Invest or Divest?

The stock market has fallen,

shares reach an all time low,

from Wall Street, London and Hong Kong

come forecasts full of woe.

A sense of panic sets in,

great fears of substance lost,

with calculators hard at work

to quantify the cost.

Then quick as light an angel thought –

Where is true substance found?

Does it reside in


of dollar, franc or pound?

Think from another point of view: –


your thought of fear

that matter can be substance true

when God is all that’s here.


your thought of sly false trusts

of plenty or recession:


it of all anxious thought

that you can lose possession.

So here’s the great attainment –

Not trust in stock and share

But knowing

God’s abundance

Is with us


“To divest thought of false trusts and material evidences in order that the spiritual facts of being may appear,–this is the great attainment by means of which we shall sweep away the false and give place to the true. “

(Science and Health 428:8)
