The scene was idyllic. Cool breeze, majestic view—the only thing wrong was the incessant clanging in the background, which got louder and louder the more I tried to tune it out . . . until I couldn’t tune it out anymore and woke up. I never did like that alarm clock!

Studying Christian Science can feel like an awakening. But although waking up from a sleeping dream may or may not be a welcome experience, when we wake to the presence of God, Love, caring for us and supplying every need, we always feel glad. 

The awakening itself, however, isn’t always comfortable. As a friend once commented, he sometimes feels scolded when he reads the Bible and the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy.
