About eleven years ago I was employed as a secretary in an office. A severe skin irritation developed on my left hand. Since I am a secretary and my hands are constantly in view, I was quite embarrassed. I had treatment from a Christian Science practitioner, but I apparently was so busy making a reality of the condition that I wasn't responding to her good work. I would go to her office and cry because I was so miserable.
Then one Sunday in church as the First Reader read from I John, third chapter (verse 2), "Beloved, now are we the sons of God" (as I had heard it read for thirty years), I suddenly realized that this applied to man, to my own true selfhood, that man is the son of God right now. And if this is true, how could I possibly be manifesting anything so unlike Him? It wasn't more than a few days before my hands were white and normal again.
About four years ago when I was studying the Lesson-Sermon on "Mind" one day during the so-called hay fever season, I suddenly was so uplifted with the thought of Mind being God, God being All, and Mind being All, that I knew I could be healed of this ailment. I immediately called a practitioner and requested help. I had suffered from hay fever for thirty-five years, and I saw it was time to call a halt. How could pollen affect me if God is the only cause? God doesn't cause problems. One treatment was sufficient. That was the last time I experienced the symptoms. A time or two the following year I had to "stand porter at the door of thought" (Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy, p. 392), but the error never got in.
