"You have no choice but to live"

An ensign related to the writer that while he was on a ship escorting a convoy submarines were sighted late one afternoon. The submarines approached the escorts from both sides of the convoy in an effort to draw them away for the customary morning battle. The young man immediately turned to divine Mind in that threatening hour, and almost at once an angel stilled his fears with this comforting message: "You have no choice but to live."

He had learned in the Christian Science Sunday School that the real man expresses his Maker, and that man lives because God is Life; hence it was inconceivable that man could die, since cause could not be extinguished. Man, reflecting God, is the evidence of Life. This young student had also learned that when one turns to divine Mind, Spirit, with all his heart, a spiritual idea is available to protect, instruct, or heal any discordant situation.
