The Journey

Through his endeavors to make practical his understanding of Truth, to apply the law of God in solving every problem of his daily life, the Christian Scientist is continuously progressing in the way of holiness. The enthusiasm of the explorer, the glad surprise of beholding novel scenes, the zest of right activity, furnish the traveler with constant cause for gratitude. Let us not be so intent on the goal of the journey, the complete answer to our problem, that we miss the joy of experiencing to the full the unfolding of spiritual ideas along each step of the way. Mrs. Eddy tells us what a glorious opportunity is ours, to-day, when she writes on page 158 of Miscellany, "We live in an age of Love's divine adventure to be All-in-all."

Though our individual aims vary, all of us aspire to reach the goal of complete fulfillment. Whether our need is for better health, more congenial surroundings, wider opportunity for the expression of artistic talent; whether we are suffering from a belief in poverty or sorrow, or whether it is sin in its obvious or more subtle forms that is troubling us—whatever it may be that confronts us, we know that the solution to our problem is in Mind, and that we gain the correct answer when we look wholly to Truth and not to human will for assistance.
