"The mounting sense"

"The mounting sense gathers fresh forms and strange fire from the ashes of dissolving self, and drops the world." Thus writes our beloved Leader, Mary Baker Eddy, on the first page of "Miscellaneous Writings." How truly this clearly stated fact describes the mental experience of an earnest student of Christian Science. "The mounting sense" certainly and surely "gathers fresh forms and strange fire from the ashes of dissolving self," these definitely supplanting the false sense of the world, which is dropped.

One way in which "fresh forms and strange fire" become apparent is through the student's eager desire to do more for others than he has ever done. "Dissolving self" demands the fruits of pure unselfishness, and the student's eyes are opened to the genuine and deep joy of making others happy, of healing them when Christian Science healing is desired, or otherwise ministering to their needs.
