When it seems as if a crisis would hold us down, spiritual buoyancy helps us meet the challenge and move forward.

Resilience is a most desirable quality in human experience when we see it as an attitude of elasticity and buoyancy Resilience helps an individual to recover from crises, to function more effectively amid the rapid pace and change in today's society, and to continue to make progress. What does Christian Science teach us about how to gain a deeper, spiritual basis for this valuable quality?

Christian Science teaches that an understanding of God and of man's relationship to Him enables us to look beyond a challenge and ask ourselves what God, divine Mind, knows as actually taking place in divine reality. God is perfect Principle, the only creative, conceiving Mind. God creates and knows only what is good, harmonious, and eternal. There can be no chaos or crisis in the kingdom governed by perfect Mind. And, in reality, this divine harmony includes the man of God's creating.
