I HOW TO BEGIN Every art has its technique and none more than the
art of living. In every profession weexpect to give years of
preparation in hard study before we can hope to at tain any degree
of mastery. But in the greatest of all arts we too frequently
expect to achieve without struggle. Each life presents its
individual problem. Is not the courageous facing of this problem
and the persistent effort to find its wisest solution the most
important duty that confronts us If for even a short time each day
we can turn away from all that is material and troubling, and live
above space and time, for that period we will be living in the
Kingdom of God. Through meditation, quiet thinking and prayer, we
can get self out of the way and leave the channel free for divine
life to work through us. Each morning before the machinery of the
day is set in motion we should seek a quiet spot and make a
conscious readjustment of our personal lives to the high est
possible spiritual level. We will find that being thus alone with
God brings us to see things from His stand point. It is only by
being still that one can ever hope to hear the divine message.
