From the January 1960 issue of The Christian Science Journal

The symbol of a ladder leading heavenward has been used in the book of Genesis ( 28:12 ), where it is recorded that Jacob dreamed, "and behold a ladder set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to heaven: and behold the angels of God ascending and descending on it. " To one lost in the wilderness of mortal thinking, it is helpful to know that there is indeed a practical way out of his problems, a sturdy ladder upon which he may steadily progress toward the realization of heaven, harmony.
