When in need of help because of a physical breakdown, I called upon a Christian Science practitioner. He read to me from page 116 of Science and Health, where Mrs. Eddy refers to the following spiritual qualities: "Wisdom, purity, spiritual understanding, spiritual power, love, health, holiness." The practitioner then asked me where my love came from.

I answered, "From God, who is Love."

He replied: "Then you will not be afraid of losing it, and you can have as much of it as you wish, by expressing it. Now then, where does your health come from?" He then proceeded to explain that health comes from the same source as love and that I could have as much health as I needed. Thus I should have no fear of ever losing it, because it too is a quality of God.
