The Importance of Being Spiritual

Well may the world's chaotic condition be likened to a man who, having braved the rapids in a canoe, finds his canoe upset and himself struggling to keep his head above water. Suddenly he sees a rock, and, making a final effort, he battles through the surging waters to where safety and peace are to be found.

On page 593 of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," Mary Baker Eddy points out that "rock," spiritually understood, signifies "spirital foundation; Truth." Thus, when one sufficiently exerts himself to establish his thoughts and therefore his experiences on a spiritual foundation, he finds real individuality, security, and peace. To have this firm base it is necessary to realize that now, and at all times, man is spiritual, above the swirling eddies of mortal existence, out of reach of the hatred and lust of the carnal mind, impregnable in Truth, imperishable in Life.
