A high school senior who was carrying a heavy scholastic program and taking active part in extracurricular activities was anxious to attain college entrance grades. He decided on his own initiative to spend about two hours each day at a nearby Christian Science Reading Room learning more about God and man's relationship to Him. At the end of the school year his grades were more than adequate to permit him to enroll in the university without special examinations. Commenting on this experience to his parents, he said that he had had so much to do that he could never have gotten it done if he had not spent the time in the Reading Room.
What was the influence which enabled this student to do so well in his schoolwork? It was the Christ, Truth, which he willingly admitted into his consciousness. This spiritual force of divine Mind helped to purge his thoughts of fear, pressure, weariness, and limitation. It awakened him to the consciousness of man's perfection as the child of God.
It is of value for anyone who is faced with a testing time to learn that there is only one God, one ruling Mind or consciousness. Each idea of God is a perfect expression of the one infinite Mind. Each functions in direct obedience to the dictates of that Mind. Divine Mind is never separate from man, and man is never separate from Mind.
