LAYING HOLD ON REALITY

"When faced with a difficult or unsolved problem each one might well ask himself, "Do I apprehend reality?" If the answer is "Yes," we may be sure that the problem is well on the road to solution. In order to be sure, however, that the answer is "Yes," we must first have looked deep into reality, into the truth of being as Christian Science reveals it, and must have in a measure assimilated this truth.

A fact of being needs to be apprehended, not merely admired. We must lay hold upon the spiritual fact, then hold on to it. Merely to acknowledge it as beautiful and grand is not enough. Apples in a basket may be beautiful, but they will give us no nourishment until we eat them. To say that man is the image and likeness of God is true. But however true, however lovely, a statement may be, it needs to be apprehended and taken into our consciousness before it becomes our very own.
