"Stick to the truth of being"

A STUDENT of Christian Science whose acquaintance with the subject had covered many years, and whose experiences included many satisfactory demonstrations of God's ever-presence, was nevertheless puzzled over his inability to solve a certain business problem. This disconcerting condition had seemed so persistent that it had almost caused the student to doubt the ability of Christian Science to operate in this particular field of correction.

After much prayer and study, however, the student's attention was drawn to a passage on page 418 of the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," wherein Mary Baker Eddy admonishes, "Stick to the truth of being in contradistinction to the error that life, substance, or intelligence can be in matter." A sudden illumination seemed to come from the first word of this injunction, so much so that it has ever since stood out to him as an important and pertinent word.
