RADIO PROGRAM No. 345 - How Do I See Myself?

Speaker: You know, the concepts we entertain of ourselves have a direct bearing on the harmony of our existence. For this reason, it is good often to ask ourselves, "How do I see myself?" Our guest today will tell you how an accident showed him that he needed a change of thought about himself. He discovered that as he gained a clearer understanding of his own true identity as a son of God, he was healed of severe burns. I should like to introduce Dayton Arvidson, of Tulsa, Oklahoma.

When did this occur, Mr. Arvidson?

Mr. Arvidson: This happened in the summer of 1950. I was a salesman in the machinery business, but one day I went into the back of the shop to do some work. As I turned around quickly, I stepped into an open can of gasoline, soaking one trouser leg thoroughly. I didn't pay too much attention to it and went right on with the work. Then, about an hour later, I had to use an acetylene torch. I'd forgotten all about the spilled gasoline. When I lit that torch, it ignited the gasoline, and the first thing I knew my trouser leg was on fire.
