I eat breakfast each morning by a window. Precisely at the same time every morning a large jet airliner crosses the sky, always in the same direction. As I watched the beautiful ship one morning, keeping to its course, right on schedule, I began to think of this in the light of Christian Science.
What might "keeping on course" mean to the Christian Scientist? Doesn't one have to start with his or her thinking?
Christian Science teaches that to a great extent one's thinking determines one's experience. Mrs. Eddy writes in Science and Health, "Hold thought steadfastly to the enduring, the good, and the true, and you will bring these into your experience proportionably to their occupancy of your thoughts." Science and Health, p. 261.
