"BOTH WINGS MUST BE PLUMED"

A FRIEND unaccustomed to air travel remarked, "I'd fly if I could keep one foot on the ground." This remark is a reminder of a statement made by Mary Baker Eddy in "Miscellaneous Writings" (p. 267): "The bird whose right wing flutters to soar, while the left beats its way downward, falls to the earth. Both wings must be plumed for rarefied atmospheres and upward flight." Mrs. Eddy made excellent use of imagery to drive home important points.

Acceptance of the Christ, the true idea of God, is essential in healing the sick and overcoming limitations imposed on mankind by the belief that man is material. Halfway acceptance of the omnipotence and omnipresence of God is not enough. Radical reliance, undeviating allegiance to Spirit, ensures progress.
