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.
