Life's Boundaries Dispelled

To those who have groped for many years through myriad forms of human hope, who have found life enthralled by rigid limitations, bounded by sense, the revealing white light of Christian Science comes as a divine deliverance. Until that boundary of sense is wholly dispelled, mortals are constantly searching for seeming blessings which, when finally found and grasped, are bitterness, and which proves as illusive as the winds.

When this wondrous light descends upon us, those of us who have wasted many of our precious years in search of the false attributes of life, who have gone so far to find so little, pause at the new and almost incomprehensible experience of going nowhere and finding much. It is the day of revelation when we learn that Life, in its mighty and only meaning, is a vast sunlit plain upon which no horizon descends.

Christian Science does not teach us to record our losses and failures; it does not bid us to make of our lives a history of attempts, but rather a history of achievements, and in its promise of progress the day or the year is not really lost to those who at length tear away all the old, gray wrappings of dust and find their true selves revealed.
