Divine Direction

A young woman who had been studying in our Reading Room for some time put the following question to the librarian as she was leaving: "I wonder if I am progressing in Christian Science:" The librarian told her that if she was earnestly studying Christian Science and listening for divine direction, she could not help progressing.

The young woman replied, "I do listen, but sometimes I wonder if it is mortal mind or God, the one divine Mind, that I hear."

To this the librarian said, "If you have first spiritualized your thought through study of the Bible and Mrs. Eddy's writings, and then are obedient to divine direction, you will be at peace, knowing it is God's guidance, and not mortal mind's suggestion.
