Discipline and harmonious living

I spent my high-school and college years performing as a clarinetist. My life was benefited by the discipline and joy afforded me through that study. During this time my commitment to the study of Christian Science deepened, and I was thrilled to see that Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, discusses music and harmony in her writings.

For example, she tells us in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures: "The realization that all inharmony is unreal brings objects and thoughts into human view in their true light, and presents them as beautiful and immortal. Harmony in man is as real and immortal as in music. Discord is unreal and mortal." Science and Health, p. 276.
