On page 14 of Science and Health our Leader says: "Become conscious for a single moment that Life and intelligence are purely spiritual,—neither in nor of matter,—and the body will then utter no complaints. If suffering from a belief in sickness, you will find yourself suddenly well." Recently I had occasion to experience the truth of this statement. For upward of ten days I had, to mortal sense, been suffering greatly from an attack of stomach trouble. Accompanying it was a hard, dry cough, which strained my head terribly each time I coughed. I had borne this attack so long that I had begun to see crooked, that is, in a mental way. To me the whole world was wrong; every one in it was wrong; even Christian Science was wrong.

One Sunday, after I had been at home about an hour from the morning service at church, the thought came to me to read over the next Sunday's Lesson-Sermon, and from the beginning I became so absorbed in it as to be entirely unconscious of my surroundings. Every line seemed to be a prayer for me. On finishing I moved about the house attending to my duties with this wonderful lesson in mind, till a neighbor called. When I turned from the door on seeing her out, I realized for the first time that my body had ceased its complaints. This thought startled me at first; then a feeling of awe passed over me,—I had received a benediction. The next sensation was one of joy that I had experienced a healing. Then, in the twinkling of an eye, all was changed. The world was all right; every one in it was all right; Christian Science was all that it claimed. I was myself once more.
