Onward and Upward

In all her writings Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, points out the absolute necessity for each one to turn his thoughts away from a contemplation of materiality to a higher basis of thought—spiritual ideals. In this way one can attain that "peace of God, which passeth all understanding," that is, harmony in the home, in business, and in general human experience.

To be able to say, "Peace, be still," to the myriad forms in which error seems to express itself is the goal toward which mankind is constantly moving. Actually, everybody wants good, though the comprehension of what constitutes good differs according to the mentality of those who seek it. Many, in spite of their wealth and success, are restless and fearful. To others, struggling with problems of lack, disease, or other discord, the prized and sought-for possession of good seems ever out of reach.

How inexpressibly grateful we should be that through Christian Science all may learn how to gain dominion over such conditions, because God never created them! Mrs. Eddy's teachings all point thought away from the self-centered personality commonly called "myself" to the true spiritual selfhood. Christian Science points to the great "I AM THAT I AM," God, perfect Being, infinite Mind, as the source of spiritual reality.
