The Harmony of Being

Personal sense seems to be forever presenting to us a picture of some particular condition, environment, or relationship as being eminently desirable and essential to our harmony and well-being. Until we learn differently in Christian Science, we are apt to believe that these pictures of personal sense have power to give us an awareness of harmony, or to take it away.
