[Original testimony in French]

In teaching me that all that is...

In teaching me that all that is not Love is hate, although it may be more or less disguised, and that anything that is not Love has neither truth nor power other than what we give it in belief, Christian Science has freed me of a heavy burden. What is more, it has given me an inkling of the meaning of the statement in Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy (p. 298), "When the real is attained, which is announced by Science, joy is no longer a trembler, nor is hope a cheat." This understanding healed me of the fear of influencing erroneously and of the fear that others could exercise any harmful influence over me and mine, to hinder, hurt, or interfere in any way.

These fears were manifested in mistrust, defensiveness, resentment, combativeness, and fatigue, and they produced exactly the bad effects dreaded, proving that they were only sly forms of hate or the supposed absence of Love, for "perfect love casteth out fear" (I John 4:18). When I understood this, I realized the truth of Mrs. Eddy's statement, "You will also learn that in Science there is no transfer of evil suggestions from one mortal to another, for there is but one Mind, and this ever-present omnipotent Mind is reflected by man and governs the entire universe" (Science and Health, p. 496).

I understood also that this could help me see the world situation more correctly, and that rivalries, misunderstandings, and wars would disappear just as the following physical difficulties caused by these fears have disappeared in my case: dizziness, fractured skull, sciatica, fever, coughs, limitation, and inharmonious environment.
