Enlightenment

In the prophecy of Isaiah we read: "The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light: they that dwell in the land of the shadow of death, upon them hath the light shined." Before we knew of the truth as taught by Mrs. Eddy in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," many of us walked in darkness, because of our belief in material laws, so called, laws of health and of sickness, and that they had power to create and to destroy. The constant dread and fear which this belief brought in its train, made our plight a sorry one by reason of its utter hopelessness. As understanding grows, however, through study of the law of Life as taught in Christian Science, it enables us to demonstrate with assurance and certainty the truth of being, to know that "the flesh profiteth nothing," Spirit alone having all power. Then we are set free from the bondage of fear.

In Science and Health (p. 255) Mrs. Eddy says, "'Let there be light,' is the perpetual demand of Truth and Love, changing chaos into order and discord into the music of the spheres." This sentence was brought vividly to thought some time since, when traveling over the St. Gothard railway. The morning was gray and cold, and everything was hidden under a heavy mist that entirely obliterated the mountains. Entering the tunnel under these weather conditions, sunshine seemed very far away. The time occupied in passing through the tunnel was about twenty-five minutes, and as the train rushed along the noise was so great that the travelers with one accord lapsed into silence.
