A boulder or a boat? Projects and divine Mind’s direction

From the March 13, 2017 issue of the Christian Science Sentinel


When you think about a large project you need to complete, what comes to thought? Do you picture yourself pushing a boulder up a steep hill? Or can you see yourself steering a graceful boat with sails full of wind? Corporate seminars tackle this subject by providing techniques for managing difficult tasks, often using metaphors to explain their ideas, and these can be helpful to kick-start the creative process. But metaphors are much more likely to forward our progress if there is a connection to spiritual truth.
