Concerning Transportation

Even in ordinary circumstances the function of transportation enters into the human experience of practically everyone. Mortals appear continually to be in need of transportation from one place to another, and their movements seem frequently to be fraught with difficulty, involving delay, obstruction, and accident.

Under conditions which obtain at present there is the necessity for transporting large numbers of men and great quantities of material to different parts of the world. The question of safe and expeditious transportation is, therefore, one which is engaging the earnest attention of many persons. This being the case, it is of more than passing interest to consider some of the facts concerning transportation as viewed in the light of the teachings of Christian Science.

First of all it will be well to establish in thought the fact that man, in his real nature, is not a physical organism which is in need of being transferred from one place to another in space or in time. Man is spiritual and exists as consciousness, not as matter. Man, being the exact likeness of his creator, divine Mind, necessarily reflects or expresses the qualities of Mind, including omnipresence. Therefore, man does not have to be conveyed to a particular place at a certain time. He is already and always there. Knowledge of this fundamental truth operates, in human experience, as a law of elimination to fear, worry, hurry, uncertainty, and doubt. Likewise divine law, invoked through right knowing, prevents accidents and saves from destruction. "The Lord shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore," is the assurance contained in the one hundred and twenty-first Psalm.
