If time, as a human concept, is unknown to divine Mind, it is unknown to that man whose only Ego is the divine Mind, and human beings, laying off their mortality, must turn to divine consciousness that realizes infinity and immortality. The apprehension of infinity does not, however, come through the study of human philosophy, but rather dawns gradually and calmly, as one is prepared to receive revelation through prayer, consecration, and spiritual activity.

The fitful, purposeless, restless movement of mortal mind is healed by the divine Mind. Exchanging sensuous dreaming for God–directed thinking, the student of Christian Science finds himself more and more thinking in the present tense. He rests in the consciousness of ever present Love, and so is constantly endeavoring to realize that divine Love heals and protects, that good is, and that man is in heaven, harmonious, at peace. If thought reverts to the past, he realizes that the past is healed; if he considers the future, it is only to know that Love will take care of it; but it is in the present that he really lives. Hour by hour, moment by moment, such a one depends on divine Love for guidance and inspiration. Instead of looking forward with apprehension to some dreaded circumstance, he realizes to the full the protection of the present moment, knowing that by so doing his future hours will unfold normally as an expression of God's government,—concordant, secure.
