A swift healing

I was recently working in my garage at a workbench I have at the rear of the space. I was adding an extension to a hockey stick. The sticks are hollow, and a solid wooden extension can be added into the end to make it longer. The extension was larger than the hole and got stuck partway in. I was using a knife to shave the wood so it could fit into the hole. I slipped and cut my thumb. My first thought was, “This is not good,” but before that thought was even uttered a second came “What you think is more powerful ….”

This was a reminder to me of a statement by Mary Baker Eddy in her book Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures. The full passage, along with the ensuing paragraph is: “When an accident happens, you think or exclaim, ‘I am hurt!’ Your thought is more powerful than your words, more powerful than the accident itself, to make the injury real.

We'd love to hear from you!
