THE PASSING OF THE DREAM

From the July 1909 issue of The Christian Science Journal


THE Scriptures refer to human existence as a sleep or dream, which evidently implies that so-called life in matter is an abnormal state of thought, in which the normal conditions of being are not cognized and from which mortals must awake to become conscious of man's spiritual identity and dominion as the child of God. David must have realized this when he wrote, "I shall be satisfied, when I awake, with thy likeness;" and Tolstoi evidently caught a glimpse of the same truth when he said, as recently reported, that he looked upon this life as but one of many dreams.
