I was brought up in a home where Christian Science alone was relied on for healing, and I wish to express my gratitude for the benefits this religion has brought me. The greatest of these has undoubtedly been the awakening to the reality of spiritual existence and to the way in which this understanding may be exercised intelligently in human affairs to help improve conditions around one. Undoubtedly the foundational training I received as a child, both in my home and in the Christian Science Sunday School, laid a sound basis for subsequent study over a period of more than thirty years.

For many years I was subject to airsickness under even mild conditions of disturbance. During World War II, whilst I was serving as an administrative officer with the Royal Air Force in the tropics, this condition was very inconvenient. Despite some measure of alleviation as a result of treating myself in Christian Science, it continued to make traveling by air a matter of distaste.

On my return to Australia I had the privilege of having class instruction. With the increased understanding gained from this experience I was more successful in treating myself. On one air trip of five hours' duration I worked prayerfully for some two hours, and I gained a clear glimpse of man's true environment in Spirit, outside of material laws and conditions.
