Our Gold Mine

What a waste of time to envy others the talents they possess, when our own gold mine lies undiscovered! Talents buried under layers of false beliefs, fears, and blindly accepted limitations are of no use to us. Mrs. Eddy says in Science and Health, "The talents He gives we must improve." Science and Health, p. 6;

Everyone has an abundance of talent, but to find it we must be willing to reverse negative habits of thinking. Our talents begin to spring forth when we turn away from material personality to God, the divine Mind, the source of man's ability. We stand then at the very threshold of awakening to hitherto unrecognized talents. With Mind as the starting point of our search, we begin with the simplest rule of truth's application, namely, to express without postponement the highest good we know in our present situation.
