Graduated— Now What?

Congratulations! You have successfully completed a prescribed course of academic study. Now what? What is the next right step forward for you?

During the busy years of getting one's education the basic purpose of it all may at times be obscured by the demanding academic disciplines. When formal education has been completed, the next step of where to go, what to do, and how to work things out to find one's niche in life suddenly looms up in stark, sobering reality. One finds in most cases that the next decisions to be made he must make himself. Christian Science shows that direction in human affairs is best found in responding obediently to the guidance of the one Mind, or God.

In the spiritual relationship of man to God, God employs man as His reflection. This is not a future state of being; it exists now. The relationship between Principle and its idea is established not by man but by Mind. The responsibility to govern and guide the idea, man, is not man's but God's. Realizing this truth, we need never fear that we can lack Love's protection, guidance, and enduring support or be without proper employment.
