Calm

TENNYSON wrote, "There is no joy but calm." In the hurly-burly of the business world today this is appreciated by those yearning for peace and assurance. Christian Scientists turn to "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" for comfort and healing. On page 415 of this book Mary Baker Eddy writes, "To remove the error producing disorder, you must calm and instruct mortal mind with immortal Truth." And onpage 454 she says, "Wait patiently for divine Love to move upon the waters of mortal mind, and form the perfect concept." In both passages our Leader points out the need for calm in the unfolding of the healing truth.

A student of Christian Science was required to do some very delicate work in a large textile plant. This work demanded care, accuracy, and speed. At first it seemed almost impossible to gain the required qualities and to combine them effectively, and he found himself becoming discouraged and confused. Then the above-quoted words of our Leader came to his thought. Suddenly it became clear to him that he was suffering from impatience, together with an anxiety lest he might not be able to complete his quota. A sense of deep gratitude came to him for this unfoldment, and he then quietly addressed his thought to his work. The work was then easily and joyfully completed. The recognition of "the error producing disorder" led quickly to its destruction.
