A Lesson in Perspective

TO the Christian Scientist, taking his journey out of materiality into the promised land of spiritual reality and looking for tokens of divine guidance all along the way, many a seemingly trivial incident furnishes instruction and inspiration. The light of spiritual understanding, gained from the study of Christian Science, now illumines all things,—even the face of nature,—and, looking more and more with the "seeing eye," the Christian Scientist perceives many a beautiful hint of spiritual truth in the familiar environment of everyday life.

Thus to one student came a comforting lesson from a simple observation during a morning walk. Her path lay along a high ridge of land, and was bordered by a wire fence. However necessary this fence may have seemed to the farmer whose land it separated from the highway, to the Scientist it spoke of nothing but limitation and restriction. Meditating, as she walked, on certain claims of error which were seeming to hem her in and restrict her rightful activity in life, she saw nothing but ugliness in the wire fence upon which her eyes were fastened.
