"Lord, who shall abide in thy tabernacle? who shall dwell in thy holy hill? He that walketh uprightly, and worketh righteousness, and speaketh the truth in his heart." These verses from a psalm of David define spiritual environment and characterize the mental qualities of him who dwells therein.

The beginner in Christian Science, bewildered possibly at the seeming utter disconnection between the heavenly consciousness of home and his own unhappy surroundings, not knowing, perhaps, just how to go about his mental work, and groping anxiously for a correct metaphysical attitude, may be relieved to know that he may safely apply that which brings healing to any situation,—a little tenderness and love. No metaphysical work can be accomplished while hate and rebellion remain in the heart. Discordant surroundings, uncongenial persons, monotonous occupations, cannot be transformed by condemnation. But by daily turning away from the false testimony of material sense to the sweetness and gentleness and illumination of Love, false concepts concerning home, companions, and work are healed.
