Making Our Demonstration

Frequently one hears it said that a certain individual is not making his or her demonstration; or perhaps the suggestion is, I am not making my demonstration! But is this always true? Is it not, perhaps, a specific outlined result that is not being brought about; and is that necessarily the real demonstration? Maybe the claim is one of lack of this world's goods,—money or material possessions,—and the student seems hardly able to hold his own; or a physical disability may not be yielding so quickly as one may think it should; or a domestic tangle may seem to be slow in untangling.

Before passing judgment it is always well for us to realize that all that can possibly be demonstrated is the truth, each individual demonstration being one wherein a quality of divine Mind is proved true in any particular case. Remembering that a quality of divine Mind is the truth to be proved true, let us then ponder more intelligently whether or not the demonstration is being made.
