At one time my life was filled...

At one time my life was filled with misery and heartache. Even though I had been reared as a Christian Scientist, my religion meant little to me, for I did not know how to apply it. Every avenue of loving my neighbor as myself seemed to be closed to me. Try as I would to love my neighbor, figuratively speaking, no results were manifested, and evil was returned for good time after time.

Then one day I realized that in order to love my neighbor as myself, I first had to love myself. This was such a revolutionary idea to me that everything took on new significance. Through regular church attendance, I began seeing Christian Science as the way of Life and not merely as another religion. It gradually unfolded to me that "loving" meant seeing man as God has created him, as His perfect child.
