ESSENCE OF HAPPINESS

[Of Special Interest to Young People]

HAPPINESS belongs to man by divine right. Mary Baker Eddy says (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 57), "Happiness is spiritual, born of Truth and Love." Unhappiness is negative, a suggestion of mortal mind, and therefore is not real. One need no more submit to unhappiness or sorrow than to sickness or sin. All these beliefs the student of Christian Science early learns to resist and destroy. Through Christian Science we all can demonstrate the God-given ability to lay hold on happiness or joy in ever-increasing degree. Man, the spiritual offspring of divine Mind, sees, knows, and expresses the qualities of his Father Mother God at all times and under every circumstance.

Affirmation of this truth for oneself and others brings added joy, peace, harmony, and an ever greater understanding of our heavenly Father's guidance, provision, and protection. Continuing her explanation of true happiness, Mrs. Eddy says (ibid.), "It is unselfish; therefore it cannot exist alone, but requires all mankind to share it."
