The Traveler and the Road

When one starts on a journey, he usually has in thought a definite point which he desires to reach. And if he is wise, he procures guidebooks or seeks other right sources for information as to how best to attain his objective.

One beginning the study of Christian Science may be said to be starting on a journey; and there are certain guidebooks provided for his use and benefit. And if wise, he is careful to select these and no others. As he intelligently follows the instructions given therein, he finds himself on the right road and proceeding in an orderly manner towards his desired goal. These guidebooks are the Bible, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" and the other writings of Mary Baker Eddy, and the authorized literature of The Christian Science Publishing Society in Boston, Massachusetts.

The beginner necessarily starts at the point where Christian Science found him physically, mentally, spiritually. He may know but little of the steps to be taken and the road to follow in his search for betterment in conditions which have seemed to exist; but with an earnest, honest desire for guidance, he starts out in confident expectancy of good, and in his experiences finds verified the Psalmist's statement, "Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path."
