The True Adventure

[Written Especially for Young People]

Adventure which has always interested the youthful thought is not beyond the reach of the average young person. The voyage of living is a glorious adventure, and the home port towards which we are bound may be called dominion. Our quest involves the discovery of our true characteristics and the confirmation of our true identity. Our care in selecting reliable charts and our skill in using them ensure the safety of our expedition and the realization of our quest. Because the revealed truth of the Bible, as explained by Christian Science, is provable here and now, it affords young people a reliable compass by which to steer their mental craft away from the conflicting thought-currents of the present day.

The innumerable thoughts which are continually being presented to one's consciousness are either rejected or translated into words and deeds. Thought based upon material, human theory is unreliable because it identifies conduct and experience with the unreal. In contrast, Christian Science reveals the realm of reality to be the realm of spiritual right thinking. Advancing from the changeless perfection and allness of God, Mind, thought arrives at the unstainable perfection of God's image, the true man or true selfhood. As the discovery is made that true selfhood is Godlike, and therefore expresses spiritual qualities and aspirations, one's conduct and experience become identified with limitless good. The realm of reality thus offers a vast opportunity for exploration little dreamed of by those who think in terms of the trivial, the commonplace, the petty, the material.
