The True Home

Each one's consciousness is more or less occupied with thoughts about home, the desire for a home; or, having a home, that it may be perfected. Some such ideal seems ever with us; and because of falling so far short of it, few are ever satisfied.

The writer had for years a yearning which would not be stilled for a home that would satisfy; but the longing was largely confined to the style of house, its position and outlook. One day she awoke to the fact that a change of thought about home was what was really needed. In Christian Science we are learning to look beyond the symbol, the material expression, to find the reality. We read in the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy (p. 123), "Divine Science, rising above physical theories, excludes matter, resolves things into thoughts, and replaces the objects of material sense with spiritual ideas." If we are finding the thoughts or spiritual ideas that constitute the real, we are seeing through things or mere material appearances.
