140 — WATCH lest you believe that error can rob you of your spiritual thinking, wherein lies the only power of a Christian Scientist. It is Delilah, or animal magnetism, that attempts to rob our Samson of his spiritual strength by cutting off his hair. Hair symbolizes all the thoughts that go to make up consciousness. When these are spiritual, one is invulnerable to any evil suggestions, and hence filled with divine strength. When one believes that error has robbed him of spiritual thoughts, — or can do so, — he has yielded to the Delilah temptation.
It is false belief, or illusion, that would suggest to man that he can be robbed of God’s thoughts. Let us rise superior to this suggestion.
