CLAIMING OUR HERITAGE OF JOY

What is happiness and where is it to be found? Our Leader, Mary Baker Eddy, tells us on page 57 of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures": "Happiness is spiritual, born of Truth and Love. It is unselfish; therefore it cannot exist alone, but requires all mankind to share it." True happiness is understood only by spiritual sense, and its realization is never at the mercy of matter or material circumstances.

Mortals commonly believe that if they were to acquire worldly wealth or were located in a particular environment or business position, they would readily attain happiness. Many spend fruitless years toiling to this end, only to find that happiness, like a will-o'-the-wisp, has eluded them. Since happiness is "born of Truth and Love," which are synonyms for the one Mind, God, it is found only in God, not in any material place, person, or circumstance.
