"The centre and circumference of being"

One who finds himself faced with a serious difficulty may find that his thoughts contract. All of his previous pleasures and interests tend to become unimportant. His thought narrows to total absorption with the difficulty. While thought is thus centered, no solution seems apparent, but as soon as thought becomes more thoroughly God-centered, it expands, and error's claim to dominion is broken.

Mrs. Eddy states that "God is at once the centre and circumference of being." Science and Health, pp. 203, 204; Error, or a finite, material sense of being, therefore has no real claim to existence. To free his thought, one can know that because "God is at once the centre and circumference of being" there is, in reality, no influence that can narrow one's thinking and exclude the consciousness of God, or good.
