Wings of joy

Reprinted from the January 6, 1962, Sentinel

Birds have long been symbols of upward-soaring joy, freedom, buoyancy, and vibrant living. What a joyful melody comes from the western meadowlark as he sings on the wing! This hints the unlabored joy and unfettered freedom of spiritual sense and of ascending thought.

Christian Science teaches humanity how to sing on wings of joy. It corrects the false concepts of man as a joyless and discontented mortal by revealing the man of God’s creating, the spiritual man of joyous activity.

Physical sense cannot recognize the man of joyous reality. But spiritual sense is conscious of the true individuality of each one of us as it exists in divine Love, incorporeal, fearless, and sinless, controlled only by the divine will.
