Be yourself

Claim your spiritual identity––now!

From the February 2011 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Popular today are online courses, programs, and seminars on self-improvement. The themes range from confidence building to time management to learning how to cope with every-day life, and everything in between. Similarly, bookstores and Internet book sites are bursting with volumes on techniques and methods about dealing with life’s complexities and complications. Titles span success in business and relationships, how to get what you want, how to look good and feel better, how to make money, and lots of it. At the same time, there are books on how to balance frantic lifestyles, simplify and downsize one’s possessions, return to a less-is-more, clutter-free household, and begin a self-inventory to determine what’s truly significant and fulfilling. 

Titles with a spiritual or religious slant are also in abundance, pointing to the interest in spirituality rather than merely secular methods for finding meaning and purpose in life. There’s The Power of Simple Prayer, Giving Christ First Place, Whole Life Transformation, and Calm My Anxious Heart. A title for teens, It’s Not About Me, focuses on how young people can set goals for a “God-centric life” in a “me-centered” world.  

Christian Science impels us on a spiritual journey, where the destination is knowing ourselves through our inseparable and unbroken relationship to God.
