The joys of dissatisfaction

From the August 2021 issue of The Christian Science Journal


We don’t generally think of dissatisfaction as something to be grateful for. Yet where would we be without the constructive dissatisfaction of innovators who can’t rest until they’ve invented a tool to do something more efficiently? How would human rights have progressed without the action of those dissatisfied with injustice? Similarly, there’s a kind of dissatisfaction within each of us that’s not only positive but essential, according to Mary Baker Eddy, who discovered Christian Science.
