One can undertake any journey with a sense of serenity and freedom when he understands the spiritual fact that he is not in reality a mortal being carried by a rapidly moving vehicle from one part of the globe to another. Christian Science teaches that man does not dwell in a physical body at all, but in the perpetual consciousness of his identity as the child of God. Man is spiritual because his creator is Spirit, and he has that dominion over all the earth which divine Mind, God, bestows upon His image and likeness. To grasp the truth of real being aids one in demonstrating safety and harmony in his human pursuits and enables him to take the necessary footsteps with wisdom and foresight.

The many useful means of transport which human thought is evolving with increasing rapidity in these days point to still mightier discoveries in the realm of Spirit, where no sense of limitation exists. Whilst the Christian Scientist makes use of human inventions, he understands that a train, ship, car, or plane is a manifestation, or object, of human thought; and although he recognizes the usefulness of such inventions, he knows that in reality his life is not controlled or endangered by matter. The man of God's creating is governed wholly by the infinite, divine Principle, and consequently he cannot be confined to a limited space.
