"LISTEN FOR THE MOUNTAIN-HORN"

In an article in "Miscellaneous Writings" called "An Allegory" Mary Baker Eddy presents the everpresent Christ as saying (p. 328), "Make thine own way; and if thou strayest, listen for the mountain-horn, and it will call thee back to the path that goeth upward." What a clear directive for listening for the things of Spirit!

What is "listening"? Mrs. Eddy implies what it means in her definition of "ears" in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 585) where she says, "Not organs of the so-called corporeal senses, but spiritual understanding." Listening with the ears of spiritual understanding, we gain Spirit's revelation of all that is spiritual, we perceive the unfoldment of the truth of being. This listening, the manifestation of spiritual sense, reflects Soul's realization of its own perfection. Spiritual listening makes one conscious of Life's unfoldment of the Holy of Holies, Truth's expression of the scientific fact of being—the governing control of all-inclusive Truth. It causes one to perceive Love's outpouring of infinite, illimitable goodness, expressing itself in man's perfect living.
