Right Balance

A well-balanced person is regarded generally as an individual who exercises good judgment in attending to his human affairs—one who does not swing to extremes in one direction or in another; one who is not precipitate in determining a course of procedure, finding later, perhaps, that it may be necessary to retrace his steps; one who does not procrastinate so that his steps, when taken, lose their effectiveness; one who expresses a high sense of integrity in his dealings with others.

In considering balance, one may instinctively think of an instrument for weighing. A Christian Scientist seeks to attain to that state of consciousness which, while it is consistent with the absolute truth about God and man, also takes cognizance of the sense of things in human experience. Christian Science teaches that the good which is necessary for human welfare rightfully belongs to man, and that man cannot be deprived of it. Therefore, in striving to gain true equanimity Christian Science is found to be indispensable.
