An abundance of gratitude for the ever-presence of God causes me to share the following experiences in hopes of helping others. One evening while I was preparing for a trip to the mountains during a school break, an undesirable suggestion of the possibility of accidents sought admittance into my thinking. As the suggestion persisted, I saw the necessity of reversing the aggressive thought and obliterating its claim to any part of true consciousness.

On page 424 of Science and Health, Mrs. Eddy writes, "Accidents are unknown to God, or immortal Mind, and we must leave the mortal basis of belief and unite with the one Mind, in order to change the notion of chance to the proper sense of God's unerring direction and thus bring out harmony." How clear it was ! Accidents are absolutely unknown to God. Only when we elevate our thinking above "the mortal basis of belief" do we leave behind the possibility of our being cut off from God's government. Unity with God is harmonious direction. I went to bed and woke refreshed the next morning.
