A way through the wilderness
The Christian Science Monitor
As my husband and I traveled through the desert Southwest, the scenery was drab and dry, mostly sand, rock, and tumbleweed. The trees were scrubby and far apart. It reminded me of the children of Israel wandering in the wilderness. But when I later looked up wilderness in the Glossary of Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy, I discovered that I had been missing some of the deeper meaning of the children of Israel's desert wanderings.
Mrs. Eddy gives a two-part explanation of wilderness. The first part, "Loneliness; doubt; darkness," embodies what I'd been seeing. But the second urges us to a more spiritual perception: "Spontaneity of thought and idea; the vestibule in which a material sense of things disappears, and spiritual sense unfolds the great facts of existence."
