Fixing Our Gaze on Truth

Mrs. Eddy writes in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 261), "Hold thought steadfastly to the enduring, the good, and the true, and you will bring these into your experience proportionably to their occupancy of your thoughts." She also says (ibid.,p. 133), "In national prosperity, miracles attended the successes of the Hebrews; but when they departed from the true idea, their demoralization began."

"When they departed from the true idea"! How many times in our passage from sense to Soul are we tempted to depart from the true idea! Through the healing of some disease believed to be incurable we catch a glimpse of the power of Truth, and in our gratitude and joy we bravely start forward, thinking that all our problems are nearing solution. We see the path shining ahead of us, and rejoice that we have thrown off the burden which seemed to hold us back.
