"THE REFINEMENT OF JOY"

THE words of the title of this article appear on page 101 of "Miscellaneous Writings" by Mary Baker Eddy. Here she asks some questions in regard to inspiration, spontaneous healing, and demonstration. Her beautiful answer follows: "He alone knows these wonders who is departing from the thraldom of the senses and accepting spiritual truth,—that which blesses its adoption by the refinement of joy and the dismissal of sorrow."

There is a cry the world over for "the dismissal of sorrow" and a hunger for "the refinement of joy." If only one could have money, health, right occupation, all would be well is the thought expressed by many. But through all time it has been proved that these things in themselves do not bring happiness, and mankind eventually learn that matter never satisfies mortal mind.
