Thought Quality Determines Experience

In the light of Christian Science human experience is viewed as the product of thought. The thoughts we entertain in consciousness determine the nature of our experience just as certainly as the slides inserted in a projector determine the picture on the screen. A viewer displeased with the projected image wouldn't assail the screen to force it to come up with a more acceptable view. Neither should we expect that by trying to maneuver human circumstances—people, places, things—we will come up with a better experience.

In much the same way as the solution to an unpleasant picture is to have better slides, the solution to an unsatisfactory experience lies in inspired thinking.
