Right Answers—Here and Now

Have you ever been tempted to look merely to persons, places, or changed circumstances for the solution of problems? If so, you may have discovered it's a dead-end road! The answer may indeed appear to be a change of employment, a move to another location, or some other human adjustment. But in Christian Science the correct adjustment comes from first aligning thought with divine Principle, God, and then allowing God's law of harmony to adjust the human situation. Thought thus spiritualized avoids needless and discouraging detours; it puts aside the roadblocks of self-will, mortal maneuvering, and willful human outlining.

But how does one go about aligning his thought with God, particularly when there may be a pressing problem at hand? One of the practical directives given in the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, is, "Immortal Mind, governing all, must be acknowledged assupreme in the physical realm, so-called, as well as in the spiritual." Science and Health, p. 427; Such a recognition of the absolute sovereignty of immortal Mind requires spiritual resoluteness in turning away from beliefs of material sense. It includes firm denial of the belief of conflicting minds and discordant circumstances.
