"Where there is no vision, the people perish," we are told in Proverbs. Truth and error are direct opposites; one is real, the other illusion. Since the mist arose and clouded the vision, as recorded in Genesis, mankind has been struggling to reconcile the one with the other, until to-day, wrapped in a shroud of illusion, men often cry out in the agony of fear and suffering, "Lord, save us: we perish."

Vision is recognition of Truth through spiritual perception. Obviously, true spiritual vision, which is the perception of God's omnipotence, omnipresence, and omniscience, must appear to man. Through the study of Christian Science the truth is unfolded, and man's divine inheritance is revealed. Men thus learn to separate the real from the unreal. They see that their experiences are the direct results of their own thinking, outward manifestations of their inward thoughts. No two mortals see the so-called material world in the same way; and this proves that it is a varying mental concept with no other basis than material belief; that the whole material system of living is the result of finite thinking.
