Finding True Satisfaction

All human endeavor, whether it be in the line of science, art, or industry, is an effort to find satisfaction of some sort. Humanity has tried various ways and followed different human doctrines in its attempt to find satisfaction. Yet no human theory or teaching as to how to achieve perfect satisfaction has proved to be successful.

Nevertheless there is a way to fulfill this universal craving. The teachings of Christian Science not only show why the human search for satisfaction has been a failure, but also reveal the way to find true and continuous satisfaction. Throughout the ages, mortal man, in his search for happiness, has intuitively surmised the fact that true satisfaction is attainable and rightfully belongs to man.

Webster's dictionary defines "satisfy" in part as "to gratify fully... to make content." To find satisfaction, then, or that which satisfies, means to have all one's right desires and wishes gratified, fulfilled. Is such a thing possible? In the light of Christian Science we see not only that it is possible, but that man in his real, spiritual nature is always at the standpoint of satisfaction. In proportion as one awakens to this fact, his human experiences will be of a truly satisfying nature.
