I stay with Mis. 182:5-13: “‘As many as received him;’ that is, as many as perceive man’s actual existence in and of his divine Principle, receive the Truth of existence; and these have no other God, no other Mind, no other origin; therefore in time they lose their false sense of existence, and find their adoption with the Father; to wit, the redemption of the body. Through divine Science man gains the power to become the son of God, to recognise his perfect and eternal estate.” For having no origin in time or the past, there is only the now of eternal Life, and therefore in the time or temporal world we lose a false sense.

Also Mis. 258:12-19: “In the spiritual Genesis of creation, all law was vested in the Lawgiver, who was a law to Himself. In divine Science, God is One and All; and governing Himself, He governs the universe. This is the law of creation: ‘My defense is of God, which saveth the upright in heart.’ And that infinite Mind governs all things. On this infinite Principle of freedom, God named Himself, I AM.”
