WHAT IS GOD'S BEING?

In a Christian Science Sentinel of some years ago is recounted a legend of a man who wanted to find God. He searched and went to the highest points he could compass, only to be disappointed. Finally he said, "I will climb to the top of the very loftiest steeple,—surely, there I shall find Him." When the topmost point had been reached and he found nothing that spoke to him of God's presence, he cried out, "Dear God, where are You?" Then from the midst of the busy, thronging street far below him came a tender voice saying, "Why, here am I, down among My people."

Many today are searching for God and are saying with Job (Job 23:3), "Oh that I knew where I might find him!" However, they "seek far off for paradise," not knowing that, as a loved hymn states (Christian Science Hymnal, No. 391). "Before your feet Life's pearl is cast." May it not be that the reason mortals do not find God is that they do not know what He is and are seeking for a human concept, for a magnified human form localized in some place afar off?
