A Practical Philosophy

Christian history has always been illumined, in some degree, by the torch of holy aspiration and endeavor, and as one thinks of the number of brave hearts which in the past centuries have struggled on and on in the dark, he finds himself moved by a deepning sense of gratitude that upon his pathway and problem has shone a great light.

There can never be any mastery until the truth is known about the thing to be mastered, and therefore we cannot hope to overcome evil until we have a right sense of its nature; namely, that it is untrue and hence unreal to all truth-knowers. One might expect mortals to be glad to learn this fact regarding the source of all their miseries, but experience shows that, on the contrary, human sense resists this teaching; hence the necessity of that line-upon-line emphasis which Mrs. Eddy has given it in her statement and exposition of Christian Science.
