The Sanctuary of Spirit

The ninety-first Psalm begins with the hallowed words, "He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty;" and the Psalm goes on to show how, abiding there, one is sheltered and protected. How wonderfully those spiritually-minded seers of the Hebrew race arrived at a measure of the truth, expressing their understanding of it in language so simple that hardly anyone can fail to apprehend something of its meaning! The ninety-first Psalm is one of the finest pieces of literature in any language. It is questionable whether any other single piece of writing has done more to bless mankind; and this, because it leads the humble of heart into the very sanctuary of Spirit, where there is abundance of comfort and healing.

"The secret place of the most High"! How is this "secret place," this sacred place, this sanctuary of Spirit, to be entered, where refuge is assured? The answer is, Through prayer. And, as Mrs. Eddy says on page 15 of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," "to enter into the heart of prayer, the door of the erring senses must be closed. Lips must be mute and materialism silent, that man may have audience with Spirit, the divine Principle, Love, which destroys all error." There is thus a sure mode of entrance to the sanctuary of Spirit.
