Satisfaction

THE human race is a race of seekers. So-called mortal mind is always seeking something. It goes hither and yon, making unceasing efforts, and always in quest of something. Its search is for the most part doomed to failure, doomed to end in disappointment. If we were to search for a word which would fittingly describe the long-sought-for goal, probably none would more succinctly describe the end and aim of all human struggles than the word "satisfaction." Thus humanity is ever striving for satisfying peace, contentment, and happiness. The ways and means devised by human thought are almost countless; but in the end they all alike prove vain and unsatisfying.

Christian Science has come to this age to meet its deepest human need, and to satisfy fully its most earnest longings. The word "satisfaction" comes from two Latin words: satis, meaning full or enough, and facere, to make or cause. Christian Science makes perfectly clear the cause of the fruitless search for satisfaction in the past, and proves unmistakably how it is to be gained and retained fully and permanently. Divine metaphysics teaches us that God, infinite good, can alone satisfy man; for He alone is unlimited, unrestricted, infinite. On page 481 of our textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," Mrs. Eddy says that "God's being is infinity, freedom, harmony, and boundless bliss." God's goodness, mercy, and loving-kindness are illimitable, immeasurable; and when we look to such an inexhaustible source for our health, harmony, and happiness, we never look in vain.
