Alone, But Not Lonely

There is a craving in the human heart for friendship—someone to share with, someone to companion with. This is a natural human desire. In her Miscellaneous Writings Mrs. Eddy says, "Pure humanity, friendship, home, the interchange of love, bring to earth a foretaste of heaven." Mis., p. 100: If one has lost a dear companion and the future appears bleak without this loved one, or if one seems to lack friends, Christian Science shows there is something one can do to fill this void.

Basically the sense of aloneness arises from the mistaken belief that man is a mortal, born into matter and separated from God, divine Love; whereas the fact is that man is immortal, never born, never dying. He is the child of his Father-Mother God, infinite Life, who is tenderly caring for him.
