At times, when a student of Christian Science is confronted with a problem to work out and is seeking healing, he spends so much thought in mental research and probing that he is apt to find himself in a maze. Even those who are considered faithful students of Christian Science occasionally find that progress in the solution of their problems has seemingly come to a standstill. Thoughts such as these may be tempting them: Why does not my metaphysical work show some results? I surely have been working on this problem for a long time, and by now I should be experiencing relief. When will this problem be met?

Are they not defeating their very aims by thinking such thoughts? Surely in them are discernible doubt, impatience, desire for merely material comfort rather than primarily for spiritual unfoldment; belief that inharmonious conditions do exist; and formulation of what the result should be, rather than dependence upon God, divine Mind, for the right solution. The evasiveness of these false beliefs may be seen in the fact that they are all unknowingly being held by the student.
