THE WINDS OF GOD

A Student very young in the study of Christian Science was sitting one afternoon on a pier overlooking the waters of a lagoon, when her attention was arrested by what appeared to be two birds motionless on the sands in the distance. When a sudden strong gust of wind sprang up, both began to stir. The one with a restless, uncertain movement was soon seen to be a lifeless piece of paper that was quickly engulfed in the rising tide. The other, with sure, free flight, rose above the encroaching waters and, skimming joyously above them, showed forth its living identity untouched by the disturbed elements around it.

The student was grateful for the lesson learned from this simple incident. She had been earnestly seeking to distinguish between false human concepts and true spiritual ideas, and here was a practical illustration. In our everyday experience we are repeatedly faced with the need to make a choice between the real and the unreal, and there are times when the correct decision regarding two courses of action may not at first appear clear or easy to make because of the pull of selfish human will.
