21When will the world cease to judge of causes from a personal sense of things, conjectural and misapprehen- sive! When thought dwells in God, — and it should not,
24to our consciousness, dwell elsewhere, — one must bene- fit those who hold a place in one's memory, whether it be friend or foe, and each share the benefit of that radia-
27tion. This individual blessedness and blessing comes not so much from individual as from universal love: it emits light because it reflects; and all who are receptive
30share this equally.
1Mistaken or transient views are human: they are not governed by the Principle of divine Science: but the
3notion that a mind governed by Principle can be forced into personal channels, affinities, self-interests, or obliga- tions, is a grave mistake; it dims the true sense of God's
6reflection, and darkens the understanding that demon- strates above personal motives, unworthy aims and ambitions.
9Too much and too little is attached to me as authority for other people's thoughts and actions. A tacit acqui- escence with others' views is often construed as direct
12orders, — or at least it so appears in results. I desire the equal growth and prosperity of all Christian Scien- tists, and the world in general; each and every one has
15equal opportunity to be benefited by my thoughts and writings. If any are not partakers thereof, this is not my fault, and is far from my desire; the possible per-
18version of Christian Science is the irony of fate, if the spirit thereof be lacking. I would part with a blessing myself to bestow it upon others, but could not deprive
21them of it. False views, however engendered, relative to the true and unswerving course of a Christian Scientist, will at length dissolve into thin air. The dew of heaven
24will fall gently on the hearts and lives of all who are found worthy to suffer for righteousness, — and have taught the truth which is energizing, refreshing, and consecrat-
To station justice and gratitude as sentinels along the lines of thought, would aid the solution of this problem,
30and counteract the influence of envious minds or the mis- guided individual who keeps not watch over his emotions and conclusions.
