THE SECRET PLACE

"He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty." How beautifully these opening words of the ninety-first Psalm express the thought of a sanctuary where one finds freedom from temptation and snares, poverty and humiliation, sorrow, sin, and disease! All the vagaries of mortal thinking are excluded from "the secret place of the most High." But there is no limit to the good that is revealed there. One cannot be conscious of anything but good in the presence of God, and access to this presence is always possible.

Mary Baker Eddy says in "The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany" (p. 244), "The 'secret place,' whereof David sang, is unquestionably man's spiritual state in God's own image and likeness, even the inner sanctuary of divine Science, in which mortals do not enter without a struggle or sharp experience, and in which they put off the human for the divine."
