Metaphysics: a practical discipline

From the February 1980 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Before I began to investigate Christian Science, I thought all metaphysics was some farfetched abstract theory in the clouds of human intellectual reasoning, which extraordinary people and unscientific scholars used as an escape route from the world of reality. I also thought that in its religious aspects, metaphysics was the same as occult mysticism, available only to initiates and hermits.
