30the methods and power of error. While the ways, means, and potency of Truth had flowed into my consciousness as easily as dawns the morning light and shadows flee,

Page 223

1the metaphysical mystery of error — its hidden paths, purpose, and fruits — at first defied me. I was say-

3ing all the time, "Come not thou into the secret" — but at length took up the research according to God's command.

6Streams which purify, necessarily have pure fountains; while impure streams flow from corrupt sources. Here, divine light, logic, and revelation coincide.

9Science proves, beyond cavil, that the tree is known by its fruit; that mind reaches its own ideal, and cannot be separated from it. I respect that moral sense which

12is sufficiently strong to discern what it believes, and to say, if it must, "I discredit Mind with having the power to heal." This individual disbelieves in Mind-healing, and

15is consistent. But, alas! for the mistake of believing in mental healing, claiming full faith in the divine Principle, and saying, "I am a Christian Scientist," while doing

18unto others what we would resist to the hilt if done unto ourselves.

May divine Love so permeate the affections of all those

21who have named the name of Christ in its fullest sense, that no counteracting influence can hinder their growth or taint their examples.

TAKING OFFENSE

There is immense wisdom in the old proverb, "He that is slow to anger is better than the mighty." Hannah

27More said, "If I wished to punish my enemy, I should make him hate somebody."

To punish ourselves for others' faults, is superlative

30folly. The mental arrow shot from another's bow is

1practically harmless, unless our own thought barbs it. It is our pride that makes another's criticism rankle, our

3self-will that makes another's deed offensive, our egotism that feels hurt by another's self-assertion. Well may we feel wounded by our own faults; but we can hardly afford

6to be miserable for the faults of others.
