Christian Science Treatment

[Original article in German]

When we step into a dark room, holding up a very small light, even this small glow lightens the room; the darkness is not so deep as before. When we enter a dark room with a powerful lamp, this lightens the room even more. When we enter a dark room and bring with us a flood of light, the darkness is dispersed and dispelled.

The dark room illustrates human consciousness, darkened by fear, sin, and ignorance. The longing for release from these evils begins to open the door to freedom. If the longing is feeble, our receptivity is restricted. But as the longing becomes greater, the door of our thought opens wider and the light of spiritual illumination penetrates more and more. When this longing expands into an expectation of good which is free from doubt, our consciousness is flooded with spiritual light.
