From the September 1902 issue of The Christian Science Journal

PERHAPS we have all felt that to be alone with God means to be apart from human habitation and association,—in the wilderness, in the primeval forest, on a wide expanse of waters, and that perchance in some such remote spot we might become conscious of a separateness from worldly thought, and a oneness with God, impossible in the crowded haunts of every-day life, surrounded by our fellow mortals. A deeper insight, however, into the things of Spirit, which also includes a keener analysis of human thought and motive, and the claims of error, reveals more than this isolation of body or person as a pre-requisite to true aloneness, or communion with God.
