We read in II Corinthians, "Be perfect, be of good comfort, be of one mind, live in peace; and the God of love and peace shall be with you." From this we learn that by being "of one mind" we live in peace. Peace of mind is that undivided state of consciousness wherein confidence in God's goodness allows no recognition of distrust, envy, hate, or any other destructive element. Through the portals of thought come God's messages, and if we listen only to them we shall find in everything we behold aright God's perfect expression.

Side by side with one's conscious efforts to realize and demonstrate divine law in one's own life there runs a counterfeit whispering of imperfection and rumors of wars; this is mortal mind's method of attempting to harness us to its insubstantial shadow. If we listened to the argument, it would lead us on to speculate about the progress of Christian Science throughout the world; it would suggest that some countries are better fitted than others to receive the truths of Christian Science, while some are far distant from spiritual light. In this line of reasoning we are a law unto ourselves, for inasmuch as we are beguiled into carrying along the counterfeit in our own consciousness, to that degree are we attributing foundation to a lie. Time was no factor in Paul's conversion. He was bent upon a mission of persecution, but by the time he neared his destination his purpose was entirely reversed by the revelation of Truth.
