An Illusion Dispelled

From the January 17, 1901 issue of the Christian Science Sentinel


While my entrance into the understanding of Christian Science was not through physical healing, I yet belonged to that large class who suffer from the many ills to which mortal flesh is heir, and to whom the changes of weather and the succession of the seasons bring, with dreary regularity, a train of ailments, fears, and miseries. As I look back to those days of bondage, from which, through Christian Science, I have happily escaped, I can readily understand why it is said of mortal mind that it deceives and deludes us, that it lulls to sleep and terrorizes with frightful dreams, calling them realities.
