"If I had time!" This exclamation is one frequently made. It occurs to me that a demonstration over a sense of lack of time may be helpful to some one. I am a teacher, and at the beginning of the school year there seemed to be a burden of work that was almost unbearable; there was no leisure, and the constant feeling of hurry was very trying. I finally realized that this was one of my problems, and that in Christian Science I had my rules for the solution of all problems. This thought aroused me, and I at once saw the error of my position. I realized that we are now in eternity, and that time is but a human concept; in reality, there is no time, so there should be no haste. In Mind all action is harmonious, deliberate, and there are no burdens. As an idea of God, reflecting His attributes, I found that I was free from all sense of burden, haste, and anxiety. Realizing this, and resting in the thought, brought freedom. My work is done with less effort than ever before and with more harmonious results. There is no feeling of hurry and the burden has vanished, so I feel that my problem is solved, and I am grateful to our Leader who has given us a practical knowledge of the Truth that indeed liberates.
