Sooner or later, for each one of us, all other considerations as a basis of action must make way for us to follow our Master in his acknowledgment of God's omnipotence, as he prayed, "Not my will, but thine, be done." It is in Christian Science that one is shown the way to find man as God's reflection, for it teaches us to lay down our "earthly all." In "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" Mrs. Eddy shows the result of such relinquishment. On page 55 she says, "The time for the reappearing of the divine healing is throughout all time; and whosoever layeth his earthly all on the altar of divine Science, drinketh of Christ's cup now, and is endued with the spirit and power of Christian healing." With this healing power comes also the satisfaction to which the psalmist referred when he said, "I shall be satisfied, whenI awake, with thy likeness." The understanding of how to attain this peace and joy comes to us step by step. "Not my will, my human way, but Thine, O God!" This prayer needs to be within our heart daily, hourly. Our lesson is to learn not to be governed by mortal mind but to reflect God, divine Mind.

Being born in a material world mortals depend upon this form of matter or that, or upon this person or that. Yet does such dependence bring contentment? No. Mortals cannot give what they have not themselves. God is the source of all supply; yet how mankind clings to the arm of flesh! Often do we need to ask ourselves, Upon which are we depending, upon the so-called human or the divine Mind? In the light of Christian Science we are taught to turn to the substantial, the real, to divine Mind, God, knowing that as His child man reflects all that God is, has, or does. In proportion as we do this we receive, here and now; our need is met. We prove this again and again.
