All must follow the same way to heaven, harmony; but all do not have exactly the same experiences as they travel along that way. It is as though a number of automobiles had set out for a certain place. They start at different times; and some reach the crossroads at night, some in the daytime. If at night, they may have difficulty in finding and reading the signpost which tells them what road to take. Those passing in the daytime, however, easily read the sign, and speed on without delay. They would also be apt to encounter different obstacles. So, at the end of the journey each would have a different story to tell of the experiences on the way. Yet there is no doubt as to the ultimate outcome of the trip, as with the assistance of similar guidebooks, maps, signposts, and friendly advice each is bound to reach, sooner or later, the destination which all are seeking.

None of us have to travel over uncharted seas. Christ Jesus, our Way-shower, went on before; and when he rose above material vision he promised the Comforter would come to point the way to divine Principle. Of this Comforter, Jesus said, "When he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth." Mrs. Eddy has written in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 55), "This Comforter I understand to be Divine Science." Through Christian Science, waywarks are to be found all along the road, leading to the recognition of true existence in Spirit, God. The Bible and Mrs. Eddy's writings are guides that gently admonish us in the way to health and holiness; and our periodicals bring daily, weekly, and monthly messages, telling of the experiences of our brothers and sisters on the road.
