The Solution Within

Among the unsolved problems which bring suffering to mankind today there are few which could not be traced to the belief that a solution is dependent upon a change in someone else's thought but not in our own. The world is threatened with war because others think their way is better than ours. A community lacks adequate schooling because others do not wish to part with the tax money to provide it. A church does not progress because others think apathetically. A home is the scene of strife because someone is unloving. A disease develops in the body because of the frustration that one feels because he is unappreciated.

In every case the solution would seem to lie in a change of thought on the part of others. But Christian Science shows us that the only change needed is on the part of the one who is experiencing the discord.
