Recession—making it recede

Falling profits, declining gross national product, nervousness about investment, expectations of increased unemployment—whatever the signs and symptoms of recession, the underlying factors are mental before they are outwardly economic. We contribute to recession—or to neutralizing recession—according to our mental standpoint. One of the first results of admitting the importance of thought is that we feel less helpless, more confident that we can contribute to solutions. All suffering—economic, physical, relational—can be alleviated, and finally destroyed, through the understanding of God as Christ Jesus knew Him. God is infinitely good, the substance of all reality. His economy is in constant harmony.

It is inevitably healing, corrective, regenerative, to perceive this divine reality—God's perfection and man's expression of it. Christian Science is mankind's window on reality. What we are seeing—more than that, what we are living and being—is the precursor of what we experience.
