Waking from the dream

Most people regard material existence as stark reality, and its vicissitudes appear either to deplete them of joy and well-being or to falsely stimulate and excite them. The first group may become resigned to conflict and disappointment, while the second may be so satisfied with materiality that they feel little need for spiritual values.

But material existence is only a dream. And Mrs. Eddy says in Science and Health, "Better the suffering which awakens mortal mind from its fleshly dream, than the false pleasures which tend to perpetuate this dream." Science and Health, p. 196; Sooner or later each one of us must awake from the dream of pleasure and pain in matter and realize what life really is.
