Right Effort

From the June 12, 1926 issue of the Christian Science Sentinel


True effort is not the exercising of one's own sense of human will nor the result of listening to another's opinion; it is the active, natural resistance in the individual consciousness to erroneous beliefs of lack, apathy, self-depreciation, depression, discouragement, fear,—the beliefs of a selfhood apart from God,—and the demonstration of the ever operative control of divine Principle. This true effort in individual consciousness results in receptivity and obedience to the "still small voice" of Truth, which is continuously seeking admittance thereto.
