearing of the Woman of the Apocalypse that symbolizes Generic Man, opens our eyes and ears to the hypnotic belief imposed by matter. The wax of hypnotism hardened our hearts, blinded our eyes, and deafened our ears to the kingdom of God within us. The revelation and demonstration of Divine Science revealed by Mary Baker Eddy destroyed the hypnotic belief of matter. Mary Baker Eddy is the revelator and she began melting the hypnotic wax to provide the blessed light of heavenly inspiration for mankind.
