About sixteen years ago I was taken ill with a very severe attack of palpitation of the heart. A Christian Science practitioner was called, and talked and read to me from "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy; but I still seemed very ill. I asked her if I should not have the members of my family called home, as everything was getting very dim before my eyes. I felt as if I would not be here very long; but with her faith and confidence in God to heal, she replied that everything would be all right. She continued reading and finally came to page 331, where she read these words: "God is divine Life, and Life is no more confined to the forms which reflect it than substance is in its shadow." I asked her to read the words again; and while she was reading them I realized that Life was not in my body, that Life is God and that I reflected this Life, God. Immediately everything before my eyes became clearer, and I began to improve. As I grew stronger, however, nervous prostration, nervous indigestion, and other forms of discord appeared. I held on, however, to the words in Science and Health which I have quoted, and also to those found on page 393: "Be firm in your understanding that the divine Mind governs, and that in Science man reflects God's government" —and I was healed.
About four years ago I passed through great sorrow in the loss of a dear daughter. The thought came to me, that there is no death, that she had wakened to know that there is no death, that God was her Life and would enable her to work out her problem; and these thoughts were a great comfort to me. Some time afterward I let thoughts of grief, condemnation, and self-pity come in, which caused much mental and physical suffering; but with the help of a loving practitioner I was relieved of them most beautifully.
