Human and Divine Experience

Students of Christian Science often speak or write of what is termed human experience. And this is quite natural, inasmuch as a dictionary defines "experience," in part, as follows: "The sum total of the conscious events which compose an individual life." Human experience, then, is that which includes all the events of which so-called human beings are conscious.

Human experience, as ordinarily viewed, is far from being satisfactory or satisfying. It involves much in the nature of disappointment, futile effort, failure, suffering—discord of various kinds. It is doubtful if anyone would be able honestly to claim that he is entirely satisfied with what is regarded as his human experience. Furthermore, it is probable that most persons of mature years would be quite ready to admit that their human experience, as a whole, has been far from satisfying.
