Overcoming adversity in human relations

When faced with discordant human relationships, we can remember that the most important thing is not that we're confronted with tribulation or strife. The most important thing is the standpoint from which we work in dealing with it.

Praying in Christian Science for a right solution, one naturally adopts a spiritual standpoint quite the opposite of outward mortal appearances of discord—the standpoint of man's indivisible at-one-ment with divine Love. Not a mortal standpoint of many warring personal mentalities, but the spiritual standpoint that God, the one Mind, is the only Mind of man. Animosity and conflict have no actual place in this all-embracing Mind, or Love, hence no place in Mind's reflection—and therefore no place in our real being or that of others.
