THE UPWARD WAY

Isaiah pictures what may be called in Christian Science a transformation from the desolation and dangers of mortal thinking to the joy and security to be found in the understanding that life is spiritual, not material. We read (35:1–8): "The desert shall rejoice, and blossom as the rose.... The parched ground shall become a pool, and the thirsty land springs of water: in the habitation of dragons, where each lay, shall be grass with reeds and rushes. And an highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called The way of holiness."

Every earnest student of Christian Science wishes to travel this highway which leads upward and away from materiality. Let us consider some of the requirements necessary for attainment of this goal, the understanding of man's true being in its perfection as the image of God. We need not think of ourselves as weary plodders. It is only in human experience that one needs to go through the process of climbing to spiritual heights, since the real man, the true selfhood of everyone, is and forever has been at the point of spiritual perfection, at one with God. The need is to cease believing otherwise. We must rise above this false belief in a mind separate from God. Let nothing divert us from this high purpose.
