Preference-free

From the October 2013 issue of The Christian Science Journal


One afternoon, as I was enjoying a day of research in The Mary Baker Eddy Library in Boston, Massachusetts, I came across a document in which Mrs. Eddy was noted to have instructed her students: “Having no preferences, you can be so absorbed in the divine Truth as not to think of anything else, you would be fed and clothed” (notes by Joshua Bailey, A12065, The Mary Baker Eddy Collection, The Mary Baker Eddy Library).
