"The sunshine of Truth"

In a western state there is a range of mountains, with a well-known peak towering above the rest. Indeed, many miles out on the plains, this mountain can be seen when no other is visible. I have lived for many years under the shadow of this peak. At another time, I lived nearly fifty miles away from it; but the peak and its surrounding summits could still be seen easily. I became accustomed to look forward each morning to the sight,—always the same, yet ever new, in the changing lights and shadows, in the varying hues and tones of its constant blue. The sight of it was ever an inspiration, ever a joy.

Turning away from the material to the spiritual interpretation of being, we find in the Bible and in our Leader's writings many helpful passages referring to mountains. In Psalms we read, "As the mountains are round about Jerusalem, so the Lord is round about his people from henceforth even for ever;" also, "I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help." In "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 511) Mrs. Eddy writes, "Spiritually interpreted, rocks and mountains stand for solid and grand ideas."
