Q. When I am awake all seems well. In sleep, dreams take over, and there is violence and all that is wrong. How can I get rid of this monster?—from a reader in New York

A. I have found this comment helpful: "... if you fall asleep, actually conscious of the truth of Christian Science,—namely, that man's harmony is no more to be invaded than the rhythm of the universe,—you cannot awake in fear or suffering of any sort." It's from Retrospection and Introspection by Mary Baker Eddy (p. 61).
