SLEEP—OR REST?

"Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest" (Matt. 11:28). To the tired watcher in the night, or to the one who labors with an unsolved problem, much comfort is given by these tender, compassionate words in which Jesus called on weary humanity to accept in thought the healing Christ, and thereby find peace and rest.

To rest is to be still, to feel comforted, assured, protected from all fear. The belief that this blessed state of rest and quiet can be obtained only as the result of long hours spent in the unconscious state known as sleep is a common delusion that has been uncovered by our revered Leader, Mary Baker Eddy. In her textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," she writes (p. 218), "The consciousness of Truth rests us more than hours of repose in unconsciousness."
