Waken from the Dream of Suffering

How absurd it would be to attempt by physical means to relax the rigid muscles of one having a bad dream! In such a case would a physician resort massage, to drugs, or, in an extreme case, to amputation? No. He would know that the remedy is to waken the sufferer out of his overwrought mental condition called a nightmare. Then the body would relax.

The understanding of the mental nature of all discord and disease is vitally important. Mrs. Eddy writes, "To the Christian Science healer, sickness is a dream from which the patient needs to be awakened." Science and Health, p. 417; In this Science, the real, spiritual man is understood to be God's likeness and to be constantly under the harmonious control of divine Mind. Sickness is not part of the divine creation, and hence it is understood as unreal.
