Out of the dream and into Truth

From the April 2020 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Asleep early one morning, I suddenly found myself in the middle of a very bad dream. Since this was not a place I wanted to be, I decided, in my dream, that I would shout some statements of truth as loudly as I could. Referring to three of seven Bible-based synonyms used in Christian Science to describe God, my words were something like, “God is my Life; God is my Mind; God is my Soul.” Then I said, “And now I am going to wake up!”

At this point I forced myself to do just that. It was interesting that this waking-up part took more effort than I had expected. It was as if I were breaking through several dream layers before surfacing into normal consciousness.

Grateful to be awake, but feeling some discomfort and depression, I realized it would be a good idea to study that week’s Bible Lesson from the Christian Science Quarterly. So I went to the table where my books were ready waiting, opened my Quarterly, my Bible, and my copy of Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, and began reading.
