PLACE AND PROTECTION

Finding our true place or home does not result from a material search, but rather is it a mental discovery. Place and protection are found together. This is beautifully expressed in the first verse of the familiar ninety-first Psalm: "He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty." Christian Science teaches that man, as the idea of God, eternally dwells in the "secret place"—in his God-established unity with his Father. A Bible concordance defines "dwell" as "to have a fixed residence in a place." There is no coming or going here, no wears' searching, no hopeless longing.

Suppose one seems to lack a home. How can the words of the Psalmist just quoted be applied to the solution of his problem? By understanding that because man's home is a "fixed residence," inhering in his oneness with Mind, it is not subject to the vagaries and fluctuations of human belief. Seeing home as wholly a spiritual idea and clinging steadfastly to this truth, he will find his human need manifested in a material home.
