"What we can certainly fulfil"

That all real progress is spiritual must be understood, if we would meet arguments to the contrary which are advanced today. To some young men it may seem that a promising education, profession, or business career has been rudely interrupted by present conditions; that induction into the armed forces is diverting one's success in specific lifework beyond recovery.

An understanding that opportunities are not born of chance, and that harmonious lifework is not dependent on degrees, years of employment, time, or circumstance, enlarges one's vision, disproves the false testimony which would claim otherwise, and reveals the opportunity for progressive demonstration in the present moment. Mary Baker Eddy writes in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 256): "Progress takes off human shackles. The finite must yield to the infinite. Advancing to a higher plane of action, thought rises from the material sense to the spiritual, from the scholastic to the inspirational, and from the mortal to the immortal."
