To the wakeful one

From the March 23, 1987 issue of the Christian Science Sentinel


If in the past-midnight darkness nagging unhealed worries angers fears sorrows pains doubts from which your up-and-at-'em/off-and-running daytime busying successfully (you thought) cloaked and shielded you now—unbidden—prick you to uneasy all-unwilling half-awakeness, why linger wallowing, drifting, resisting, postponing inevitable confrontation the active Christ in you demands? Dawning truth within is prodding you to grow! So up you go to study, listen, pray, unmindful more of sleep's comfortable allure. Persisting, you will rest in Love's sweet benediction, assured of Mind's unerring jurisdiction over you and yours and all.
