THE BASIS OF REAL JOY

SOME months ago an inquiring photographer, unobserved by the public, caught and published in a well-known magazine interesting studies of various types of people as they passed along the streets of a large city. The statement was made that no one smiled. There seemed to be no evidence of happiness, serenity, or peace. Faces were tense, worried, or depressed; men and women alike seemed to be joyless.

This is an interesting comment on the state of human consciousness today, and it clearly demonstrates the important contribution that the teaching of Christian Science is bringing to humanity through its joyful ministry. The world unquestionably needs joy; we all need the joy of Spirit. We need it more and more, and Christian Science declares that through a correct understanding of God we may have it immeasurably. Joy is the unmistakable stamp of a real Christian Scientist. It is the indication that something has come into his think ing that has changed his outlook and is expressed in a happiness which he spontaneously manifests. In fact, joy and spontaneity go hand in hand. They are unfolding evidences of Soul.
