Air traveler perceives man's unity with God and finds joy instead of fear in flying

"IN THEE WE DWELL"

Let no student of Christian Science be disheartened when he is faced with a need to overcome fear. As we progress in the study of Christian Science, it becomes more and more dear that human experience is a dream. No part of the dream of material existence is real; and just as when one awakens from a sleeping dream he is no longer even tempted to believe he is in the places or situations presented by the dream, so as we awaken from the dream of materiality and refuse to identify ourselves with the limited, discordant, suffering mortals it presents, we shall more clearly realize man's true identity, our eternal relationship to our heavenly Father, and the perfection of His divine universe, in which there is no person, place, or thing to be feared.

Fear results from a sense of separation from God. When one is afraid, one is not at that moment conscious of the presence and complete protection of God. When one is afraid, he seems to himself to be unaware of the all-inclusiveness and power of divine intelligence, which is God. But God, intelligence, is omnipotent and omnipresent, and the realization of this fact dispels fear. Paul wrote (II Tim. 1:7), "God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind."
