Life’s fuller music will give forth rejoicing tones when heart meets heart, where all lovely gifts and pure are laid upon befitting shrines.  Joy hath a living fount, a bliss forever.  The heart hath vainly sighed, What shall the future be?  This is the future; heaven will be thine, but when its Life shall come no man knoweth, not “the son but the Father.”  Our sins are not forgiven (until forsaken),* here or hereafter; for every sin there is a just measure of misery, and death cannot advance our joy, nor make us wiser, better, or more pure.  The Science of all being must be learned ere this is won.  Bliss is not the boon of one brief moment.  After the veil has dropped, we have to learn the same as now our way to heaven, by slow and solemn footsteps, for no man cometh to the Father but through Truth and Love.  Mary Baker Eddy

(Carpenter, Gilbert, Fragments Gathered From Unpublished Items Ascribed to Mary Baker Eddy, p.66)
