RETREAT AND GO FORWARD

Mary Baker Eddy writes in "Unity of Good" (p. 61): "The mutations of mortal sense are the evening and the morning of human thought,—the twilight and dawn of earthly vision, which precedeth the nightless radiance of divine Life. Human perception, advancing toward the apprehension of its nothingness, halts, retreats, and again goes forward; but the divine Principle and Spirit and spiritual man are unchangeable,— neither advancing, retreating, nor halting."

Often in human experience we find ourselves in need of retreating from the mutations of mortal sense. If we are Christian Scientists we find safety by retreating from false material beliefs into true spiritual thoughts from God. Sometimes in our march forward we need only to pause briefly to gain true spiritual consciousness and the realization of God's peace. At other times we may need to wait on God, watch with Him, and keep our thought so alerted that no enemy can find entrance into consciousness.
