I am glad to tell of some of the benefits derived from four years' study of Christian Science. The unfoldment has been gradual, and has not included sudden illuminations. I am very grateful for the protection, guidance, and comfort of the light I have had. The silent, unlabored energy of Spirit has purified desire, lessoned fear, and purged motives. From the choas of this so-called life the facts of existence are emerging, for I am learning that Spirit is the only substance, Love the only force, Truth the only reality. Turning promptly, resolutely, courageously to the light, destroys the false claims of mortal mind. I am grateful for the admonition in Science and Health (p. 407), "Let the perfect model be present in your thoughts instead of its demoralized opposite."

Many times I have proved that God is a present help in time of trouble. Soon after beginning the study of Science my mother called me down-stairs one night during a severe storm. While reading in the Bible my thought was arrested by the words from Isaiah, "My people shall dwell in a peaceable habitation, and in sure dwellings, and in quiet resting places; when it shall hail, coming down on the forest." The application of the lines was realized, and peace reigned in the home. On another occasion, as I was about to read a paper before a club, I found myself the victim of stage-fright. By promptly denying the reality of matter and mortal mind, and affirming the existence of the one Mind, and good as the only presence, I was able to read my article. The delivery was complimented by friends, and also my lack of self-consciousness.
