Truth-filled Thought

The transformation of mortal thought, whereby old things pass away and all things become new, is to the Christian Scientist the royal road whereon Paul met Christ. If, like Paul, the vision blinds him with its overwhelming promise, he too has a probationary period when he finds himself in the desert of human belief, there to work out his problem with God. The voice of spiritual understanding remains still and small until it finds its utterance in the minutiae of daily life, when, like the grain of mustard-seed, it displaces all else with its own growing vigor.

The transformation of one's whole concept of life from the material to the spiritual seems a vast undertaking at first sight, and one may easily despond if to his sense the desert period discounts his vision's hope with its long struggle. The fault lies not in the vision or in the desert, but in our own failure to apply the truth. Christian Science is simple. When one does not find it simple, it is his own confusion and not the truth which is at fault. Christian Science is founded on the gospels, and the Master's admonition to become as a little child points to its simplicity, while his loving invitation to the weary and heavy laden to come unto him fulfils its promise of rest for those who have found its truth.
