LETTING GO

A Student of Christian Science standing within earshot of two men who were engaged in a heated discussion heard one of them say loudly and rather caustically to the other, "Why don't you let go and be yourself?" The student pondered this remark in the light of Christian Science and reasoned that to be yourself, that is, to claim one's real selfhood as the perfect reflection of the one Father-Mother God, necessarily entailed the letting go of material concepts which cause one to believe that man is sometimes outside the perfection of infinite Mind.

Fear often causes us to hold to the very mortal beliefs which defraud us of happiness and abundance in our human experience. A child does not learn to walk unaided until there is a letting go in his thought of the fear that he will fall if there is not something or someone to hold to. So we must be alert to recognize and let go of false beliefs to which we are holding and claim and demonstrate the dominion which, as the Scriptures reveal, is the heritage of every child of God.
