SATISFACTION AND DISSATISFACTION

There is wisdom in the remark that one should be dissatisfied enough to improve, but satisfied enough to be happy. True satisfaction comes through the understanding of the spiritual and joyous condition of man, God's perfect child. Mary Baker Eddy writes in her Message to The Mother Church for 1902 (p.17), "Happiness consists in being and in doing good; only what God gives, and what we give ourselves and others through His tenure, confers happiness: conscious worth satisfies the hungry heart, and nothing else can." Satisfaction is gained with each yielding of human will to divine rule. Such yielding lifts human thought step by step to the recognition of the worth of man in God's sight.

Some people are dissatisfied because they are tired of waiting for the world to give them a chance to use their talents. But there is no need to wait. The world's want is apparent if we have eyes to see. Each Christian Scientist can start with the spiritual truth of God and man and use it in his immediate experience.
