Receptivity Is Native to Man

From the January 1972 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Sometimes a person asks, "Why can't I be more receptive to Truth? Why can't I realize more clearly the presence and power of God? Why can't I grasp spiritual facts of God and man more quickly?" Actually, receptivity to Truth—the ability and willingness to receive spiritual understanding—is native to man. God is omniscient Mind, the all-knowing One, the source of all intelligence and power.
