"Clearer, higher views"

Recently my wife and I had occasion to follow a certain route each day into a city, but we always arrived at our destination wondering just where we had been. Then one night we saw the city from the top of a fifty-two story building. Now, high above the city, we found that its streets and parkways were stretched before us for careful observation. Off in the distance a string of lights marked the path we had been following. Landmarks took on new significance. Rising above the level of the city, we had gained a new perspective, a clearer, higher view.

Mrs. Eddy writes: "We cannot fathom the nature and quality of God's creation by diving into the shallows of mortal belief. We must reverse our feeble flutterings—our efforts to find life and truth in matter—and rise above the testimony of the material senses, above the mortal to the immortal idea of God. These clearer, higher views inspire the Godlike man to reach the absolute centre and circumference of his being." Science and Health, p. 262;
