THOUGH THE GROWING POPULARITY of Global Positioning Systems may seem to make getting lost almost impossible on the road, there are still millions of people who are searching to find love, healing, and direction in their lives. Has there ever been a greater call for divine guidance and wise direction than right now—in the war-torn streets of Gaza, among world leaders trying to make wise decisions about the global economy, or among people desperate for a job and a way to put food on the table?

What the Science of the Christ, as revealed by Mary Baker Eddy, shows is that people everywhere have all the guidance they need to help them to their God-appointed destinations in life. We all have ready access to a spiritual compass that's unaffected by electronic interference, weather conditions, or human discord. At any time or place we can listen for the divine guidance the prophet Isaiah spoke of when he said, "Your ears will hear a word behind you, saying, This is the way; walk in it, when you turn to the right hand and when you turn to the left." (Isa. 30:21, Amplified Bible).

Recalling how the Israelites made their way through the Red Sea and through the wilderness, Mrs. Eddy saw with great clarity that thoughts—spiritual ideas—are able to "guide all right desires in their passage from sense to Soul, from a material sense of existence to the spiritual, up to the glory prepared for them who love God" (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 566). This exemplifies the spiritual light that points the path of anyone who turns to prayer in moments of doubt or wandering.
