Air safety: what we can do
The United States Congressional hearings delving into the problems of maintaining safe flying conditions may well prompt many of us to examine our own thoughts regarding safety. The question is, Will we "pray without ceasing," as Paul says in First Thessalonians, or will we wait until we are about to take a flight and then pray that we will go and come safely?
The hearings before the Congressional committee dealing with possible violations of the aeronautics safety code highlight an area of worldwide concern, and in doing so these hearings remind us of the fundamental place of prayer in relation to safety. Human errors can be minimized or eliminated as thinking is freed of mortal limitations. Such limitations disappear when thoughts become more and more directly related to the intelligent Principle of the universe.
This Principle is not a mysterious, unknown God but divine Love, the source of all unselfed, loving thoughts, the one real Mind of man. Prayer is characterized by pure thoughts in communion with their divine source. It often involves a struggle within as we strive to reject thoughts that are less than divinely motivated. Prayer for today—each day—can serve as spiritually mental illumination, bringing the light of the divine Principle itself into human consciousness collectively and individually.
