Self-Correction—and Freedom

Christian Scientists in general find themselves progressively free about expression. But if one of them seems limited in that way, so that he does not feel free to speak in public, for example, he readily sees that his need is simply to correct a false sense of himself. He understands that, in reality, expression is not something which he has to achieve, but that it is rather what he is. "Man," Mary Baker Eddy declares (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 470), "is the expression of God's being;" and she shows elsewhere that this expression, being the direct outgiving of the divine nature, is necessarily perfect and unlimited.

As the Christian Scientist earnestly considers these facts and insists, in true meekness and love, on his right to the evidence of them, the evidence appears: the difficulty yields, and he finds that he can speak in accordance with his need. Many a Scientist has proved that this is so.
