GOVERNMENT BY PRINCIPLE

From the September 1909 issue of The Christian Science Journal


So  much of human nature has for so long been governed by all the conflicting elements of the anarchy called self, that government by Principle lies, like an undiscovered country, far beyond the borders of finite comprehension. The mental standard and moral codes of the civilized world hold much that approximates a high and selfless order of living, yet even this fruit of righteous effort may spring from right desire rather than from an enlightened understanding of the relation of God's man to his governing Principle, God.
