From the March 1937 issue of The Christian Science Journal

At some time in our lives, the insistent questions come to each one of us: Why am I here? How came I to be here, and for what purpose? In the endeavor to answer these questions thought begins to travel in many directions for something that is comforting, something that will quiet longings and still unsatisfied desires. These questions and the effort to find satisfying answers revolve continuously and inevitably around the one central point, namely, What is existence, or, What is the meaning of existence? The revelation of Christian Science, through Mary Baker Eddy, unfolds the meaning of true existence as substance, reality, good.
