One day I dropped a silver teapot...

One day I dropped a silver teapot and broke its ebony handle. As I was repairing it, the screw driver slipped and penetrated the palm of my left hand. The pain was acute, blood spurted out, and the whole arm felt paralyzed.

When I came to, I heard myself repeating part of "the scientific statement of being" (Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy, p. 468): "There is no life, truth, intelligence, nor substance in matter. All is infinite Mind and its infinite manifestation, for God is All-in-all." As soon as I got to the words, "All is infinite Mind," the pain vanished and the bleeding stopped. I washed off the blood, and that was the end of the incident except for a series of aggressive mental suggestions which kept presenting themselves to my consciousness: You must have severed an artery, you will have to put on a bandage, you won't be able to use that hand tomorrow, and so forth. So I asked my wife to help me, and together we reversed every suggestion with statements of truth. The result was that the accident faded like the baseless fabric of a vision and left not a trace behind. The next day I traveled over a hundred miles to see a pageant, and the hand and arm were entirely normal in use and appearance. A day later I played golf.
