If we do not feel the danger and go right on as though everything were all right, declaring you are all right, you can not die, etc., when the seeming is all wrong, you will not be watching with God.
When we feel the danger then we earnestly turn to God.
When one is drunk without wine – mesmerism, apathy – he will talk with a thick tongue something like a drunken man; I can always tell it; they must arouse out of such a sense. I (Mrs. Eddy) was in a street car once when a drunken man came in and sat down. I said mentally, ‘You are a fool and don’t know it.’ I kept thinking that and nothing else; in a few moments that man was perfectly sober; it had roused his dormant sense to the situation, and when he saw, that was the end of it. Keep awake – watch; the right kind of watching. Mary Baker Eddy (Oakes Richard, Course In Divinity and General Collectanea, p.13)
