Avoiding Disappointment

One who regards himself as a complex human personality, combining good and bad traits, advantages, and handicaps, is apt to be disappointed with life in general, with himself, and with others. He may long to change his unsatisfactory mental state, but does not know how to set about it. One discovery he has already made, however, and that is that in the pursuit of purely temporal ends there is bound to be disappointment, since these run contrary to his higher nature, which is yearning for expression.

In "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 234) Mrs. Eddy writes, "The present codes of human systems disappoint the weary searcher after a divine theology, adequate to the right education of human thought." The right education required from childhood up and throughout the human experience is education in understanding the nature of God, infinite Love, and one's own nature as God's manifestation. Christian Science is blessing humanity through offering it just this concrete education. Obedience to God's beneficent laws rules out failure, for these laws provide infinite achievement for one and all.
