IF associated with good, the word "abiding" opens vistas of peace and contentment. Whether we think of good itself as abiding or of our abiding in good, a sense of sweet calm and comfort invariably unfolds, which stills the clamor and discontent of human belief. For thousands of years men have turned with a sense of security and hope to the song of the Psalmist, "He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty."

Until Christian Science was revealed, however, men did not understand the full meaning of either the dwelling or the abiding to which the Psalmist refers. Not until the truth of God's omnipresence as infinite divine Mind, infinite good, was proclaimed in Mrs. Eddy's teachings did it become plain to mankind that to dwell "in the secret place of the most High" means that constant communion with God which enables one to prove himself to be the reflection of perfect intelligence. To gain even a glimpse of this wonderful truth is indeed to learn something of the possibility of abiding in God's secret place.
