"The anchor of hope"

We need to be aware of where our hopes are placed. If they are based on Spirit—on God's allness, His omnipresence—they will not give way to the dissuasions of mortal thought; our consciousness will remain stable and buoyant.

At a time of sorrow I found comfort by turning in fervent prayer to these words of Mrs. Eddy: "The nature of Christianity is peaceful and blessed, but in order to enter into the kingdom, the anchor of hope must be cast beyond the veil of matter into the Shekinah into which Jesus has passed before us; and this advance beyond matter must come through the joys and triumphs of the righteous as well as through their sorrows and afflictions." Science and Health, pp. 40–41.
