We have to cope with the world and the problems it brings us with the body and its needs. There is no evading them. Yet on the other hand, we have to recognize that in Absolute Truth there is no world, no body, no problems--only the one infinite timeless Being. How can we meet this enigmatic dilemma? Christian Science denies the dilemma in theory, but is untrue to its denial in practice. This is why so many have passed into its portals only to emerge again in later years. Philosophy counsels us to admit the plain fact, to cultivate a bifocal vision, and to see the relative truth where and when we want it but always fitted into the larger absolute truth.
