A little incident has frequently helped me in my work in Science,—one told by a grown person, of herself when she was a child, not more than perhaps eight or ten years old. She said that she had a fear constantly at twilight, if she chanced to be on the street, that some one was back of her; and she would run to get away from the supposed person, and the faster she would run, the more she became assured that there was some one back of her. And even as a child, she argued to herself, "Why no, there is no one back of me; I know perfectly well." But she didn't have the courage to find out the truth. But finally one day when she was especially affected by the fear, she stopped suddenly and said to herself, "I am going to turn around and prove to myself that there is no one here." She did so, and of course there was no one pursuing her.
I have often thought of this, and it has helped me very much in Science, because evil claims to be pursuing us and to be pursuing those who are suffering and coming to us for help. It claims constantly not only to pursue, but to overtake and destroy health and even life; and nothing but Christian Science can ever give any one courage enough to turn about and know there is nothing there but God,—but Good. When we do it, we always find the proof that Good is omnipresent, that Good does destroy hate, that Life does destroy death.
