Don't Be Psyched Out
In recent years there has been discussion about "psyching up" for an activity or "psyching out" an opponent. During the Olympic Games in Montreal, reporters spoke with a number of athletes about psyching out their competitor or being psyched out in an event. In this practice an athlete tries to get his closest competitor in a fearful or hopeless frame of thought so that he is mesmerized into not doing his best.
Psyching out or being psyched out is not limited to the world of sports. We find it in business, politics, the arts—in any situation where mortal mind, evil, would have anyone believe that he is incomplete or unable to express some Godlike quality or that God, Truth, is not present or not all-powerful. Looking at each of these suggestions in the light of Christian Science, we can recognize the falsehood of each and rise to heights in understanding and accomplishment.
Christ Jesus said, "Seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you." Matt. 6:33; We need first to see that all are created by God, good, in His image, possessing all the qualities needed to fulfill the special purpose for which they were created. This purpose is to reflect in an individual way all that is true of God, Principle. Nobody can possibly lack anything that God has given. And God has given endless good to each of His children.
