All's right with the world 

In passing over a mountain trail one's point of observation is often changed. Sometimes the traveler finds himself upon the edge of a precipice, looking down into dark and narrow valleys. Sometimes he climbs the heights and looks abroad over a superb and varied panorama of grand peaks and broad horizons. In our experiences of life, we find that everything related to our happiness depends upon our point of view. 

We may lift up our eyes unto the hills even when walking in the valley of the shadow. We have wings; like the dove, we can fly away and be at rest. We can dwell in the con- fines of personal suffering, or gain the higher table-lands from which we can see the glory that excelleth in the universal life spread out before us. 

The world is wearied with complaints of "hard times," "financial depression," and "social discontent." We are always looking to the future for remedies that never come. Let us open our eyes awhile to the possibilities of the present, and lay aside the smoked glasses of prejudice and ignorance through which we have looked at life. Let us identify God and man as inseparably united, — learn to unfold our latent powers and study the higher gospel of true worldliness. We will perceive that the Banquet of Life is always spread. Nature herself goes out into the highways and hedges to compel us to come in. None is really shut out from the feast except the self-exiled. All cause of suffering is in the individual himself. Life in very truth is opulence and equity.

When we have a new perception we shall gladly disburden the memory of its hoarded treasures as old rubbish. — Emerson.

What is '^nature's law.'*" Is it not simply the horizon that limits our knowledge of today.'' Tomorrow we will have climbed higher — we will have a more elevated view — we will restate the law. Yesterday we discovered gravitation. Today we are discovering magnetism. Yesterday the bit of metal fell to the ground. Today it rises to the magnet in obedience to an occult law of levitation which has apparently transcended for the moment that of gravitation. We must not be too arbitrary in our definitions. We need not hurry to reach conclusions. 
In the end, we shall doubtless find that spirit governs every element and is absolutely free of limitation. This seems to be a good working hypothesis today,
