through quiet consciousness of good

Quietness in times of turmoil, calm replacing agitation, trust overcoming fear, peace in the midst of a robust and tumultuous family—these are qualities that all men and women can express, because these qualities are derived from God and belong to all His offspring.

Through Christian Science we learn that we reflect God's qualities, and in proportion as we bring them into expression in human experience, they enable us to overcome evil and magnify good. Quiet confidence, gentleness, calm expectancy of good, are effective components of inspiration. They develop in human experience as we become conscious of the fact that "we live, and move, and have our being"Acts 17:28; in God. They come with the consciousness of one's own being as the idea of God, immortal Mind.
