The Beauty of Quietness

In the midst of material clamor, uproar, tumult, and discord, one may wonder how he can escape from the noise and restlessness to a quiet place, and find sacred stillness, alone with God. Through the study and application of Christian Science we learn how to apply the truth which makes it possible for us to dwell in the realm of spiritual harmony, and find quietude and rest in the midst of our daily activities. Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, writes in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 495), "Let Christian Science, instead of corporeal sense, support your understanding of being, and this understanding will supplant error with Truth, replace mortality with immortality, and silence discord with harmony."

When we recognize the scientific facts, through the understanding of God's allness and man's immortality, we come naturally into the atmosphere of Truth, wherein we live, move, and have our perfect, harmonious being. Thus with receptive hearts and spiritual altertness we may hear God's voice and feel His presence above the din and roar, and even amidst the jostling crowds of the city. Spiritually equipped with constructive, uplifted thoughts, we walk in the truth of being, and have the ability to restrain corporeal sense, through realizing the omnipotence of divine Mind, and the perfection of man as God's infinite idea, upright and spiritual. Pure, scientific thoughts, based on the understanding of Christian Science, afford quiet resting places along the highways of life, mental retreats where we may renew our understanding of being and find our true existence in divine Love.
