Onward and Upward

A Student of the divine metaphysics of Christian Science and an investigator of the phenomena of material existence are not unlike two men standing at the foot of a mountain range, the one intent upon scaling the heights above, the other on penetrating deeper and ever deeper into the mass before him in search of the good he desires. The farther the materialist progresses, the darker the way and the denser his surroundings, the sharper his sense of limitation, and the greater his dependence upon artificial means of sustaining life is apt to become. The higher the Christian Scientist climbs, the broader his outlook and the less limited his vision; until, as he moves onward and upward, he experiences more and ever more of the freedom Samuel Longfellow portrays in the words:—

The freer step, the fuller breath,
The wide horizon's grander view,
The sense of Life that knows no death,—
The Life that maketh all things new.
