Restoring the Masterpiece

We occasionally hear how a masterpiece has been discovered under another painting. Perhaps someone has picked up a "find" at an auction or in an attic. Is there a hidden image under the grime and film? Usually, if a double picture is suspected, restoring it is left to the skilled hands of an expert.

In Christian Science, from the standpoint of perfect God and perfect man, we work with pictures (mental ones), always striving to conform them to the original—God's likeness. Indeed, restoration work is a must if we would go forward Spiritward. The pictures we work to correct are what each of us holds in thought and finds translated into daily experience: images of ourselves, our families, friends, associates; our homes, churches, activities, careers, government, and so on.
