The Fulfillment of Good in Our Lives

[Of Special Interest to Young Men and Women]

In classical mythology there is a story about a man named Tantalus, who for his sins was condemned by the gods to perpetual hunger and thirst. Although he was placed in the middle of a lake, and the water was up to his chin and although the finest fruits hung before his eyes, both water and fruit always receded when in his yearning he tried to partake of them.

Have not many of us at some time felt akin to this mythical mortal when, to human sense, our own aspirations and desires have been cruelly thwarted by a power seemingly beyond our control? How fortunate, indeed, are those who have learned through Christian Science to see frustration and unfulfillment for what they really are—myths of mortality, which have no part in the life of man, the beloved child of God, immortal Mind!
