"If we faint not"

In "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 322) Mrs. Eddy says: "The sharp experiences of belief in the supposititious life of matter, as well as our disappointments and ceaseless woes, turn us like tired children to the arms of divine Love. Then we begin to learn Life in divine Science. Without this process of weaning, 'Canst thou by searching find out God?'"

During the study of this passage, attention was arrested by the significance of the word "weaning." The word "wean" means "to reconcile to giving up or to the loss of former pleasures or possessions, especially by insensible degrees; as, He weaned himself from stimulants; she was weaned from society." It thus appeared to the student that "this process of weaning" may be both active and passive.
