EXPLORERS AND THEIR ACHIEVEMENTS

The recent newspaper notices of Commander Peary's achievements in polar research not only recall the many attempts to reach the North Pole which have been made in the past, but also bring to memory the heroic efforts which led to the discovery of this continent. In both cases the brave navigators had to encounter the distrust and incredulity of the greater number of their fellow-men, and opposition which was based upon the assumption that certain things are impossible and therefore should not be attempted.

In reviewing the history of many who have marked out the way of the world's progress, in any direction, it is easy to see that their greatest hindrances have come from the opposition of those who knew little or nothing of the problems involved, rather than from the inherent difficulties of these problems. The so-called mortal mind tends to go on forever in the narrow orbit of its own limited concept of man's possibilities, and resents the thought that the universe is an open book to him who apprehends God aright. Because the Virgin-mother heard and heeded the angelic assurance, "With God nothing shall be impossible," Christ Jesus came to bless the world not only in his own day, but to time's latest hour, by leading the way to "the new heaven and the new earth" of Spirit's creating.
