Result of Rectification

One evening a student was endeavoring to read and ponder an article on Christian Science, but the persistent barking of a dog in the neighborhood was so disconcerting that satisfactory study seemed impossible. The student realized that it was entirely within his province to experience the proper manifestation of a state of harmony, so he set about a careful examination of his own thoughts to discover the difficulty and work out a correction.

First, there was found a feeling of resentment at being disturbed during what he felt was a righteous occupation. As the barking continued, the resentment developed into anger and the thought that something should be done to prevent the disturbance of the neighborhood. This naturally led into hatred of the animal itself; and therein was seen the root of the whole process of disturbed thought.
