    “Physician, heal thyself.” Let no clouds of sin gather 27and fall in mist and showers from thine own mental atmosphere. Hold thy gaze to the light, and the iris of faith, more beautiful than the rainbow seen from my 30window at the close of a balmy autumnal day, will span thy heavens of thought.

356:1    A radiant sunset, beautiful as blessings when they take their flight, dilates and kindles into rest. Thus will a 3life corrected illumine its own atmosphere with spiritual glow and understanding.

    The pent-up elements of mortal mind need no terrible 6detonation to free them. Envy, rivalry, hate need no temporary indulgence that they be destroyed through suffering; they should be stifled from lack of air and 9freedom.

    My students, with cultured intellects, chastened affections, and costly hopes, give promise of grand careers. 12But they must remember that the seedtime is passed, the harvest hour has come; and songs should ascend from the mount of revelation, sweeter than the sound of 15vintage bells.

    The seed of Christian Science, which when sown was “the least of all seeds,” has sprung up, borne fruit, and 18the birds of the air, the uplifted desires of the human heart, have lodged in its branches. Now let my faithful students carry the fruit of this tree into the rock-ribbed 21nests of the raven’s callow brood.
