Buoyancy in Spirit

A further attempt was made recently to cross the Atlantic in a balloon. We may not know in full detail what prompts such projects. But the Greek myth of Icarus, who flew with feathers attached to him with wax, the flying machine designs of Leonardo da Vinci in the Renaissance, and similar events suggest that humankind has long wanted to fly and to float free.

Parallel to the wish for physical buoyancy is probably the far stronger and more common desire to be able to soar above the stresses and anxieties of daily living. Christian Science shows how we can be buoyant in Spirit by explaining how we can drop off the weights of believing we live in matter. All that material thought can offer is varying degrees of heaviness. But buoyancy of spirit can be found in God, the one Spirit.
