Staying out of the land of Nod

It's not a happy thought, Cain's vagabond wanderings "in the land of Nod," Gen. 4:16. and today's Christianly scientific thinker takes active steps to eliminate from his or her consciousness those false views of life that would invite such punishment.

How does one handle those depths of evil that would punish us—hate, envy, injustice, despair, apathy, disease? How does one avoid wanderings into the mortal, material sense of such life prospects?

Answers to these questions are important if we're to stay spiritually alert and out of the drowsy, dreary, suffering mental environment epitomized by the land of Nod.
