"Quiet resting places"

It would be well if these words of Isaiah were kept in constant remembrance: "And the work of righteousness shall be peace; and the effect of righteousness quietness and assurence for ever. And my people shall dwell in a peaceable habitation, and in sure dwellings, and in quiet resting places." Far too often there seems to be lacking that quietness and assurance which ought always to accompany the understanding of Truth. Christian Science should bring to all who apprehend its teachings confidence and peace, enabling them to dwell continually in "quiet resting places."

The chief disturbers of the peace of mankind are sin and fear and the exercise of human will. Wherever these are found, there is certain to be unrest, lack of harmony, and, frequently, disease. Sin is seemingly responsible for innumerable ills; fear apparently is the direct cause of untold suffering; while so-called human will, that blind and stubborn mentality which has its spurious origin in human egotism, is the inveterate foe of harmony and peace. They are the tyrants of the human race, seemingly wielding enormous sway and yielding only to the power of spirituality.
