Setting the Keystone

keystonekey·stone  /ˈkēˌstōn/  A central stone at the summit of an arch, locking the whole together. The central principle or part of a policy, system, etc., on which all else depends.

A few young men, practicing their masonry, began constructing a rock arch here in town. The comment made was, “It’s really important to have a proper keystone.” The keystone set the sight. It was used as a starting point to work from.

“Building the arch was like putting a puzzle together, but we had a good keystone to start with, so the project is moving along nicely,” added the journey mason. Is this similar to forming our spiritual power and spirituality?


When practicing spiritual healing, the keystone must be truth, life, and love. Then our building will not be in vain but will be formed into a symmetrical life, albeit with our own beauty, individuality and character. It takes time, but time we have, to start with the divine and work from the divine.

We read in 21st Century Science and Health, “The voice of God in behalf of the people is reverberating around the world, sounding the keynote of universal mental freedom. A fuller acknowledgement of the rights of man and woman as useful spiritual beings demands that the terrors of sin, sickness, and death be exterminated from the human mind.”

“Scientific metaphysical practice begins with Christ’s keynote of harmony, ‘Do not be afraid!’[1]
