The Exalted Point of View

Frequently one hears the statement, "It depends on your point of view," as a rationalization for action or the lack, of action. In every human situation that is presented to him, the Christian Scientist learns to turn to God. To know that man is the perfect reflection of God and that the universe is one harmonious whole— spiritual rather than material—is to attain the Godlike view. By rejecting material appearances as unreal, the Christian Scientist gains a diviner point of view.

The effects of a higher view were illustrated to the writer when he and his family were camping in Switzerland at the foot of rugged mountain peaks which thrust upward from the shore of a lake. Sitting by the lake, the family could see two red cars of a cog railway puffing in and out of apertures on the opposite cliffs on their way to a higher and more remote peak.
