Life isn't a competition

In Science and Health, Mary Baker Eddy quoted the following verse from Hebrews: “Let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us” (12:1). She explained the meaning of this passage as, “let us put aside material self and sense, and seek the divine Principle and Science of all healing” (p. 20).

We progress more quickly when we discard whatever mental baggage we’ve been carrying around. A spiritual quest is more easily met by dumping the material beliefs, suggestions, and fears that we needlessly carry.
