I have learned to make Science a think of life, not words, and I am going to tell you what this wonderful secret is.  This is it:


Not to see, or hear, or repeat any kind of imperfection.  It is seeing, hearing, and repeating good, and good only, at all times and under all circumstances, ins spite of everything that appears to the contrary.  I make this resolution every morning when I first open my eyes, and I renew it every hour of the day.  I see perfection, the perfect cause and perfect effect; perfect God and perfect man, and I refuse to make any kind of exception. I refuse to admit the slightest imperfection in myself, in my friends, in any kind of the so-called enemies, in my affairs or in the affairs of the world.


I take my stand for the perfection of God and everything and everybody that He has made, and I look upon the world with God’s eyes and see it as He sees it, and I refuse to see it any other way.  I stop a dozen times a day to renew my declaration, and to make sure I am not repeating error, or giving way to fear or criticism.  I watch my thoughts even about the people I pass, the lame, the old, the unlovely (to sense), and I will not absolutely will not, give up the perfect standard.


The result has been marvelous.  Try it and you will forget to wear glasses; they will become unnecessary.  The outward conditions are pictures of our inward thinking.  To change that picture, one must change the thoughts that produce the picture.
