Christian Science has been a way of life to me. Through the proof of its teachings, I have enjoyed abundance and moral regeneration. Attacks of sickness have been obliterated, and the following experience is related to illustrate how healing is accomplished in Christian Science.

Sometime ago I was beset with much physical discomfort. There were fever spells, congestion, a sense of lethargy, and pain in various portions of the body. I endeavored to know the truth, but the erroneous condition did not yield. I continued with my daily duties, but soon I was unable to do anything else and commenced going to bed the moment I arrived home. It was then that I took stock and began self-questioning, receiving answers that were truly a revelation.

For the first time I perceived that it was not enough to repeat over and over again such truths as, "There is no life, truth, intelligence, nor substance in matter" (Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy, p. 468). What, exactly, did that statement mean? I asked myself. The answer was simple, but I pondered the meaning this time. Matter is a lie, a dream, a mirage, nothing, a false sensation, and therefore it has no basis in fact. I really glimpsed the truth of these assertions, which in turn gave me a clearer sense of mans embodiment of all that is spiritual, harmonious, and joyous in strength.
