Which way to turn? One right road is now open, and the signs are clear

CHOOSING OUR COURSE ARIGHT

Daily, hourly, continually, the opportunity comes to men to make right decisions. Mary Baker Eddy shows the importance of our decisions in determining human experience when she says (Miscellaneous Writings, p. 19): "Between the centripetal and centrifugal mental forces of material and spiritual gravitations, we go into or we go out of materialism or sin, and choose our course and its results." Then she asks, "Which, then, shall be our choice,—the sinful, material, and perishable, or the spiritual, joy-giving, and eternal?"

With what certainty does our Leader lay the responsibility for his choice entirely upon the individual! Shall we not accept as real, as necessary, and as satisfying only that which is good, that which expresses God? Such acceptance, coupled with persistent refusal to accord intelligence, power, or reality to that which is not good—to that which must be forever unknown to the all-seeing Mind, God—inevitably results in an experience characterized by harmony, spiritual joy, abundant good.
