Some years ago I came to a state...

Some years ago I came to a state of mind where I did not want to live, because life had become so purposeless to me. An unhappy experience in marriage and the long years of the depression period, during which I had to support myself and my child, had left me in a weakened physical condition that finally led to tuberculosis. I asked an acquaintance of mine to get me "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy. As I read it great joy came to me. Every time the symptoms of tuberculosis appeared, I would glorify God and know that He had never created disease. In about two months all the symptoms disappeared, and they never appeared again.

The allness of God and the unreality of evil and of time unfolded to my thought. I understood as never before the Scriptural verse (II Pet. 3:8), "One day is with the Lord as a thousand years," and Mrs. Eddy's explanation of it (Science and Health, p. 504), "The rays of infinite Truth, when gathered into the focus of ideas, bring light instantaneously, whereas a thousand years of human doctrines, hypotheses, and vague conjectures emit no such effulgence."

About two years later I contracted pneumonia. I was alone at home and in such pain that I could not move. I prayed to know man's unity with God, and Jesus' words, "I and my Father are one" (John 10:30), came to me. All of a sudden I saw myself as actually perfect, just as God had created me and sees me. Immediately there was no trace of pain or other symptoms of the disease. Divine Love flooded my consciousness, and I wanted to run to my neighbors and tell them how beautiful and good they were and how much I loved them. It was heavenly!
