Every day I am more and more grateful for the revelation of Christian Science, and for the continuous blessings it is bringing to me. It is twenty-three years since I first heard of Christian Science from a friend who had been instantaneously healed of insomnia and internal complaints of some years' standing while at a Christian Science lecture. I am glad to say I appreciated the beauty of the Christian Science services from the first one I attended; also the textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, which I borrowed, and the New Testament, which I had never read before, having been brought up in the Jewish faith. Indeed, I felt that I had never heard of or read the truth before; and I was able to help not only myself but others also as the glimpse of Truth lifted me to the mount of revelation. This lasted for a few months, and then I came down into the valley to prove the truth by demonstration. At times the way has been very dark, but I can rejoice now in a clearer understanding of my unity with God and a realization of His presence and power.

A fear of mesmerism and hypnotism, which I first had when taken as a child to see a certain play, has been overcome, as well as anxiety and worry, fatigue and weariness. It is wonderful every day to turn to a loving Father-Mother for guidance and help, and always to receive that help. At one time, while I was doing some church work and thinking over its problems, the words of Jesus came to me as if spoken, with a new revelation of their meaning, "Ye shall seek me, and shall not find me: and where I am, thither ye cannot come;" and I saw that although animal magnetism, hate, or malice should seek for me, they could not find me, for I abode in the sanctuary of Truth and Love. where they cannot come, I saw "it was to enter unshod the Holy of Holies, where the miracle of grace appears, and where the miracles of Jesus had their birth" (Miscellaneous Writings, p. 77).
