The Second Mile

'Tis writ on earth, on leaf and flower:Love hath one race, one realm, one power.

So writes the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, Mary Baker Eddy (Poems, p. 22). But behold the efforts of the human mind to reverse each clause of this wonderful statement. "Look about you," saith the material scorner. "Where in the whole realm of physical sense can one find justification for such a theory? Nature presents not evidence of one power, but many powers; mankind surely draws slowly to the idealism of 'one race, one realm,' as witness the never ending upheavals of earth and the fearful collisions of divergent beliefs and opinions. Why," possibly continues the scorner, "behold the evidence of minds many even among Christian Science workers—those who claim to be following and serving the one Mind!"
