Our Present Existence Illumined

The student of Christian Science is gaining a constantly increasing appreciation of the import of the writings of Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, by proving their practical application in human affairs. Now human experience seems to be a complication of problems, with rough spots, byways, and pitfalls; and many of earth's weary pilgrims are eagerly looking for some illumined way out of the difficulties. The Psalmist pointed to such a way when in praise to God he said, "Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path."

Mrs. Eddy has written in "Miscellaneous Writings" (p. 196), "The sweet, sacred sense and permanence of man's unity with his Maker, in Science, illumines our present existence with the ever-presence and power of God, good." "Man's unity with his Maker" is an established scientific fact, and this fact should be as readily recognized as is the fact of the relationship between the sun and its rays. As we reach this spiritual point of view, the path becomes illumined and the human way begins to follow the divine as we yield to the guidance of Mind, God. The source of all intelligence is divine Mind; and as we reflect, or express, the light of divine intelligence we see just how and where to go.
