Laying Down False Burdens

[Original article in German]

DESPITE the wonderful simplicity of the teachings of Christian Science, the truth of which is to-day being proved by great numbers of people, one sometimes hears the question asked, with an undertone of despair, "Why do I not get my healing?" Yet it is evident that what has proved itself to be practical in some cases can certainly be proved so in every case through an understanding of divine Principle and obedience to its rules. But since here it is a question of the Science of God, and of man's relationship to God, we may have to reckon with a difficulty which is not always clearly recognized.

Through his education or his own outlook, almost everyone has built up for himself a concept of Deity which does not correspond with reality. This concept has rooted itself deep in his consciousness and is closely associated with all his thoughts and feelings; and until, through true perception, his knowledge rests on the right foundation, there will exist much confusion and contradiction, which hinder practical progress.
