For a long time I had been praying in Christian Science about a problem in human relationships. It was of such a personal nature that I felt reluctant to talk about it with a practitioner. So I prayed as best I could. But the difficulty did not yield. In fact, it worsened until it affected me physically. And I discovered that more and more I was nurturing false gods—resentment, self-pity, and discouragement. It was then I decided to ask for the help of a practitioner.

After I poured out my woes she looked at me kindly and said, "You seem to have a very deeprooted fear." This startled me, for I had not listed fear as one of the false gods I had been worshiping. But fear was there in my consciousness, and the penetrating thought of the practitioner had discerned it.
