Insistence on Harmony

EVERY Christian Science student recognizes the necessity and value of mental work, the purpose of this mental work being to establish in thought the clear, scientific, true concept of God as All-in-all, and to clear away the illusions and errors of material sense.

It has been the experience of most of us that one such realization each morning has been insufficient to carry us harmoniously through the day and enable us to meet the varying demands made upon us by business or home activities. As the hours glide by, the realization of God as the supreme power may become dimmed by the action and reaction of human motives and affections; and through this relaxation of our spiritual clasp, problems may take on undue importance. The student should not forget, therefore, to maintain during his activities that clarity of spiritual perception which was reached at the time of doing his mental work.

To bring about an orderly, harmonious unfoldment of good in one's daily routine, one must mentally sustain spiritual perception by reiterated insistence upon the truths of being. Thought must be constantly refreshed with these truths about God and His government of the universe. For this is one of the means by which they may be brought abundantly into experience.
