I became interested in Christian Science over two years...
I became interested in Christian Science over two years ago, in my native country (Chili, South America), through the healing of a friend, and my healing was not physical but a great spiritual quickening. Since childhood I had always been looking for something, I did not know what, and my mortal concept of existence did not satisfy me at all. There was something lacking in my consciousness, and nothing I had yet found could fill it.
Sometimes I was confused with the seeming power of evil; God seemed so far away and so difficult to reach. I was not satisfied with my religion either, for many things connected with it seemed too absurd to be true; I always thought that wordy prayer is foolish, and that God seemed sometimes willing to answer and sometimes not. I had read the Bible many times, but to me it was contradictory; there were too many points nobody could explain. The problem of life seemed complicated and discordant.
A few years prior to my investigation of Christian Science, I began to read a great deal and became interested in many of the so-called sciences, healing systems, and philosophies, but learning nothing of the "one thing" which could supply my lack. When however, the divine Truth was brought me by a dear friend, I knew at once I had found what I was looking for; it satisfied entirely the craving of my life, and I rejoiced in the assurance that evil is unreal—is only a false belief. The divine law of Love discovered by Mrs. Eddy seemed perfectly logical and natural, and at the same time so simple that I wondered why I had not thought of if long ago. To know that Mind is the master, and body the servant, encouraged me very much.
