I once heard a Christian Science lecturer say that if we're not having a good time practicing Christian Science, we're not practicing Christian Science! I agree with that wholeheartedly, for I find this teaching a joy!

A practitioner to whom I used to pour out my troubles was always joyful. Whenever I left her office, instead of saying, "Goodbye," she'd say, "Have fun!" Sometimes that seemed a bit incongruous, considering the difficulty that I had, but it was true. We can always be joyful for the fact that our difficulties are in the realm of belief, not reality. If they were real—of God—then we'd be in big trouble, because we wouldn't have a scientific basis for destroying them.
