Our Feet upon the Mountains

What are we, as Christian Scientists, doing about the so-called laws of finity and limitation which, like the laws of gravity, claim to keep our burdened feet chained to the earth?

A young student had to walk a long way to and from her work each day. She began to wonder why it was that on these journeys her feet felt weary and unwieldy, when during her dancing classes they seemed to move with agility and ease. The reason, she saw, was that through her interest in the music and dancing she forgot herself, and material beliefs were thus set aside. In like manner, spiritual inspiration lifts us into the realm of the real, just as earth-bound attractions seem to hold us to the earth.
