It was a great experience to me...

It was a great experience to me when I read for the first time the truth of God and man in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy. I experienced a deep sense of peace and inspiration such as I had never known before. It was as if I were seeing everything anew, for the basis of my thought was changed from matter to Spirit. As Mrs. Eddy says (ibid., p. 259), "The Christlike understanding of scientific being and divine healing includes a perfect Principle and idea, —perfect God and perfect man,— as the basis of thought and demonstration." Questions bothering me at the time just vanished, and I saw in a degree that man cannot be subjected to material beliefs. For many hours each day I read from Science and Health. Soon the necessity of applying what I had been learning became apparent, and the opportunities to do so followed.

One of these opportunities came while I was serving in the armed forces. One day I felt discomfort in my eyes; and looking in the mirror I noticed that they were quite inflamed. A fellow soldier said: "You had better see the doctor; you have pinkeye. The medics say that if they see more of it they are going to segregate those who have it."
